lmao ^^. I can't even really understand that post he says PS3 then he says 360 wanted......and he's going to trade it for a $2400 home entertainment system? I wouldn't pay $2400 or $700 or $50 for that junk but that's me.

This is a pretty common surround system scam. Basically worthless junk touted as worth 2 grand. Usually scammers flag people down in parking lots and tell them how these are worth 2 grand and they have extra stock and try to sell them to you for whatever you have. You get home and either speakers are empty or you have a speaker system with the power of clock radio speakers.

I don't know if this guy was scammed and trying to get something out of it or what. Or maybe he is a scammer.

Lol I've responded to 3 or 4 ads that have said to ask them for a list of games, and I've never gotten a responce. What do they expect, me to buy the games before I know what they are!?


They are obviously phishing you... I never reply to those kind of ads. If the seller wishes to *require* me to email them for some kind of additional details that could have easily been put in the ad (aside from their phone number - as that is understandable that one would not want to post their cell in a public forum for all to see), then that is an immediate red flag for me...

Hi,

I found an old Nintendo machine in my garage and don't want it anymore, It's the first one with the part that flips up so you can put the game in.

It has one controller and an orange gun and these games:

Mario Duck Hunting
Rad Racer
Nintendo World Championships (the game is a shiny gold)
The Legends of Zelda (this one is also gold)
Golfing
Super Mario 2
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Please send me an email if you would like to buy or come see this. I can't post pictures unfortunately because I don't have a digital camera.

No minorities please.

Thank You

Reply to: hb6bd-3011420309@sale.craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

I have a nintendo gameboy advance SP. The color is onyx black with black buttons. It has a little bit of wears and scratches but its still in good shape and works. All buttons work good. Both the charging light and power light work too. Ive also got two gameboy games one is pokemon ruby and the other is pokemon mystery dungeon red rescue team and they both work great. The only thing I dont have is a charger. Im selling the gameboy for $54 and both games for $54 each. Email me if you have any questions.


I'm sorry but what? Of course there are no pictures either but STILL. Also saw an ad for someone asking 60 for a GH copy of Parasite Eve...

Actually this isn't bad. Original NES' aren't cheap anymore. I believe the going prices for them are $60 or $70. Then you add all the games in. I don't know know what to say about that Nintendo World Championships if it's real it's worth a fortune but there's no way in hell it is. Regardless assuming it's a fake I don't think this belongs in this section under Craigslist stupidity.

Edit: Wait what is this? "No minorities please" Ok there is a reason for this to be here LMFAO that's freakin hilarious.

Someone should email him and tell him that they're a big black dude with a 12 inch penix that wants to come by and check out his "NES"

I don't see any reason for it to be disgusting other than all of that stuff being worth way more than a dog (at least in my eyes). But I do think it's weird how many people post ads like that. I see that every other time I check Craigslist.

what is the actual value of the system with those games? I doubt anyone will pay him the $100 so maybe he will take an actual value offer

Just look in the pets section, people try to trade pets for stuff all the time. That, or they want straight cash which they justify by calling it some bullshit like "re-homing" fee. Yeah, because charging someone to take the pet you don't want any longer will somehow ensure they go to a good home.

You actually are insane if you give your pet to someone for free. Lots of labs take these animals for testing and pay. You have to charge enough that they can't make money taking it to a lab. You can't guarantee a good home but you can do that.

The Pokemon games alone currently sell between 30-50 a piece. So saying at max that is $150, maybe a used DS at $100. 8 other gameboy games at $3 a piece is $24 so we are at $275. Then 9 DS games for maybe $10 a piece we'd be at $365. So is his price that far off?

His biggest problem is trying to sell it in a bundle. As you pointed out those might be individual prices he could get but alot of people might not want everything for $360.

Then use the fee as a donation to an organization that helps animals, some people do that, that's reasonable.

Most of the ads I've seen come across as irresponsible idiots trying to make a quick buck on something they were likely never responsible enough to have.

Even then, those prices are reaching pretty far. Those pokemon games will likely not sell for more than $25 a piece even the DS games. A used DS by itself is $60.

After fees, if he sold online, there's no way $360 is a deal.

if he was selling at MSRP then he'd be in the ballpark.
