OT Reporting possible abuse without actual proof?

This is probably pretty off-topic, sorry, but I figure it is worth

Has anyone seen this site?  widescreenplasma.com

They claim to have blowout prices on plasma TVs.  However, because they seem
"to good to be true", i.e. a $4,999 TV for $999 so I was somewhat skeptical.
However, I figured the quality would be poor.  So, I got the model number
and I went to a local retailer and looked at it.  The thing looked great...

So, excited I went home to look again at the order page but this time it
said in big, uppercase red letters at the top "DANGER DANGER DANGER DANGER
FOR A FRAUD".  I think it was an image.  I didn't save it unfortunately.

So later on the same day I decided to show my room-mate how I almost got
ripped off buying something on the Internet but when I went back there just
now to show him, the banner with the red uppercase letters is gone!

Although the site is a little low budget and fairly convincing, I still
don't believe the site is real, and I think it should probably be reported
to someone.  However, I don't actually have any proof of any wrongdoing.  As
of right now, I haven't reported it anywhere but here.

Any thoughts?  I mean If I am wrong, I don't want to publish lible about, or
spread slander about anyone.
