Hi, last Sunday I purchased a sky 3ds card from teensy.co.uk. It was just stuck on processing and they are not answering my emails or fb messages. I checked my credit card statement and the worldpaything which they used to debit my credit card took a transaction out for £67.22 (they should of debited £64.99) but it wasn't actually worldpay it simply said HONGJIN SZ CHN. I rang up my credit card fraud line and they told me it was a shoe shop in China?? They are sending me a new credit card and reimbursing me the money.

I have purchased stuff in the past and it was ok hence why I went with them again!

Please let me know if you receive your order? I haven't and they won't answer my emails.

I see you're in the UK - was the 64.99 the listed price? Sometimes banks charge additional fees for curreny conversions. I would check with them first.

Though 99% of the "Us/UK" based sellers tend to sell their stock through China anyways.

This is the email I got from the credit card people who debited my account. It should of only been £64.99!! but noticed it does say they take more out, but just a heads up, it seems fraudulent if my statement says its a shoe shop in china. Just beware! Teensy are not fulfilling orders at the moment?

Is anyone else having issues with teensy?

That isn't fraudulent at all. Banks usually charge a percentage for currency conversions.

Sure, but it make me smile, not your payment issue but the counter.
It's bad policy to say you're in UK but bank account is chinese so the money are excanging menwhile.

Yeh you are right. It explains the difference. But I'm going on what the credit card company say. If teensy got their act together and actually fulfilled paid orders and responded to emails people wouldn't be questioning them. If I do get a sky card you can bet your bottom dollar my post count will go up! haha

I bought a Gateway from them just after Christmas, it took a week to come. I'm sorry to hear what happened, maybe this is a recent development ?

Teensy should be a UK seller so the whole conversion rate extra charge is a moot argument, ive seen others say they have not had orders delivered since new year from them. try New3dscard.co.uk you can use paypal and that way its a bit safer, UK stock too.

OP , hope you get it sorted out man.

Well i have had stuff from them before and it has been fine, delivered promptly. If you check their Facebook, its full of people complaining about items not being received but money taken. That set alarm bells ringing. Time will only tell! Don't know where to get the sky3ds card from now where I can trust :(

This thread is so silly.

You're buying something which is actually illegal in the uK.

When you get stuff from chinese based firms the amount charged is random but close to the advertised price due to currency fluctuations/bank charges

(btw your bank will probably add on a additional fixed charge of £1-£2)


Grow up gedensor - this is a murky world you're partaking in - stop claiming moral rights and stuff.

Your order will no doubt turn up within a month and in the mean-time you've alerted the authorities to another channel for these illegal cards which prevents others getting the cards

^Wat

If Sky3DS was illegal, wouldn't it be taken down?

Flashcarts are illegal in the UK - but I think you're allowed to sell them in other european countries and maybe even other parts of the British Isles (Isle of Man, Jersey etc?) - not sure how the very few uk domain name sellers operate.

sorry mate but one thing is to speak from the safe site and another to just be at the line loosing money , i bought a phone from china ,no reply nothing ,if i didnt open claim on 40th day i would have my money lost ,and item never came . you do seem to think that all the police work is to check about illegal cards as that is their only interest.. who is naive here?

I'm just saying this guy expects John Lewis standards of service - you'll rarely get it in the 3ds flashcart world, at least in the UK. You've gotta expect a few weeks delivery and (slightly) innacurate charges - I've never been completely scammed but have got a few shitty products (batteries especially) - but they were cheap, and I accept the risk.

    I just recently picked up a n64 from a garage sell, and looking to mod it and add a HDMI port to it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/3548173115...044&customid=4f3038da73b61afddf7e5e90f4153856

    I'd like to find a power strip and HDMI selector built in 1 unit, so I can select which game system I want, and will switch to that hdmi, and power on that plug/power supply only, so don't have all game systems powered all the time, but can't find anything like. May just have to make something myself.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Maybe start a kick starter page and sell them, yea right. Big N would prob C&D me, not anything Big N related, but just because that's what they do nowdays. Then come out with they own in a year or so.

    @Xdqwerty, Nice. Which operating system are you installing?
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, windows 10 and some linux distro like linux mint
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    dualbooth
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Yeah, I'd recommend having another OS just in-case you want to play games.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    At least Linux doesn't contain spyware than what Windows has.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, cuz of lag?
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, No. Whenever you use the internet on Windows, Microsoft collects personal data and installs bloatware that isn't necessarily needed, such as Edge.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Speaking of which

    @SylverReZ,
    I recall @impeeza mentioned some trick about not having bloatware when installing windows where you set up your country to "world" or smh like that

    Yes, you can debloat the operating system, but in some cases for me it just reinstalls them.

    I also recall my brother downloded a "non bloated" version of windows 11 on his pc

  • impeeza @ impeeza:
    @Xdqwerty yes, when you are installing Windows on the first steps you are asked for your current location, you MUST to select «international» so no bloatware is installed, because the bloatware is location based. if this night I have some time I will setup a VM and take screenshots.
