Default I just bought 3 x 1 TB external WDs....

and was wondering how this can't be a scam. I only ordered because of the paypal guarantee.
they even come with USB3, but how can this guy make a profit at $19.16CDN each + free shipping?
thoughts?

Wow. The guy has a lot of feedback, all of which is positive. That is just ridiculously cheap.

Brokerage is determined on how much he paid. If the shipper puts he paid $20, then he will only pay taxes on $20. So like a couple of bucks. I may end up buying one to see if it is legit.
