    Title states "New", but item is actually "Used". Store front was just opened with a name of "sdjkjsdfk" and almost all reviews are as a buyer and are almost all a year old. Probably hacked account, spam selling items that don't exist.

    In for 1. Subscribing to the thread so I am reminded when I forget about this purchase. Getting nothing will be easy to handle the refund, hard part will be getting refunded if they send something counterfeit or not-equivalent.

    How does this work for people who have been through this before, do I just wait for the charge to drop off or do I need to contact ebay or paypal?

    Yeah just more scams. I'm still amazed the GPU ones keep on trucking. Sure buddy, he's really going to sell you a 1080ti for $150.
