Holy, if that is real that's a deal of a lifetime! I would call but just be cautious and make sure you aren't scammed. Don't give them any money unless you see the bird and have it in your possesion if you choose to get it, lol.

If it isn't a scam wow, but it just seems too good to be true. Just be careful Daisy.

Was it a number can't be recognised?

Try googling the number and see if it brings anything up, scams normally do.

I wont bother with it. I can almost guarantee its a mistake or its a scam. There's loads of stuff like that on birdtrader sadly. I really wish it was. I'd of thrown my self at him/her!
