    PAYPAL are awkward!!

    Hey everyone

    Bit of a newb but here goes. I bought Nintendogs from ebay last week for £15. It arrived yesterday and is a blatent copy, printer marks and everything on it! I have lodged a claim with Paypal and got an email saying I need to provide them with a letter from an expert saying that it is fake. It must have official letter heading and everything.

    Has anyone been in the same position? Where can I go to find an expert?

    Thanks in advance

    I think if you went to Game or somewhere that would suffice as long as they're willing to give you a letter confirming it.

    try taking it to gamestation.

    tell the ebay seller you will phone the police if you don't refund it because its illegal.

    yea agree just message him and demand your refund or you will call the police it worked for me.

    how do these copied games work? ive never seen one? do they work?

    have you actually communicated with the seller regarding this?

    i had a problem with some y3 trainers which were blatant fakes(made of cardboard under the insole carp stictching etc)
    messaged stating he might get away withit with some people but not me

    sent em back and refunded no prob

    Yeah her communication is poor. She hasn't replied. Thing is, I don't want to send it back because I don't want some other poor unsuspecting soul to get it. If she refunds, I will hand it in to a police station.

    I think its a carp rule, If it were me, Id have to travel 20miles+ to get someone to look at it, no game shops anywhere near me (which is the damn reason I buy from ebay! though cause of this, i wont touch games,cds,dvds etc) :x

    Yeah it's the first time I've bought any sort of software from ebay. Seems they'll do anything to stop you going to the trouble of claiming your money back. Funny thing is this person has around 1300 feedback and has still never been stopped!

    I know but shouldn't something like this just be burned? Completely worthless

    I had a very simular thing I bought a creme chloe bag from ebay in listing it stated 100% real blah blah but i received a total fake and totally wrong colour I told pp and was told I need chloe them self to write a headed letter in a certain time pp was being very unhelpful, I even got in touch with TS who did nothing then I told the police who told me to wait on the pp claim but the police gave me a crime number which I passed on to the seller think she was scared then and issued a refund soon as I returned it.

    Sorry but you can't have the penny and the bun. I suggest you contact the seller again but you will have to send it back to have any chance of getting your money back.

    so if you send it back, the seller can then just ignore you completely and paypal wont give a damn.

    take it into trading standards a request a written receipt stating exactly what was handed in, also contact Fed Against Software Theft or Fed Against Copyright Theft

    Received an almost instantaneous refund from Paypal. Perhaps they've had trouble with this seller before? Although they didn't mention about whether I return the game or hand it over to Police/Trading Standards. Result none the less!
