Don’t get too excited, this smacks of the same people running the discounttools scam.

Notice a familiar format? This just from a few minutes going to random cities and typing in “Delta” for search. Nice to see them giving Grizzly some face time as well.

The deals are too good to be true Wayne. I emailed back on one, and got a response that the actual item was in Indiana. I then said “oh, good, I am making a business trip to Indiana in two days. Where can it be seen?” Then got a reply saying that they had made a mistake, it was actually in Idaho.

It’s a common scam. You pay them, you get nothing in return.

I saw that ads too. If I don’t have a table saw already, I might have emailed the poster. However, I’ll only part with my money when the item is seen in person and a deal struck. There are just too many dishonest people on the internet.
