Xbox360 refurb. Is this legit? help!

Hi all,

I chanced upon this website:

http://www.refurbishedxbox360s.com/index.php

the site does look suspicious. Was wondering if anybody has any experience with the website. This with the $5 HDDVD attachment would be nice for my HDDVDs!!

Is there anyway to find out if this is legitimate?

Any hekp would be appreciated.

$35 shipped for an Xbox 360? There's no way this is legit.

From the site's F.A.Q.:

Why is this Xbox 360 System so cheap?
We get paid through our network of sponsors for every survey you fill out. This gives us the purchasing power necessary to pass these large discounts on to you.


This is probably just like one of those free iPod sites where you have to fill out surveys or complete "offers" in order to get the deal, plus gt other people to do it as well. In this case, they're actually making you pay money to do it. They have this deal for the Wii, and probably the PS3 too. I wouldn't do it, since they're asking for your credit card info before they spell out all the requirements, and it sounds like they're based in Asia.
