Ummm a used Weather King Banjo Head removed from a Gibson Banjo for 82.68, and a Recording King RK20 for 71.68? Could there possibly something not right?

I think the best deal of the summer on that site is the 24' by 12' steel framed swimming pool for $88.92. Free shipping.

There's thousands of sites like this, you can find them if you Google "buy banjo" and then go past the first couple pages of results. They exist for almost all products too.

I wrote them about one of the banjos, and received a response back that it would ship from China by USPS. I wrote back to ask them if I could purchase it using an escrow account, with the money paid out of escrow once the item is received as advertised. No word back yet, but if they accept that offer, I'm going to buy one of those cheap banjos, then maybe take a look at that cheap swimming pool.

It is probably a website in China, US laws mean nothing to them.

Registered in Iceland, through a registration company also in Iceland. There are multiple cases of fraud with the websites and companies registered there through namecheap.com.  Looking at the headers of the email I got, I can see that they have hidden themselves pretty well though the use of the Outlook servers and various stages and protections an email goes through there.

You must have been on the site for quite a while. I scrolled through the first 12 pages under Farm Equipment looking for that one. However, I do admit that I have used milkers on cattle in my younger years. I'm not sure if this is the same thing. We milked our cows by hand but there were plenty of dairy farms around where I grew up and they all used milkers.

I went through different pages on the site and noticed that all the prices fall within the same range, no matter what the product is. Everything is somewhere bewteen $70 and $85. Does that seem strange to anyone else?

Hi, the electric cattle milker was on a side ad, I didn’t look far at all. Maybe they mix up their ads on occasion. It just hit my funny bone.

I actually milked goats one summer when I 20. I got room and board at a small farm, while volunteering at a grammar school. It was a hot stinky job, but I had lots of fun.

I got a pretty aggressive guy that respnded to my "wanted ad" for a Burlile tone ring. He said he had one to sell for $230.00. Messaged me back 4 times pushing for the money. My personal best scam story. Well I hope to heck is was a scammer.
