    so bad shopping experience to hear that, you should purchase from another local official sky3ds reseller.

    If you paid with Paypal, you can file for a refund. Paypal will ask the company for the shipping information and if they can't prove you got it, you should get your money back.

    One of the suckers paid $525 to import a Japan region PS Vita when it was not released in North America. I got a nice cut of $16 of that sale because the sucker bought it by clicking my affiliation link on a signature at another website.

    Yay consumerism!

    If you don't buy from the official resellers to save a few £ and get ripped off you really can't blame anyone but your self.

    A french site on the Champs Elysées? They must've shipped a lot of Sky3DS to be able to pay the rent there. Also, there's a Citroën garage there. Should've done a bit of research before ordering.

    Anyway, that PostNL site is legit, it's the international version of the official Dutch mail.

    And 75000 is not a valid ZIP code (75001 to 75016, some around greater number but not for this kind of addresses)...

    Issue with that is, PayPal will likely not refund since it's a banned item for their service. You hear stories of people being banned for selling and buying modchips using PayPal.
    Many of the reasons why sellers of modchips, flashcarts and region loaders don't accept PayPal.

    Really? PostNL site "legit" when ending with *dot*post, rather than *dot*NL?
    Looks suspect to me. Since all their actual pages all refer to the NL and not 'post' url.

    Unless the international/english page somehow has the post extention.

    I think that, as French, he wanted to buy in France.
    Unfortunately, I only know 1 "real" french store : http://www.infinitydream.com/

    As French, I ordered flashcarts from Digimaniaz without problems (R4/DSTwo) and Eachmall (Gateway). All products came from HK/CN I think and it took about 10 days to come.

    Err... If anything, the .post domain makes it more legit. You can't just get a .post domain easily.
