Default Re: Beware! Fake English Versions of Fire Red/Leaf Green on Ebay!

The one that didn't come out good looks completely fake but the leaf green with Venasaur looks cool. Either way nobody could fall for the design. I wonder why sparkles are in the middle.

1.0-sucks
2.0-not exactly convincing

If you buy those games from Ebay though, beware! Could be like a VCR, Very Clever Ripoff, you get a box with no game in it! Or if you speak English like me, you get the Japanese version, but the seller probably makes you pay double or 3 times what it cost in Japan so thus, you get, how I say, SCREWED!

NEver trusted E bay, people sell anything, and I mean anything, which is how stupid E bay is.
If Ebay isn't any good, it wouldn't be so popular and sucessful like it is today. You just have to be careful when buying stuff from Ebay, or buy anything online. These are people you're trusting to send you an item, and not all humans are good people. Obviously, buying a game that hasn't been released yet on Ebay isn't a good idea. However, for most other things, it's fine as long as you follow the feedback system. The main thing is to check the seller's feedback. People can leave feedback on the seller whether everything went well or not. Some people have more than 500 feedback entries, and none of them are negative, so that's what you're looking for in a seller.

If it's a seller with 50 entries of feedback, and all of them were positive, that's still trustworthy, but you probably won't want to spend like $1000 on that seller. If it's a seller with 50 entires and mostly negative feedback, then you probably want to stay away. You get the idea, feedback system gives you a better idea on who to trust more and who to be careful of.

Yuck...a good friend of mine bought one of these (Leaf Green) from HK for US $32 -_-

It's only half translated, and it's not compatible with R/S >_<

He's not too happy, but he's still playing through it.

Ebay is a very good service, it's just that there are some real scumbags out there. I'm going to suggest that my friend contact Ebay and file a complaint.

Heh, yea, that's not good. It kinda ruins the game for yourself if you play a game that's only half translated, and probably not translated very well.

I think eBay should not allow people to sell anything unless they check it out first.

The problem with that is Ebay gets so much going that it would be impossible to check them all anyway. So yeah, the feedback system is likely the best to do (I'd stay with the rule of 1 negative feedback means rejection and the person must have had like 10 feedback first).

Does Ebay even ship thier stuff? If they don't do it already they should bring the sellers Merchandise,use/play it and see what happens.

That's not how Ebay works.

This is how Ebay basically works:
You bid on the item.
You trust the person based on the seller's feedback he/she has recieved.
The seller is suppose to ship you the item when payment is made.

Ebay doesn't do anything, it just runs the site, and collects a small fee from the auctions. That's it. So, it's really up to the people to be careful buying stuff from there. It's probably not a good idea to spend a thousand bucks on something when the seller has no feedback or negative feedback. If the person has a lot of positive feedback, then it's more trustworthy. It's common sense, you just need to be aware that there are people out there to scam people, but most of them are real people out there that just want to sell their stuff.
