Free gaming mouse offer, is this a scam?

Recommended Posts

Those websites say it's free, but charge you an arm and a leg for shipping- very much not free. Not sure about this one though.

The sketchy part about it to me is there's no brand name for the mouse? It just says "gaming mouse". Probably not going to work as well as advertised.

Somebody said it earlier, they'll charge you almost as much as the product costs for shipping, but that parts usually not a scam.

But for $35 for a gaming mouse you're better off picking one up literally anywhere.


DELETE! DELETE!

PSU Tier List - I keep forgetting where this is so I'm going to leave it here.

I bought better mice from China, that cost be 50cent incl. Shipping.

 

To be honest, for 50cent the mouse rocks. It works, and is even rubberized on the palm an the bottom.

So yes, very damn cheap mice don't have to be Scam, but this one you posted isn't worth it.

Here is a example on the German ebay https://www.ebay.de/p/?iid=131753056557&&&chn=ps

 

Most of the Sellers do this to get many 5* Reviews, and seem more trustworthy when it's about expensive stuff like phones..

I saw a paypal logo there, so if payment can be done that way, the purchase can be contested and money retrieved. in theory

I'm sure it's a legit website, but it's a Chinese knockoff that'll break after a few months.

 

No R&D costs (copy), limited marketing costs, no warranty service, cheap materials. Yes it can boil down to a mouse that costs 5$ to produce and market.
