No one's mad, but most of us here are pretty quick to jump on posts like this so we can warn others away from disreputable dealers like the one you happened across. I think we all recognize your intentions were good, but wanted to make sure others were aware of the company's reputation.

I wonder what the catch is with this one. I tried calling thier 800 number which shows thier buisness hours Mon.-Thurs. 9:30am-11:00pm. I called about 9pm central time and they were closed. This price is too good to be true, I am going to keep calling till I find out what the catch is and report back on this thread.
