Just ordered a 15" LCD from this site.(LINK)

I might get myself a smaller one of them to test with.

Why? There are only two prices, ($10 & $21) and you can get a 15" for the price of a 7". Plus you don't have to use the screen if you want a smaller image...

Well best of luck with that - let us know if you get it safely or if they steal all your money smiley-grin
How did you pay for it?

Because 15" is much too large - I'd much rather have a 7".

Here's one: http://www.alibaba.com/product-free/113206198/DTV_Shredder_Military_Skateboard.html

He's emailing people asking for deposits on it too but BPG werks is the only manufacturer of the shredder and the pics there are simply stolen from the BPG website.

There are a number of scammers around but not normally for things quite as petty as a single item such as that and normally not involving paypal as paypal gives the buyer something to hide behind if things go wrong.

I noticed that there seem to be two versions, at least of the 3.5" display that I was looking at:

Model Number: DMT32240T035_01WN
Series: Economic Type
price:  $10.53

Model Number: DMT32240S035_01WT
Series: Advanced Type
price:  $54.74


But as I looked over the specs side by side, I couldn't see what the difference is.  Anyone else notice this and figure out what the difference is?

They might be selling 'em off cheap cuz it's 4:3 and not 16:9.

Bad run with dead pixels maybe?

The WT has touch, the WN doesn't but as gerg says, from my reading I did before, I think the advanced one is guaranteed to have no dead pixels - the economy one can have some and still be acceptable.

found the WHOLE story out today in emailhere is the start of the email I received:

Quote
Glad to receive your order.
 
This is ___________ from __________ technology company.
The datasheet and the quotation for 15'' display are attached. Please check them.
 
Please note that the price on our webstore is not true. Because it's our company rule that the price can't be showed on the webstore. Hope you can understand us.
So If you like to receive the 15'' sample,  please make up the difference of the price. (385 - 21=USD 364)
After receiving the difference, we would deliver the 15'' sample to you by express ASAP. (The shipping is free.)


HOWEVER THIS IS NOT A SCAM!!!
Before anyone starts considering this a scam READ THE FOLLOWING!!!

Quote
If you don't like that, we can send one free 3.5'' free sample to you for evaluation firstly, and then you can consider whether you need to purchase the 15'' sample.

Also read this:

Quote
If you don't mind, please let me know the introduction of your new project or the technology requirement of your product.
So maybe I can supple some good suggestions for you on my experience.
 
If you have any query about our display, please don't hesitate to contact us.
 
Best regards,
 
// Here was where his/her name was... (not given in this fourm)

// Here WAS where his/her contact info was...
// However I thought it would be best if I just relaeased what forms of info he/she gave.
  •  Company name:__________
  •  Link to homepage:________
  •  FULL Telephone#:_________ ((NOTE: With everything you can find in a Phone#))
  •  FULL Fax#:______________ ((NOTE: With everything you can find in a Fax#))
  •  Verified E-mail:___________ ((NOTE: Note the same as the sender as the email I copied 98% of the info from then pasted in this reply))

All in all, I have yet to see any form of scam(s) in this transaction so far... Right???
I guess I was right in that this $21.05USD+FreeShipping 15" LCD is too good to be true.

Still a 3.5" Serial LCD is pretty good for $21.05USD and free shipping?

Surely you ask for your money back now - then they send you a free 3.5" screen for evaluation.

They are breaking paypal rules by advertising a product not at the correct price.

That is a scam - however much they have said afterwards, they've tried to draw you into purchasing the product and taken your money on agreement of purchasing the product but then they have said they can't sell it to you for that price.

I'd go mental on their ass.

Ask for your money back now and see what they say.
