Insanely cheap!

I am not interested in a bird this size, but I am always surfing around the internet and am a little freaked out by how inexpensive his Hyacinth is. Is it likely the bird has really bad habits, that the seller just doesn't know what they have, or do you usually assume something like this is a scam?

I'd say that's a scam. I see a lot like that, especially Hyacinths. No way would anyone in their right mind sell a PAIR for $400.

Yeah, I think I've seen that ad before... I'd say scam too, but if I lived nearby, I'd go check it out in person... Wouldn't be able to help myself! I'd bring Gareth tho, just in case

that has GOT to be a scam. Usually I see pairs of breeders for like $14,000-$20,000 not $400. One for $400 would be a matter of me going WHAAAAT!? haha!
