Editorial: Gaming / Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord /Telegram We know that the Internet offers many shopping options and even when there are safe sites, there are always people looking to take advantage of it to get money. Now that cryptocurrencies have gone down, the GPU shortage is starting to ease and this has prompted some gamers to take that step they needed to join the ranks of the PC Master Race. If we put these 2 aspects together, we have a bad combination and a player from Brazil experienced it by getting something other than his coveted graphics card.

Buying a GPU turned out to be a scam
A VideoCardz report shared the case of a Brazilian PC gamer who was scammed by third parties in an Amazon sale. The goal of this gamer was to get an Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti motivated by the availability that has increased as a result of the collapse of cryptocurrencies. It was then that during the Prime Day sales, Brazilian gamer Mauricio Takeda found the GPU he had wanted and bought it for $2,637 USD. However, the operation was carried out with a third party, the days passed and the shipment did not arrive. When contacting the seller, the review process was initiated and their response was meaningless messages, however, days later the package arrived.

The packaging looked beautiful, but there was sand inside, not an RTX 3090
Unfortunately, although the package was sealed and the cover gave the impression that the RTX 3090 Ti was ready to be presented to its new owner, he opened the package and realized that inside there were containers with sand, what was necessary to justify the weight that the product should have in real conditions. When filing his claim, Mauricio Takeda received another email with a link supposedly to process the case and find a solution, but when he entered it, the trace of the purchase and even the seller’s user account were erased.

This led this PC player to file a lawsuit in a Brazilian court causing so much noise nationwide that Amazon had no choice but to resolve the problem, although there is still no favorable conclusion for this player who was scammed. So, whenever you make a purchase online, remember that the offers are good, but if they are exaggeratedly attractive and come from third parties, it is sure to be a scam. That is why we invite you to always verify sellers and shipping, especially if it is third parties, reviewing their reputation and ratings. Still here at WTTSpod.
