Good luck to those that gave it a shot, seems on closer inspection there was hesitation in the crowd. Keep an eye on your protection window and file a claim if you don’t see your package.

Warranty included. This smells awfully fishy.

Yeah, not buying it. They lifted the item description from Nintendo's $50 listing.

Small seller with only 43 feedback suddenly has 100 of these refurbed with a warranty?
Account probably got hacked.

That or they fell off a truck.

One of their other listings has a description lifted from eBay seller TechRabbit. Not worth the trouble.

This seems legit, especially with a title like "Nintendo 2ds Electric Blue 4 Games Avatar Metroid Prince of Persia Indiana Jones", and seller has had no feedback for 6+ months but suddenly has an influx of hundreds of three specific products.

Well, tried for 1, we'll see what happens. Worst case file a claim with Ebay.

No feedback since April 29th which said they didn't receive what they bought though the rating is positive for some reason..

This is clearly fraudulent guys. Don't waste your time and tie up your money.

I’ll be glad to not send someone a 2DS for only $18.

Edited as now dead.

As many have pointed out, buyer protection is huge on eBay so likely you’ll get your money back if this was a scam

Be cautious about buying these shady listings. Ebay only allows a certain amount of claims before your deemed a problematic buyer. They don't care if your being honest. Once banned, it's forever.

This sounds like the $12 new Pokemon Go Plus I took a gamble on last year. If it ends up the same you'll all get an automatic refund in a day or two.

Pages are completely gone, so it seems like it was a scam after all.
Good luck to everyone getting their money back.

I got an email a couple days ago from Ebay saying they believed the listing was a fraudulent account and gave steps to request a fefu d. Once I did I got it within minutes.

They now have some of your personal info. You should probably change your ebay and paypal passwords just to be safe. Also enable 2 step verification, if haven't already.

Identity theft is worth the price of admission.
