Search for Abes of Maine on here and you'll find that it has a reputation now of being a bait and switch site.

They are a bait and switch company, literally listed as a text book example of an online scammer: https://www.nbcnews.com/technolog...ams-742267

LG has expressly not authorized them to sell their TVs, and in this case they is good reason for that: and they are #1 on the list.

Sorry bud (that is, if you aren't an Abe's shill yourself). Cheers.

thanks for the input.

Fake

The original Abes of Maine went bankrupt. Someone bought the name and now operates a bait & switch operation.

Remember, good reviews can easily be faked.

They aren't #1 on the list. They are first because it's listed alphabetically.

They are #1 on the list. They can't be any other number on that list, because they are first on that list. If they are first on that list, which they indeed are, they are #1 on that list. They are therefore, in fact, #1 on that list.

I pointed out their place on that list so people can find it easily.

Their place on that list is #1.

There should be a sticky thread in the TV forum that says not to post "deals" from Abe's. Or perhaps SD could add some sort of auto filter to alert an OP that Abe's is not an honest seller.
