    If you paid with Paypal you can get your money back.

    You probably got scammed. Next time you want to buy a R4 3DS try www.ndsgamer.com they ship from Texas. I got my R4i Gold 3DS the day after they shipped.

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    Nintendo got paypal to basically blacklist ALL online vendors from selling flashcarts. Your days of buying flashcarts online with paypal are pretty much over.

    They are the best USA seller you can find! I got my EZ-Flash IV from there in 3 days in January. Highly recommend that site!

    Prices are a bit high, and the shipping isn't free, but it gets to you fast.

    Throw in another recommendation for them from me. Order before 4 PM EST and they'll ship that day (at least that's how it used to be, haven't ordered from them in a while).

    By far one of the best US based sellers. Prices are just unfortunately a dollar or two higher, + shipping.

    Yeah I have heard a lot of customers that this site never sends the merchandise...

    Someone should make a blacklist of sites like that and pin the thread somewhere on the forum for others to beware.
