    It'll be hard to find a seller to you

    They can't do that no matter how illegal it is. It's his legal property where he can do what ever the fuck he wants with it.

    Yes, they can confiscate his consoles, chips, and tools. Just as when cops raid a meth lab, they confiscate pretty much everything in the bathroom and kitchen. It legal to own bleach, but it's not to run a meth lab.

    It's legal to own a console, but it's not to run a mod-shop or to sell mod-chips. Therefore, they were confiscated.

    I can't believe you just said "They can't do that no matter how illegal it is" ... uh, go learn the law.

    Okay. That was a stupid post I made. But, how would they even find out YOU have a modded console, you know unless now they go checking every single house.

    they didn't raid some users house, they raided a shop. which means they just tracked them down through the internet. it wouldn't really be that hard for the police to do.

    I would say modchipstore but they apparently disappeared off the face of the earth just recently.

    Thats who I went with. I was just shocked to find some of my normal stores no longer ship to the US. [​IMG]

    Anyway I hope to have a modded Wii sometime in the near future.
