Well…supposedly, if you buy stuff from Ebay with paypal you have some protection…also use credit card on the paypal option to get them involved if needed.
If you paid for more than $800 bucks for an L3+ you paid too much…I paid $823 last friday and got mine on this last monday…also shipping to usa and psu etc made it almost exactly $1,000 a unit.
I am only buying mine due to (with state and fed taxes and a cushion) 50% of my mining set aside to IRS and
taxes etc and the 25% equip deduction of taxes I will owe (real dollars) at the end of the year
thus my risk on the $823 L3+ on the bitmain site last weeks was $250 after electric
barely worth it
if you only get the $250 equip deduction off usa taxes…your odds are worse.if not mining income
and my trick
so be aware…there is a big dump by bitmain of scrypt-pow equipment …gonna be ugly
(only spend what you can afford to lose)
