    I was looking to buy an R4i Gold 3DS RTS, and nds-card.com seemed the most dependable. I then stumbled upon threads here and here. The posters claim that they have had unauthorized purchases on their credit cards. Their payments most likely went through fashionpay.com. If I buy this through PayPal, is there still a risk for this to happen? If not, are there any other sites I can order a flash card from?

    Do yourself a big favor and find a US vendor that uses tracking don't bother ordering from them. Unless your okay with waiting a month+ for your r4i card

    I'm willing to wait a month+ as long as nothing happens. Their shipping page says that orders under 39.99 get free HongKong Air Mail (No Tracking#) that ships between 10-50 days, and I can upgrade to Hong Kong Registered Air Mail (Tracking No. Available) for two dollars. The latter ships between 7-35 days. Are these estimates accurate?

    (BTW, I'm gonna go to sleep, will check posts tomorrow.)
