Xbox 360 refurbished scam?

I have not found anything about this site indicating it is a scam, but I am sure it is. Still, would like to see what you guys think and could dig up on it.

Never buy anything refurbished or used...I bought a ps2 from a group like them the thing blew up when I turned it on. Then I got a second one and that one destroyed my cd's inside of it. Lastly the third one had cut wires. Your better off spending the extra cash for a brand new system.

I wouldn't trust it, plus you have to sign up for a bunch of stuff, so you'll probably be paying more then $34.99, never mind they'll also probably steal your identification and sell it and your credit card info to someone else.
I need a new tag.

I bought my second gamecube refurbished (first one broke) and ps1 used, and never had any problems with them. However I know not to trust this site, I just wanted to see peoples thoughts on it. Funny how this site and its wii affiliate are advertising here.
