The bit is to tell you that they are deployed in the military, or somehow otherwise away. Lured by an incredible deal to make a %deposit on it. No intent on delivery so they will accept whatever you offer. Even $5. Once I engaged in conversation with a scammer, made and agreement and sent it to the state police internet fraud department. The crime is ,called theft by deception.
