How do you know if a website is a legitimate vendor/seller and not a scam?

I am contemplating making a 3000 dollar purchase online, for a product I cannot get in my location. Are there any ways to detect if a website is legit? Please, serious answers only.

    I would recommend googling for the domain name and have a look into the link that come up especially forums. Most people that get scammed will report in a forum. Also there is always the possibility to dispute the credit card bill, depending on how your credit card company/bank is dealing with disputes it can be very easy.

    I personally distrust sites that have no “contact us” where you can call them up.
