Whilst searching for some DeWalt batteries I came across this website:

https://toolexs.myshopify.com/

UK based, with prices so low that I suspect it to be a scam, they call themselves Toolexs.

Its a very legit looking website, secure... has to be a scam? I googled their name and most of the results are for a legit company; Toolex.

Where do you report these issues?

Dave

Interesting - post code doesn't exist. Be wary.

These are the people to forward phishing emails to so presumably they want to know about fake sites as well.
You could also or instead send an email about it to the genuine company, if you are sure you have found the genuine company.

it's not infallible, but if it is a legit business they could well have a presence on ebay / amazon, which would be worth cross checking with. At least on those sites you have a little extra protection.
