Unless the sum involved is trivial I make it a practice before making internet purchases to look up the domain at DNSStuff.com (http://www.dnsstuff.com/)

And then check the company using Webcheck service at Companies House (http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/)

Hopefully you can then be reasonably confident that UK/EU Consumer Law will apply and you will get the protection of the Distance Selling Regulations.
