you never really know...I mean my dad had an online drop shipping store thing

Drop shipping is a supply chain management technique in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock, but instead transfers customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer. As in all retail businesses, the retailers make their profit on the difference between the wholesale and retail price.
BUT that only applies to the location thing. As everyone has said about the price - if it's too good to be true..then it isn't true :|

The warehouse could be elsewhere.

But I definitely would not count on it.
Yes but that doesn't account for Google's Street View showing the Lot that is empty being the address. How can a empty lot be a place of business.

Unless heaven forbid that Google Street View is wrong and the Bing Maps is right.

Sorry had to say it.

While it is likely that it could be run out of a house. For some reason i just dont think so.:freak:
