I'm looking to buy a BMX bike mainly for getting to school and for joy riding, I'm not hardcore about tricks but I'd like a bike that's more or less money's worth.
I'm from the UK, I was looking at bikes on ebay and came across a Scorpion Malign 20" being sold brand new for £122.95 and a Scorpion Wrench 20" for a similar price, I couldn't find many reviews but I like the aesthetics of the bikes so I'm wondering if anybody with bike experience could lend me a hand, are the bikes okay?
It's my first time buying a bike online, I can't really illustrate the size of the bike in my mind since I can't physically see it, but for reference I'm 5'8 and around 135lbs.

Thanks.

EDIT:
These are the links to the bikes I was talking about.

If I were you I'd look for a bike with these specs. .
8.5-10 x 28.5-30 handlebars
21+in frame
Fully sealed hubs
Linear straight cable brakes
Dualpinch bolt stem
3pc cranks
Fat, padded seat
Good gear ratio, maybe 27/9
Atleast 90psi tires 20x2.25+
Double wall rims

This should all prove to make the best luxury/transportation bmx bike.

2014 Fit Stay Strong looks legit for this purpose. $400 USD.
