Is this GPU deal real

Go to solution Solved by Herman Mcpootis,

$130 for a $700 card should be an obvious red flag, nobody's gonna cut the prices down that much to sell it.

It's a scam.

If something seems too good to be true, then it probably is.

The fact that there selling more than 10 at this price should be a pretty good giveaway

My life

Yeah, it's shady AF that they have a lot of these for such a low price.
If it was an auction, with only 1 card and starting at that price, I'd get it, but more than 10 as a Buy It Now? Nope.

Honestly, I've reported it as potentially fraudulent(Listing Practice > Fraudulent listing activities > You suspect that a listing is fraudulent), wouldn't surprise me if whoever own that ebay account got hacked and now someone tried to make a quick buck off it.

Just looked and got a "page not found" error.  Must have been pulled because it was a scam.

The listing has since been pulled by eBay.
Nice to see they're actually doing something about these scams and fake GPUs, I've reported at least 50 in the last few months to eBay, but unfortunately they pop back up on different accounts pretty much as soon as they're gone.
