Anyone heard of the publisher "Faces of Mars"?

Has anyone heard of a publisher called Faces of Mars? They have contacted me about publishing one of my apps and I'd like to know if anyone has experience with them.

They can't be real. It must be some kind of scam, with a website like that. They say they have offices in Mexico and Germany yet don't have any money to spend on a decent website. And no examples of any games they have dealt with. It just doesn't add up.

forget the web site ... search for the results in the app charts. are they with a app in the top 300 of any category ... does this app have gamer reviews?

if the answer is no and no ... no doubt, don't even bother to answe the mail ...

besides, if you don't have amazing viral content on the web, publishers will wait for you to contact them ...

That would take me serious effort to make a site that bad. Are they stuck in 1999?
