So, while in the deep dark depths of the internet. I came across some website that sells a lot of stuff from China. NOW I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO SAY! BUT! My friend bought an "arctic S3 Laser" on the site, for half price of what the actual site sells it for. It's the real thing, same 1w burning power, everything...Well I found a Hasselblad H4D-50 for $900. It's fake right? It has to be fake...it's fake, or broken. Even broken that's too cheap lol. I'm tempted to just take a gamble. Someone talk me out of it please lol. The website only takes payment after you receive the item and agree that it is in fact as described. Technically all I could lose is the shipping back....but it's fake....It says used, restored by manufacturer, full working condition...but it has to be fake lmao

They refund the money! I tried buying something dumb on the site, and if they didnt send it after 5 days I got a refund. 5 days later the loser didnt send it, so I got my $12 back. I'm not going to actually risk $900 on a has-to-be falsehood of an H4d-50. But I might know someone who's dumb enough to try...

Hey, I know where you can get an absolutely genuine Hasselblad in primo condition absolutely free! All you have to do is go get it!

It's at Tranquility Base, located at 0°41'15"N, 23°26'00"E, on the moon.

It's been outside for 40 years, but no oxygen means no rust, right?

Absolutely right. Rust is, after all, iron oxide, which requires oxygen.

I know people who have tried to order big ticket items through Alibaba. Item just never shows up.

That's the only reason I even considered it for a second. I have gotten some things from this site, and when you get it, you check off on your profile that you got it. Then the funds clear for the seller. Until then, it is just held. I ordered something dumb a few weeks ago, never showed up, they refunded my money lol
