I've seen a few people say they have TRIED to buy from them. Basically what happens is after you order from them online, someone from East Coast calls you and tries to get you to upgrade to express shipping which is $189. When some people refused to upgrade they cancel the order. Others have said that it will just sit in processing for 2 or 3 months without shipping and they have to call frequently to see why.
I've seen others say that they will try and tell you that the TV you ordered for that low price is actually a commercial version of the TV with an 8bit panel, made in Korea, and if you want the USA model, like ones sold in Best Buy, it will be X amount more money, and that it will have a 10bit panel, and is made in Mexico.
That last scam I have verified is BS. According to LG, they do not make commercial equivalents of their B, C, E, G lines, and their commercial panels do not share the same model numbers. Most importantly, LG said that they do not make any OLED that isn't a 10bit panel. The manufacturing plant is in Mexico, so that's the only thing they said that was true.
I've also seen 1 or 2 posters say that they did get their TV from East Coast, but that it took a 2 or 3 months to actually get it.
In a nutshell, you may get lucky and have them actually ship you a TV for the price that they actually quoted on the site, but most likely the order won't go through unless you pay more. If you do get lucky and receive the TV, LG will honor warranties on TVs even from them.
Comes down to if you feel lucky, pretty much. I don't think you will get your money stolen, but it will probably just be a waste of time more than anything.
