I have seen multiple people being scammed by "gaming" pcs that feature a GT 710 / 1GB / DDR3.
Usually, the price is above 500$.
So, how common are GT 710 scams?

They're only a scam if they're advertised as something else. You can always find "Gaming" computers with low-end graphic cards that are barely capable of gaming. Consumer Ignorance is not a crime.

relatively although on known large sites like amazon they can quickly dis-appear because of all of the negative reviews that say that they can barely play any games, which is expected from a GT 710. although if you do see one just leave loads of negative reviews which then means that less people will get scammed by it.

Don't confuse "scams" with "marketing". A scam would be selling you something then not actually delivering it, or sending you something else that's cheaper or selling a fake product with lower specs like saying it's a 970 card but using a fake BIOS on a weaker card.

Look at all the eBay sales for "Rare Vintage Collectible" when they are just selling some old thing without much value. If you fall for it and buy it without finding out exactly what you are buying that is as much the fault of the buyer as the seller for being less than fully honest. Try selling an old baseball card by listing it "old cardboard rectangle with some colors printed on it".
 
Today, everyone wants to get rich by being shady. Integrity be damned.

Bait and switch is a real scam. But the more closely (but not technically illegal) is the marketing versus reality scam--this is as common as the birth of advertising as companies are continuously promising things that do not match the reality of their products. This used to be considered false advertising. But enforcement of this went away along with the china dumping fakes in the domestic market being illegal, and undocumented workers working for cash being illegal. The whole system is going straight to h....

The closely related 'shady' is the tos scam where you are promised one thing, but agree to a 14-20 page contract that says something different than what you were promised. When you bring this up the answer is--you should have read what you were signing stupid! NEVER EVER EVER sign a legal document without thoroughly reading it and understanding it. It could say this person can use your bank account for his porn expenses and if you sign it, it's legal.
