I have rarely had any issues on adverts and am only a member here because some assholes were slagging me off back in 2007 on boards.

The issue really is if it has happened once that is once too many times, I got screwed over because I let it happen, I just hope no one else does.

He is offering me a partial refund only or I have to wait until Friday,I am now stuck with a hacked Wii and several copied games in original boxes, disgusted I fell for something so fcuking stupid, I have asked for the original discs rather than a refund which he stated he had last night on the ad thread, I really wish that the ad was still open as at least I would then have some concrete proof to go on.

He stated last night that the ad the games were copies yet some people asked for the games to be split, it is people like this that put me off remaining a member here, thanks for contacting him but I think it may prove pointless.

The advert including any editing or changes will still be available to adverts staff and for forwarding on to the Gardai if required but is not available to view on adverts.ie.

Give him the chance to see if he upholds that arrangement.

I agreed to meet him at FAS in Finglas 1 hour ago,he didn't show, I phoned him twice he said he was on the way, from 8:35 until 8:50 he wouldn't answer my calls. At 8:55 he said he will drop the money to my house tonight, I said he has 10 ****ING Minutes to do so,that time has now passed, what do I need to give to the Gardai on this, I have the WII all the pirate games, his user name, two mobile numbers and the now removed but still accessible ad number.

Seems to me, he was genuine after all!!, a slight bit of impatience on your behalf me thinks?

There is nothing genuine about selling counterfeit goods whether it's thousands of pairs of Nike runners to line the pockets of dissident republicans or copied music CDs or DVDs to line your own pockets. Remember the games were described as new and sealed and the wii console was modified to play pirated games.
