Default Anyone buy stuff from dhgate.com?

I was looking to buy some extra JR power safe receivers and they are no longer made by JR but found some on this DHGATE.com web site.
I'm not familiar with them and via their 'chat': they said they are available and out of china.
I was looking for this item:
https://www.dhgate.com/product/ar121...SABEgIVc_D_BwE

It says sold by RETECHS and are located in china.
These used to sell for 200-250 bucks and they have them for only $45-50.
The 'chat' said they are new and appear to be in the pictures.
When I tried paying with my MC, the card denied payment.
I got an email saying I need to confirm payment: I'm guessing this was done since it was out of the USA: although, I have no problem buying stuff on ebay that is located in China.
I checked their rating and they are around 4 or so.
Just wondering if anyone has dealt with this web site plus the old saying, when the item is really cheap, there is a reason! I'm hoping they are cheap because new stuff is now out and I'm still using my JR 11X.
Thanks for any input.
Sam

Thought I'd buy one 12 channel X power safe receiver.
Ordered the item on 9-27 and got here on 10-6: Only 9 days from China.
I've ordered other stuff and it can take up to 3 weeks.
Cost was $53.56 with free shipping
No fancy box but just a non-static envelope.
Came with everything except a soft switch which I, previously, bought from Horizon for a few 'back ups'.



I linked it to my transmitter and all 4 satellites worked.
I only plugged in one servo to the throttle and only used one battery and it works so I assume all the other channels work, also.
I bought the spectrum AR12120-X version. I made sure it was the -X and not the -2,
although -2 should work OK unless you have 1000 pilots at the meet!
