They are not exactly lying, but they are twisting the truth as much as one possibly can.
Prices are borderline outrages for semi legit pieces but for their lineup they are flat out ridiculous.
Terrible redials being sold as "professionally restored", frankens, replacement crowns and hands. You'll find the whole inventory of terrible deals over there.

well done certainly these are some dishonest people...terrible
