consoleoflife.com is a scam

Post by DukeofNuke »

Just FYI.
Don't go there to buy a new console
https://consoleoflife.com/product-category/consoles/

My wife borrowed my card to try to buy a PS5 for the grandkids.
Within a week, on a single day I got almost $500 in fraudulent charges from all across the country; Massachusetts to California, Minnesota to Florida; all in about $50 individual purchases.
The card issuer has got it all straightened out now, but of course they canceled the card and I havent gotten a replacement yet. So, my Christmas shopping is totally FU'd.

There is nothing good about them on the BBB site, and I filed a complaint with the FBI.

So, I just did a preview to make sure the link worked, and I get a 522 error; so it looks like it has been taken down. A Google search found lots of reviews, but they all seem to be the same thing on different URLs.
A scam for sure.

Crap.

Yeah, those things were sold out immediately - just gotta assume it will be a summer '21 purchase.
