    Considering the games aren't out yet officially it adds more dodgyness to this deal, I think I'll give it a miss, let me know if you get the goods though!

    Regardless of feedback score, I'd avoid this like the plague. Sounds tres dodgy.

    His/Her feedback are mostly for pirate videos at a £1 each. They have any feedback for any game sold.

    Eitherway I'm going inform ebay of this seller.

    Those details seem correct, as an 'Elkatchi' has requested planning permission at the address linky


    Id be pretty gutted if I was selling 'dodgy goods' and left my address on the web.

    Each auction had a quantity of 25 and one ebayer bought pretty much all of them - he must've spent a few grand at least :eek: unless he was in on it as well...

    The strange thing is that if it was being dodgy, then I would advertise at something more plausible... say £25 ??
    You would still get massive interest, people would be likely to fall for it, and you would have 2.5 times as much cash.

    Just a tip for you wannabe fraudsters :p

    You have me very confused now? (its not dificult! hehe)

    If you click on your link and search for "Elkachti" (just using ctrl-f) then there are no hits.

    Either way, its not important. The only important thing is if these games arrive .... and I hope they do!:thumbsup:

    I had mail from the seller this morning,

    'Thanks for getting back to us. All orders for games with the exception of Burnout Revenge X Box 360 were sent out today. You therefore should be in receipt of yours within the next 48 hours. Best regards'

    So all looks rosey....except the fact that he was selling far cry which he seems to claim has been shipped even though its not released til the end of the month....Hmmmmm

    I'll still believe it when I see it.

    Keeping an eye on ya! :D

    Do you know if this guy will ship to mainland Europe (at extra cost of course)? Also, I could not see any X360 games on his list ...:confused: Very possible i'm just being a total idiot of course :D

    Someone got his game!!!

    ...And left the guy a neutral saying the game was in NTSC format, but did issue a refund

    (Burnout)

    Which still begs the question how does he get them from the US and get them to someones door in the UK for around £15?!

    I saw that feed back too...

    'SELLER POSTED UK VIDEO GAME AS AN AMERICAN GAME. DID HOWEVER ISSUE A REFUND.'

    I kinda read it that he'd advertised it as an American game but its actually a PAL release. All the photos he uses in the ads have the US ratings on the cover image....but they all look screen grabbed rather than photos of the actual product.

    He did have a few on there but I think they all went by the end of last week. Fight Night, Burnout, Farcry and something else I cant remember...

    Just checked out the guys previous purchases and they're all for NTSC xbox 360 games so it looks like they are PAL games that are maybe/possibly going to turn up....again I will still believe it when I see it :D
