    If it's too good to be true, it usually is.

    I mean I get Ebay, Craiglist, are very questionable. however I have sold some items in amazon and is not as easy as Ebay, or Craiglist, and from experience you don't get the money right away and if there's a problem the seller pays any fees for refunding the buyer and you don't have access to the customer credit card. worst thing it could happen is that you don't get your product, but you'll get your money back. however it is true. If sounds too good to be true, then it's a lie. or a very stupid seller.

    By the way, I'm not suggesting anyone should buy it at the price. Everything points to a scam. If you do wish to attempt to buy anything. Handle everything inside amazon. If the seller tries to contact you outside amazon, notify amazon, that's a big red flag. use amazon return form and to message the seller.

    Don't be scam, always practice good cyber security. =)

    There may be ways to make money through this, for example, procrastinating the buyer, 'lost/damaged in post', selling users details, etc.

    It would also explain why it's so cheap, because it means people are more likely to buy so as to get an overall 'profit'.

    Because it's Amazon, they're likely betting on people trusting them more (if this was ebay, would anyone here not be saying 'its obviously a scam' and chancing it?).

    I ordered the Bomberman game and the left and right grey joycons (priced as ~$28 ea.). I also ordered another copy of Bomberman I found for $19 from a different shop. We'll see what happens.

    That same seller has everything in their store for under $10. You know theres something fishy about it, I mean stuff thats usually $100+ at under $10, but at the same time you hope its legit lol

    Don't sellers get charged a listing fee?

    @tech345 made a good point. Read the description before you buy anything. If the seller listed that there's a problem, (for example, that is broken) they might not be hold responsible. and check where is being ship from.

    It's a possibility. Amazon removed the ability for sellers to include condition notes for New items which is why you never see any condition notes' information anymore. It's a stupid move from Amazon to have done this.

    As a collector and gamer who's picky about what I buy, this is a tad annoying 'cause I don't know exactly if what the seller is selling is that very product displayed. I could always send them a message about it.

    After looking at the seller profiles and looking at their products they all list the same things. Scam +3 Legit 0
