Could be, I have never heard of them before, strange pricing, lots of question marks!!!!!! Probably got to add VAT, but even then some of their prices are keen. Try the phone number

When you "just" look them up in "whois", they seem legitimate enough. The record shows:

Domain Name: FIRSTCAMERAS.NET

Domain servers in listed order:

NS1.FIRSTCAMERAS.NET 85.112.126.90
NS2.FIRSTCAMERAS.NET 85.112.126.90

But when you then look up the IP address, another story turns up:

inetnum: 85.112.126.0 - 85.112.126.255

Conclusion: Don't just use whois to check the domain name. Use the IP address to be sure, where the server is located. :-)
