I saw that there were some bewares, but like I said, I'm new, and I wasn't sure if this was anything I should be concerned with as many large companies are falsely accused on a regular basis. Thank you very much for the input.

Lol, not scammed till I sign something. I've seen all I need to see. When I queried these guys I was already suspicious, but this was around 4:00am after I had queried multiple agencies and I didn't do much in terms of research other than check their website.
