I have been seeing a lot of ads on YouTube for the website Wish.com lately and it made me wonder: Is it still a scam?

I bought a $48 GTX 1050 ti, and there is something a bit dodgy about it.

Here is the video where Phil fixes a similar fake GPU: https://ai-tube.com/videoai/En0G0w5XbNp

That's a nice t-shirt.
Wish is only a scam if you let it be. You HAVE to read the reviews and be smart about what you're getting.
I actually got a wish ad under this video

I love wish for led light pods, bulk zipties, and other small items. However I would never buy pc components or clothes from them.

I would be getting my money back from wish for sure and keep the product that's what I do if they scam me thats whats nice about paypal
It’s funny coz there was and is an ad for wish on this video
A Zotac 1050 (non TI) is still 100$+, I've never trusted these WISH ads listing high end cards for dirt cheap. Without watching all (but I am watching all) I suspect a 550TI or something flashed with firmware that "works" with the drivers on that disc
Anyone else get a wish advert
And of course I get an ad for Wish right after the video
Wish is the biggest sh*t in the world.
Like Honey... it's a spy...

I bought 3x 750 ti's from ebay @ $22 dollars a piece and they ended up being gtx 550ti. At that time, a 550ti was still worth $40 as it was during the alt coin madness. I thought to myself "damn, if i pay $22 bucks and get a 550ti , what will i get if i buy a $72 1060 3gb?" Answer: a gts 450. I got your exact card, same exact fans, same exact color scheme. Oh, and you can get the card to actually work and install as a 1050ti. Disable windows driver updates.. Use NV remove tool, and install drivers from cd/dvd. It will install and show in device manager as the proper card. No more blue screen of death either.
One of the ads that showed up while watching this was wish.com I’m fucking weak 😂😂😂
