lol! Fonejacker springs to mind with a guy sitting in a box asking for
"monies Sir"...I wouldn't touch this with a barge pole! For the sake
of a few extra quid, you'd be better off sticking with a known
brand/seller. Western Union do not give back money for buyer/seller
mistakes like Paypal do - once the money's transferred that's it, no
bank to back you up (Fraud Prevention Team)
60% off is usually the "closing down clearance" type sale, but I don't
know any retailer that would hike the prices back up after a week if
they're selling their stock off... the mind boggles on this one...

If you want a cheap monitor, you can get a 21.6" TV from Tesco now for
£99, or maybe it was £119, and it can double as a monitor with the VGA
ports :) Failing that you could try Maplin, SVP or eBay for some
bargains...or even Freecycle/Freegle if you're not fussed about
picking up second-hand stuff from strangers houses for free ;)

Just a few suggestions :)
