Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Did I get scammed?

 

Steamworld Dig 2 appeared on eBay for £15. The guy had about 10 available and had other games listed for the same price. All new and sealed with free P+P. I bought SD2 and most of the other games quickly sold out except for Ass Creed Origins and FIFA. A few hours later single copies of each game appeared for £4.99 so I bought the last one of as many as I could. Checked again earlier today and more had appeared for £4.99 and quickly sold out.

The user has 1100+ sales, 97% positive, been a user since 2015 and regularly sells AV cables and other cheap items. I assume they've either fell off the back of a lorry or they've got lucky with recent game shops/divisions closing or slimming down (ToysRUs, Grainger, Tesco Direct). I can't understand why anyone would let them go for so cheap.

If you were scammed, you should be able to contact eBay and get a refund. If you weren't scammed, I guess you just got games for pretty cheap



Those are some crazy cheap games. His profile makes him look like an honest seller but I dunno...for that price...

Any date for the delivery? Can you update me if you received the games or not?

If it wasn't for buyer protection, I wouldn't have bothered. Fingers crossed.

The only thing that's suspicious are the prices. Delivery is 3-5 days but feedback suggests they ship quicker. Yeah, i'll update.

You may have been. I've bought items that look genuine on ebay because the seller has a great rating, and have been burned before. You'll just have to wait and see.

Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Maybe he's selling just some covers? Else you're lucky.

PS4 will sell 25 million units before 31st of March!

Edit: I didn't state what year! HAHA, so I'm still right in some sense

Wait to judge until the package is supposed to get to ya.



If it shows up and works then no, you've not been scammed.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

if a long time ebay seller is suddenly selling items they never really carried before for dirt cheap it's usually a hacked account
