People, people, please get an education and learn how to spell.
Your spelling only shows your intellect as less than the size of a
pea. We are all taught spelling in the same manner. If you want
people to take you more seriously, USE SPELL CHECK!
My other response to this is, you seen the "free signs" as well
and let your guard down. You figured it was your only way to get a
bird. Well, guess what, you were scammed. Guess you should have
sent the $260., probably wouldn't have been out that much money
then, just NO BIRDS either way.
No excuse for stupidity, Sorry.
