I want these ~ $100 1080ti to be true but that would be too good


#1

Given that people are giving up on the mining thing it makes me want to believe this is true, some desperate sell-off? The eBay user seems legit but has mostly been selling glowing dog collars or something so maybe a hacked account?

Almost definitely a scam judging by the sub-$100 consoles and super cheap gaming laptop they also have listed.


#3

I wouldn’t touch that deal with a 30 foot pole.

My guess is a hacked account. There have been reports of people buying supposedly new graphics cards from sketchy sellers, only to get some crappy card with a v-bios hack.

More info on GPU scams

I’ve seen but that’s an entirely different scam… almost at the level of AMD and Nvidia when they re-brand/release some products under new names. In this case its more likely a matter of no gpu being sent out.

Not sure that would work as an eBay scam. eBay/Paypal is so hardcore on the buyers side (even when the buyer is the one scamming) that the money would be refunded every time.


#7

Uh it says in the ad he is selling just the box. So you are getting an empty box for $50.


#8

Something really strange happened to the URLs, it’s either nothing or an entirely different item and seller now.
