Game Return Scam
« on: November 29, 2014, 09:30:24 PM »
So i was thinking about buying a game on ebay and when i receive it i make complaint that the game doesnt work and try to get a refund or return it ,ill put a blank disc and keep the game.
i will use ebay click&collect so wont need a address
Is there anything else that i need to do?

Just say you never received it.

Most games won't be tracked.

Same on Amazon

Here in the UK it depends on how much it is

I once used to order loads of games under 10, none were tracked I contacted the sellers direct and they all refunded me.

I rinsed and repeated. Never paid for a game for like 2 years.

But if you buy a more expensive game it may come tracked especially if purchased from a company.

You do know you're supposed to charge the battery on those?
