Looking at the website, I'm guessing the spammer is just collecting
credit card numbers. It's basically an advertising blurb claiming to
do impossible things in software, followed by an insecure form asking
for your address and credit card number.

I plugged in bogus data, including a credit card number without enough
digits, and it claimed a successful order.
