no its E**Y...the sellers description is perfectly clear...........it could not be clearer........the buyer has no leg to stand on in any dispute...........he/she will have a small empy box(with instructions) to stand on though..
they have also kept it private so the bidders names are not displayed...so no one can let them know.....im telling you alot of buyers are just plain silly..

i wouldnt pay more than £20 tbh and thats only if there arent any rips in it......

Agreed, just personally don't think I could do it, but then if people are stupid enough not to check what they are buying I guess they get what they deseve.

This is a prime example of dumb ebayers who dont read things properly. Yet i bet ya they will blame the seller.

I don't agree. He has put BOX in caps in the title and very clearly says its just the box and instructions throughout. Normally scammers put that its just the box in [SIZE="1"]tiny letters at the end of the auction[/SIZE]

but he has taken a picture of the dsi and stylus from the box that cleverly looks like the real deal

I've seen an "XBOX 360 box" go for over £200 :w00t:

I wonder where he would stand on having any negative feedback removed if found innocent of any wrongdoing (which I assume he would as he really isn't doing anything wrong)?

Not to me it doesn't!
I had to go through the images twice to see what you meant, part of the photo of the back is still there even, surely he would have editted that out if he intended to con anyone? I presume you mean this one?

Had a few people ask why - but in the last few months I have found taht people throw them away and then regret it - I have sold many inc Wii, PS3, iPOD, Tom Tom etc. It surprised me too but they do fetch quite a lot. Wii got £50 for box and the buyer was made up - strange but true! Regards PaulQ: Just to be clear this is the box only...with instructions, it does not include the DS 09-Oct-09A: Hi Thats is correct. Kind Regards Paul



How much more clear could he be?

The fact that he has put complete in the title will mean he has to refund ,

I don't agree, it states multiple times in the description it is for the box only. Seller will just claim it is the box that is complete.

Depends whether he can live with the fact that someone (stupid) has overbid.

It doesnt matter,Ebay dont allow this anymore,It has to clearly state in the title what you are buying, The fact that it says
" Nintendo DSi Complete BOX & Original Instructions NR DS"
will be enough to cancel the sale,If it had stated DSI box with no DSI then that would be okay,

+1

plus it is listed under consoles which it clearly isnt. I've bookmarked it to pop up in 2 weeks to see what happened lol

Just goes to show all the nutters whom never read the description or got fed up scrolling down and just bid for it...

What a nasty seller. Yes it's obvious to those who read through the whole listing that it's an empty box, but anyone with any experience of ebay knows a lot of people just don't read, or are just not that bright. Someone is going to be very upset in a few days and the seller knows it.

Got to be shill bids its at £100 now :w00t: People like this need a good slap.

I doubt it. People just think it's a DSi :x

ChipSticks;6572351

What these scum do is shill bid up the price then somebody comes along in the last few Min's does not red the description properly and bids, they shill bid to make it seem people are bidding on the item and to get the price up trust me.

Think i might sell my xbox360 box..

To be fair (apart from the if you think the seller is deceiving anyone, which I don't) it's not the sellers fault that people are bidding £100+ for it, it's the stoopid buyers who at fault here.

If it was selling for £5 would you have posted it be posted on here..........no.

I think looking at the sellers feedback hwe will probably refund,There is no sign of him scamming anyone else and i think he just made a mistake not listing it correctly,
