Hey lads.
The Experience i got after buying a new 1080 from amazon.

so i purchased a NEW msi gtx 1080 Armor while My Mom was on us for work.
After she got the box from amazon she saw the box looks kinda open. but unlucky me i didn't asked her to to take picture of the card, after she Arrived home i was extremely hyped to get my new 1080

The card that i bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GXOWUDQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The card i got [used]: https://www.amazon.com/MSI-R9-390-GAMING-8G/dp/B00ZPOAYG6/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1508884763&sr=1-2&keywords=r9+390


but unfortunately i got a Used MSI R9 390 at a gtx 1080 Package.
i was pretty angry at this moment so i went to ask amazon live chat whats going on,

Good and bad news amazon would provide a full refund after a return.
but cannot provide a replacement,
which means i would have to reorder the Graphic card to my country with fees and shipping.
for more than 110$ than the actual price.

Pretty upsetting but i'm glad i would get a full refund.
does amazon even checking their returns before putting them back as "New"

What do you guys think about that?

Sorry for any grammars mistakes and for my english. not my first language.

I think Amazon is doing the right thing. They can't make good on the scams every one who sells through Amazon might try to do. Al they can do is un-do the deal and leave it to you to make any new deal you want. Perfectly fair.

Its fair and i will get my money back so that what matter after all ,i'm just wondering why they don't check the returns before reselling it as new. i bought the card from amazon. not a third party.

They probably did check it but the person doing the checking goofed. Not everyone can tell on sight the difference between one video card and another. A return-processor is likely not going to be selected for the PC/technical acumen.
 


Is that the actual listing you purchased it from? If so, it is indeed a 3rd party "Sold by STARLIT PARTNER".
