I've never heard of them before, but that doesn't mean much I guess. Just read their mission statement;

"Our mission is to empower females globally to be confident in themselves and be who they want to be. We is a bold, straight talking and forward thinking fashion brand inspired by real life that aims to do exactly that. Everything we create is informed by our customer along with global influences like social media, street style, and popular culture, creating a destination that delivers and encompasses everything it means to be a girl on the go in the world today."

Now that should attract quite few old Cox engine lovers, right...? Huh...

Bob, it looks to me like the scammers who you tried to buy that $400 engine for $40 on evil Bay, have set up a website based store. This time you won’t have e bay to intervene and return your money. I couldn’t find any type of real contact, name or address ( land or e mail) in any of the content at the bottom of the pages, other than being assured your credit card would be charged for your purchase as soon as you touch the “buy” button on the order form. I wouldn’t feel comfortable giving any of my personal info or credit card numbers to this web page.

Fake site. They pull Ebay ads and post them as product. There are many of these.

You have a good memory Rene, but I think it was worse, a $750 engine for $22 or something like that. I try to forget that episode. Smile

It makes me more cautious today. Listed is an Enya .049 for $23 similar to one I just bought for $136. Tempting, but a no-go for me.

Mr. Google tells me this:

The same shop sells an Enya 25SS muffler:
https://www.crazespecial.top/enya-ss25-ss30-special-muffler-assy-nip-p-184.html

If you look closely at the image, you will find that the image is identical (including creases in the plastic) to the one from Shtterman on ebay (who is the real deal for sure);
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ENYA-SS25-SS30-SPECIAL-MUFFLER-ASSY-NIP-/222891932098

If you open the image at the "crazespecial" site you'll also find that it has a source link on ebay, case closed.... No

In fact all the Enya items in the crazespecial store look like they are taken from Shtterman....

Sounds like a scam operating out of Malmo I'd say.
