lol, do you have generalized anxiety disorder or something? A lot of sentences with "hope" and "worry." I've been scammed on Amazon Marketplace literally once in 9 years. Some guy claimed he received an empty game case when I sent him a sealed game, and he claimed the shipping seal wasn't broken either. I mean, that guy is literally 1 in thousands, like a serious sociopath to try something like that when it was so obvious and for such a small amount of money. There are definitely more scammers on ebay, but statistically, you're probably not going to run into them unless you're a real serious re-seller. USPS losing first class mail is about the same statistically, i.e. immaterial.
As for the price being driven down, it'll revert back to normal in a week or so unless Amazon permanently lowers the price. But the procedure is pretty simple, you just list and forget. None of this "hoping" and "worrying" in the middle. It's not for a lot of money after all.
Wow, nice dick response. Apparently you don't frequent the AZ seller forums too often. And for the record, your "scammer" may have been legit. It's been known in the past that, while it's rare, sometimes games do get shipped without the discs from the manufacturer. Claiming such doesn't make someone a "sociopath."
For me, no, if I get hit by a scammer, it's no big deal. I'm talking for those that are inexperienced.
I sell and ship thousands of items a month, and I've had my share of scammers and lost mail. Statistically, yes, the odds are low, but I'm speaking from experience that these things do happen quite often than you are obviously aware of.
But for someone that wants to just unload the game to offset the cost, some people don't want to list it and forget it. Sure, the price my go back up, but it may not either. Unless you wish to share your psychic knowledge of the market.
I was simply providing others with a quick and easy way to offset the cost of the controller.
