How do you tell if a website is genuine. I recently ordered off here http://www.beko-spares.co.uk/products/product/?p=4869&highlight=WMA520S which is the spare parts supplier for Beko.

I found it by googling Beko then following their website link. Wot gave the http://www.beko.co.uk/ a good rating. Then the website it took me to was unrated by wot but by clicking on the picture thing in the url box it was verified by something by clicking on the little pic in url box.

Top one looks a bit iffy.beko-spares.

Bottom one looks ok. beko.co.uk.

I don't think that I would order anything from the top one.

The top one, beko-spares, is actually linked to from the Beko.co.uk site...

It's a link on this page; http://www.beko.co.uk/partsandaccessories.aspx

with the words to the link being; "spare parts distributor website."

So I wouldn't be concerned about it.
