 I'm not positive, but I thought some where you posted this video maybe last year when you were discussing mice or something with Sandman.

Yeah.  Refurbished products have always been questionable at best.  It's a misleading title that's heavily abused.

 Some are probably even reputable. but I don't think it is really regulated. Any business that isn't closely regulated, there's always people who will take advantage of that.

Yeah, quite true in fact.  This also falls in the same category as "certified pre-owned" cars.  Just call it what it is, used.  But we won't mention the most likely abused part.  lol

I came across this youtuber that decided to do a informative used parts PC build and the trials that you could face buying used PC parts.  It's a good watch.

 That's why I stick to local ads. Better to check the parts out in person. Nothing to stop a scammer from lying to you over the internet.
