I'm looking to buy a Rift and I found this really great deal on eBay. Probably a scam though. But maybe not

    I would be skeptical. While China does make/ship some very inexpensive things (model helicopters, drones, etc) they are usually things made in Chine. I don't think Oculus products are made in China.  And $87 for a new Oculus Rift CV1, while not the Rift-S (newer model than CV1) still seems somewhat inexpensive.

    The Go is, it's made by Xiaomi. The others, no idea.

    Sounds like something out of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," if you take away the Oculus Rift. Maybe it's a warning not to complain about the Oculus Rift once you've purchased it.

    I guess it was a scam, because the listing was pulled lol. I'm glad I didn't buy it.
