It's cheaper than a new battery for my old handheld!

That seller looks fraudulent to me. Too many red flags.

Yes, the closer you look the stranger it gets.

Pretty much says it all!

I always dreamed of getting a case of cheap 30 dollar handhelds and tossing them into the cockpits of sailboats (and occasional power) on the ICW like the Johnny Appleseed of better communications.

Yep. I think it's definitely fraudulent.

They are out of Istanbul Turkey: Thecostprice.com - Thecostprice | Website

More information: thecostprice.com at WI. Cost Price

I would not give them a credit card number or PayPal, etc.
