Potential Scam Site Selling Cheap LEGO. Patchworkandcraft.com.au

I did my regular search for prices on LEGO Creator Expert Corner Garage 10264 and patchworkandcraft.com.au popped up. I'd never heard of them so clicked to see what they had. They have listed as available on clearance both the Corner Garage and Diner for $135 each. I thought I'd hit the jackpot!
Of course it seems too good to be true so I did a bit of looking and found the domain had expired 31 July and it's certificates are invalid. I don't know if it is just a zombie site or scammers have taken the domain and put up a copy of it. It loads really slow. It has never popped up in my searches before and thought it odd so just letting people know that may check here for info.

    Probably the original owners of the domain let it expire and some scammer bought it up instead

    This is their old Pinterest and as you can see not even closely related in what they sold

    The address they give is a figurine shop called Japan toys. Their email address is a Gmail address. Fake as.

    I've just submitted a scamwatch report. I don't know if it will result in the website being pulled as I can't find any other way to report a scam .com.au site. I've now done all I can for my fellow ozbargainers.
