the phone has "145" which is obviously not a valid area code and comes up for Syria as a country code. the address in NY NY does not exist. draw your own conclusions lol

I personally don't have an issue buying refurbished, AS LONG AS you know the condition the unit is in, and comes with a warranty.

Lots of times refurbished products are just open box/returned units that have seen little to no use, where they should be tested either at the factory or vendor extensively to ensure quality of product.

Right. Neither do I.
But you also have to evaluate the seller. Refurb direct from Dell? No prob. Amazon, Newegg? No prob.

" laptops that cost 200$"....real or scam?

For example.....that particular desktop system - $240, worldwide shipping.
i7-7700k - $290 at Amazon
MSI Z270 Gaming motherboard
MSI GTX 1080 8GB GPU - $500+ https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GTX-1080-GAMING-8G/dp/B01GLYD7MG

Just the CPU OR the GPU, on their own, sells for more than $240.


So....tell us how this is NOT a scam?
Unknown site, with no history, selling stuff for pennies on the dollar.
Even reddit knows it is a scam
