Two crooks (alleged) were busted for selling Titleist ProV1 golf balls for cheap, but never delivering the product.  They also would set up accounts, purchase golf balls from shops and never pay for them. Total scammed was around $400,000.

ProV1’s aren’t cheap.  If some company says they can sell you a brand new dozen of them for $25, back away from your wallet.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
