    ??? You bought a single cart for 150USD? or did you attempt to buy more?

    You've been a member 4 and a half years and this is your first post? Weird.

    Anyway, did you use a CC? You can probably get most of your money back if you did. Contact your CC issuer to find out.

    Why didn't you do a search for reliable sellers? Even the official Gateway site lists some.

    From the OP I gather he tried to buy a single card and $150 was taken from his account without authorization. Clarification would be helpful though.

    Perhaps the title of this thread should say the dealers name rather than the product? Surely it is the dealer who is the scammer here and not Gateway?

    The name of the site must've been created that way to intentionally mislead people, but the thread title doesn't blame Gateway for anything...

    The Gateway Team cannot be responsible for any seller using scam method. Go to trust site as GW recommend.

    Yea we can't help. Call your creditor/bank and report the fraud. They're the only ones that can do anything.

    well, the fact that now all one gets is an empty page (as in the only reply transmitted is EOF, length zero) and no lookup/resolve error or server error like 404 or 502 shows that there was a page once.

    going deeper intio the rabbid hole gives https://www.3dsgateway.com/tdsgw/tdsprocess/tranzactd.php, remnants of some online shop kit.

    seems like a web based smash grab and run situation.

    edit: Oh, and it's hosted in romania. Nothing against romanians in general, just from past experiences (luckily all second and third hand) romania seems to develop to a kind of european nigeria regarding net and phone fraud...
