No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

Also ...

Ebay.

Any of the many hobby and professional electronic component suppliers.

Google is your friend.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Um... Amazon has a bunch of nice fake arduinos that usually work well at a low price. Here's the ones I bought, and they worked out of the box great.

I like cooking children and Arduinos

As far as I can see they are clones. I don't think it is fair to call them fakes. At least in my mind "fake" implies illegality or, at best, cheating. Making clone Arduinos is perfectly legal and respectable - the designs for the hardware are OpenSource.

Buying from the Arduino store, at least buying one, helps pay for this forum and IDE improvements.

That's what I meant. Thanks for the correction.

Very good point, but on a budget amazon is as great place.

I agree with the idea of supporting Arduino development but  genuine Arduino boards can be bought from many suppliers, not just from the Arduino store
