An ad popped up today online from a company based in Wistow, SA (South Australia?) called musicdrum. They are offering a Cecilio alto sax with everything that one could want for $99 US. It gets better as a silver "intermediate to advanced" sax is on sale for $89 US.
What do you folks know of this company?

Just popped up; 75% off everything; contact email is generic gmail; fractured English descriptions; “guarantees return for free within 7 days after delivery if the products have quality problems. Due to its own reasons, the customer must bear the refund processing fee and return logistics fee”.

Seems legit.

I'm guessing that a very real and legit company had their identity hacked briefly. After my first post, I went back and could not find the ad anywhere, although I did find a link to the company. It's my hope that it was shut down quickly.
Our company's ceo had emails going out with his name to us asking us to click a link, etc. and we've gone through internet security training to help recognize things like this. They're getting more slick by the day!

That's about what a Cecilio is truly worth, so it seems reasonable to me....

Looking at Google Maps, the address of lot 202 appears to be, at best, an empty lot. Wistow's population is around 290. I found this image online with the caption "this is the one and only Wistow shop."
