Default Vacuum tube seller - Half Price Tubes

There's an outfit in Dallas, Texas called HALF PRICE TUBES. They say they sell their vacuum tubes for half their listed price.
Anyone know about them or ordered from them ?

This link points to part of their price list, they say their selling price would be half of those.

That's an... interesting marketing gimmick.

Most prices are grossly inflated. Take a look at other sellers before wasting your money!

This is not a regular business. They bought an "estate lot" of old tubes and are unloading them.
Not tested, not guaranteed, not necessarily even unused.

Interesting points. Just checking to see if anyone knew about them.
I didn't intend just to go ahead and order anything from them as I think it
looks like a scam.
