A deceptive company that said it is out of stock but can still see it on his website.
Helpful Report
Due to the unprecedented demand for these products, we are out of stock. Unfortunately there is a backlog of orders to process which is not accurately reflected on our website. I believe one of our Customer Representatives has already been in contact to advise you of this. I hope this clarifies the situation for you.
Very good speed of order.
