    It might last past the end date. But people on eBay either don't think to check for flashcarts or only know the R4

    Someone will end up reporting it. An hour or two tops I say.

    Why? Also the bid is still going with around 22 hours left. If it is a bid $10 or more then they are wasting their money seeing as you could get it cheaper at DX because there is about $4 postage :/. Silly people.

    $4 shipping and low price versus slow as shit free shipping and low price.

    I'd prefer paying $4 for decent shipping.

    Oh right, I heard DX ships pretty bad to the US. They ship to AU pretty fine :3, forgot to take into account what region is which.

    Who does it mention in the Vero notice? The fact that he said he reported you makes it highly likely that it was him but are you 100% certain?

    :/ I'm not sure many people go around reporting flashcart auctions. Though I may be wrong [​IMG]

    Nintendo are pretty vigilant about flashcart sales on eBay and Amazon these days. They don't catch them all (pun included free of charge) obviously but there's still a chance. It could have been someone else selling flashcarts trying to get rid of the competition (I've had this happen ALOT with my legitimate listings). It might not actually be jakob, but the Vero notices aways tell you the name and email address of the person that reported you.

    YOU DON'T HAVE TO REGISTER TO REPORT! [​IMG]

    You don't need an acct with eBay you can just click on the REPORT option and report it!

    I did a while back when someone was blatantly ripping people off selling some phone/theme management software along (avail from the program makers website 100% free!) for $0.99 buy it now price and postage was something like $15! ...Totally ripping people off!


    I went to file a report and noticed I wasn't even logged into eBay yet it still allowed me to fill out a complaints form and file it!

    Note: I'm not a grass!


    But its crappy how people exploit the public and sell stuff you can get for free on there for a quick buck like another example are the guides on how to buy cheap TVs and consoles ..basically selling you a retailers LIST that you can find elsewhere on the net for nothing!

    Shit, I didn't know that you didn't have to be registered user to report now! You've still got to fill in contact details tho ain't you? I agree with you about people selling free shit at stupid prices. But in this case if it was jakob that reported then it's pretty low, it's a bit slimey to grass up a fellow temper for something as trivial as this.

    It couldn't have been reported then. They're always removed within an hour or two.
