    If you look at what the seller is called it will reveal some more information.

    It is a type of scam run on Amazon Marketplace, the way it works is they rely on you being excited about the potential deal you will get and contact them, they will take down your payment information and generate a seemingly valid looking Amazon Marketplace Invoice so you don't panic immediately and cancel the payment. During this time they get their money, sure you will get a refund from Amazon or your CC provider, but the scammers still get to keep the money they obtained from you and that is the purpose of their scam.

    Yeah fair enough, was just wondering how they managed to get a load of positive reviews if they are scammers?

    it is suspicious :\
    this is one questions posted in the page and answered by "Coryell Solutions"


    "There is a problem with other sellers (who have hacked into existing accounts) posting on this page, and advertising for impossible low prices, and then when the customer orders, they ask that the customer transfer money to an outside bank account - if the customer does not, they just cancel the order. Amazon kicks these sellers off after a few hours, however they keep coming back with seemingly limitless new hacked seller accounts and doing the same thing. I am very sorry for the confusion and inconvenience"

    I wouldn't try my luck with this deal

    Yea, I remember months ago about posting how on ebay china members with no feedback would post Razer Blade Stealths, Razer Blade's, Razer Blade Pros and Razer Cores for under $50. I posted about it and it was all a scam

    That is actually a bit different of a scam, happens on Amazon too. They create tons of listings on new accounts and tell the buyers that shipping is delayed for a while, by the time they get caught about a month or so passes and they have scammed a lot of people and withdrawn a fair bit of money.

    True but on ebay as soon as someone bought all the things they had listed they deleted the account, but makes no sense because they had to connect there paypal to ebay... So when they did it to me (I just bought it to test it out with ebay's 100% money back) and I still got my refund lol

    Indeed, it is just a minor disadvantage to the user. But, they aren't really scamming the user, they are scamming the Ebay/Amazon system since the companies refund you the money from their own pocket, ergo you the end-user do not carry a loss, the company however does along with the scammers also getting their money.

    This is me as well. I can't imagine life without Amazon, especially since I live 30 minutes from a very large fulfillment center. I get everything exceptionally fast, granted that doesn't matter very often since my Prime gets me free two-day shipping all the time anyway. lol

    As for the specific item in question: I also noticed that it says it was an item imported from the USA (so they spent USD for the purchase) and it's now being resold using using GBP. There is going to be somewhat of a difference in the conversion rate (GBP being worth more than USD) which could account for a slight reduction in the appearance of the cost.

    Mind you, I'm not saying that it's not a scam, but just something to toss out there when seeing listings that involve two different currencies.

    Even if it is a legit sale then for that price its much more likely that its false advertising of an older version of the blade. You really have to watch out on Amazon. It doesnt help that razer names all their systems the same each year.

    Just to be sure I'd always get my laptop directly from the manufacturer. Especially with the bad version system Razer has :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    I do wonder how these amazon deals remain online for so long.
