Stores can deny returns, like if you buy 10 and return them. It's a $3000 return!


Didn't most places cap purchases of these systems?? And why would a store deny the return??

My guess is that they maxed out their ONLY credit card trying to flip these...
You try going back to Wally-World with 6 of these ... saying "I changed my mind about my nieces and nephews..."

Oh... btw ... it's getting even worse (better)...

but wait, there's more to my sob story as i ask $1000 for a pair of stuffed homer simpson dolls...on top of that?!?!?!?!

please, if you can consider helping.......i have had one hell of a life--i was drowned by a life guard when i was 12 years old and spent more than ten minutes on the bottom of a pool with a water filled body before being rescued. My father told me i deserved to be drowned. On top of that traumatic, life changing event, i was also molested by women four times before i was 10 years old. On top of that, my father, was verbally, emotionally and physically abusive; he told me i deserved to be drowned, i used to go to school with bruises...i was that kid....i just need a break....a helping hand, a better day......being here with my ex is torture for both of us....

It's most likely stolen, not necessarily just walk out the door shoplifting, by an employee or someone working the back room. Easy $300, if you don't lose your job, and if you're a fucking idiot, i guess.

Especially being baltimore, I wouldn't rule it out.

Everyone who joins the CAG XBox One Conga Line from now until my 11 referrals are met are entered into a drawing to win a FREE $60 game from me! So get going - the Gamefly referral costs nothing, and others are as low as $1!

With the Wii U out and the idiotic decline of the ads (not just the asking prices but also the grammar), I think I'm done altogether with Chicago's Craigslist. I don't want a Wii U yet, I don't want my 360, PS3, or watch modded, and I'm sure as hell not paying $20 for a Wii guitar controller.

Sorry. This guy seemed very passionate about getting his message across, I wasn't expecting for him to delete it so soon. I dropped the ball here.

It probably won't sound very funny with me explaining it, but basically it was some guy telling everyone what retailers in the area had WiiU's in stock and how much they are. And to not buy from resellers on Craigslist because they're not to be trusted. Oh well... It was funny and now it's dead... :(

A shot at redemption!

Just had my first experience with a mexican trying to buy my vita with fake 100 dollar bills. I threw the money at him and took my stuff back and he jumped in the car when he saw i was going to kill him, and ran off. Blocked # should have told me all i needed to know, but i gave him the benefit of the doubt. I was so in rage, i didnt get his license plate. If i ever see him again, well, lets just say it wont end pretty.

They looked really good, i just know the genuine article to know the difference. If you've handled enough real money, you know what its supposed to feel like, these were fake. He never emailed me, only called from a blocked number.

While I'm sure some of these ads might have some truth to them, I'd be very cautious giving them anything. There are many other organizations that can provide help to those families that TRULY need it. Message them back and tell them to go to church. If they are truly in need, they will find the help they want there.
