I checked a couple of things (e.g. whois data, mcafee button (its from another site, so its fake), returns policy). Reeks of a scam to me.

Yip, because that's the kind of email address you use when you have an online shop.

And parkerpensnz.com.
Why not just parkerpens.co.nz? The domain is available.

Very dodgy indeed.

The poor design and the huge "Western Union" logo at the bottom should start alarm bells ringing ;)
