    Ok, I was trolling craigslist for a DSi XL, and saw a link for this website. surelybuy.com Some of the stuff they sell seem rediculously cheap. So, I am extremely buyer beware unless someone here has dealt with them before. Anyone?

    They're selling used devices, so the prices aren't that ridiculous. But a Google search can't find the site and the first link it gives me is this very topic, so I'm still skeptical.

    The testimonials on the site are obviously fake. I'd be cautious if I were you.

    EDIT: Also, a customer centre with Yahoo and MSN email addresses? That can't be right.

    It's also 4 years old. That's also outrageous! [​IMG]

    ...so anyway, I don't trust them.

    I'd stay wary of this, as if the prices are so low then there is often something else behind it.

    Ah, yeah, the only methods of payments they accept are WesterUnion, moneygrams, and bank transfers. LOL.
