hi, i have sold a ACTION 52 megadrive cartridge on ebay, and it was one by someone.
Now this guy is refusing to pay because it is an illegal catridge or "back-steet and instanbul market" gear.
his arguement lies with that :
"Hi i was just about to pay when I noticed this is an illegal hacked cartridge and not a sega product. And ofcourse you can understand I will not be paying for an illegal item. I will notify ebay of the item If you choose to leave bad feedback. "
I explained that all releases on consoles are made by the makers, EG Action replay- that state on them they are not endorsed by sega, my cartridge is like this as it was sold in america for $199 at the time, and too states it is not endorsed by sega...it was even advertised in magazine and shops.

PROOF 2(SEE PARAGRAPH 2) http://www.atarihq.com/tsr/odd/scans/active.html
PROOF 3 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicart
its not listed in the pirated multicarts its listed in the unlicenced multicarts
He then replies with
"thats not valid. Action replay Was sold in shops and was not an illegal product. your item is an illegal cartridge. Im not into your pressure type situation to pay style. lets let ebay know about this and see what happens then shall we..... If it was a legal cart it would be sold openly on the market. Your item is 'back-street istanbul' You are having a laugh trying to con people like this. please dont bother me again or I will take this further."
i then replied with:
you've either been informed wrong or your just wrong. as i said it is like action replay as it just isnt licenced my sega........... if you dont believe me look on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicart
its not listed in the pirated multicarts its listed in the unlicenced multicarts....so i think you will find i am correct...and im not bullying you into paying....feel free to get ebay in, because if you dont i will.
THEN FINALLY HIS LAST REPLY
its a back-street illegal cart. This is bullying. not impressed with your attitude. If the item was legitimate I would have bought it. It is not though a recognised sega product....which makes it illegal. Action replay WAS recognised and sold to an open market. Please stop this now and dont bother contacting me again.
I TRULY BELIEVE I AM RIGHT...But am i?
"Generally, there are believed to be less than 10,000 of each Active cart produced, so.. if you are truly insane.. try adding them to your collection before it gets too difficult"
