Default Ridiculous PSU Gambling Website

So i came across this god awful website which allows people to pay $90 open basically a loot box for PSU's. Some of the PSU you can "win" are horrendous.

How can a company operate something like this? The worse part is there is no real age verification for the site so children could be using it.

LMAO, not even form factor is consistent. Nobody even slightly informed would use it.

This is in no way a legit site. LOL!

Maybe they're used units retired from crypto-mining.
