Yes, it's in italian. Google translation:

I was primarily reacting because it claims to be a Gyraf, which it's not (you know, the usual web cleaning) - but then I notice that every and all prices in that shop are magically just below 50EUR. And looking closer, they share their customer service (customerservicehome.com ) with some online pharmacy...

Is this some sort of a new type "give us your mastercard number" scam?

Any guesses?

I don't think so... The whole website seems to be a scam. Look at the price. Everything around 42€

And a 3% discount if you use MasterCard.  Very specific.

It occurred to me that the G9 was a completely random addition to a random group of products.

So I did a reverse image search to see if this item was present elsewhere.

And it looks like the true origin is an eBay sale.

So I guess the site you found is just a scam site that picks stuff off the web, and puts it into the same format. Might even be doing it based on your search!?

Do a search for "gabriknovin.com"....

Reveals a lot of related scam sites, selling stuff like Adidas shoes. Most sites are 48 years old  ;D

Seems to be run from Iran? Server is from an Indian company (meiliqihegongsi) and hosted in Kansas City (DataShack, LC). Meiliqihegongsi seems to operate thousands of domains...

Shoes are a popular item though. Spose everybody needs shoes...  :)

Definitely a scam. Not reported yet for scams, but for malware and spam.
Why is it people love to believe and hate to know?
