I "purchased" a 75 buck 128gb oculus quest, on this website. I wanna know if its fake or if i got scammed. I saved up 250 bucks so far for an oculus, then i saw this website. I got way too excited, the website is called www.ocuwuve.com
and please let me know if its fake or not, thank you.

It's not only a fake site (that was registered 3 days ago by a chinese company), but it's infected with malware. I'd advise doing a virus scan of your computer.

If you paid with PayPal you could start a dispute and they may be able to get you a refund.

If it was a credit card (or debit card from Visa or similar) then a charge back can be done. I was able to get $3175au back with a charge back when I bought a laptop but the company went bankrupt while I waited for them to ship.
But it's not a very secret method, you have to fill out forms with your bank.

I'd advise to let you dad know what's happened, he may not like it but he'll be greatful you told him. More importantly, if it was his payment method that was used, he'll be the best person to deal with it and get the refund.

Yep, especially if it was paid for by credit card, that means they know your number and details now. So more could happen. Plus a virus scan really should be done.
So it might be doing more harm than just a $75 bill if things aren't stopped with the bank.
