I'm guessing it's a cardboard Vita.

I am not implying to file a false insurance claim with the postal service, so no, it's not " mail fraud advice. It is a legitimate way to recoup your money from what Ebay calls buyers protection. If the seller sends an empty box and Ebay wants you to return it, then that negates your refundable amount owed to you. So, since Ebay will allow you to get potentially burnt, I am suggesting an avenue for those whom don't like to get screwed. Spin it or call it anything you want, but to hell if I will allow Ebay to not fulfill there " Buyer Protection " they advertise.

By claiming that you didn't receive your Chinese parcel to Ebay ( assuming it's empty or junk ) to me is acceptable as it will negatively affect the seller as Ebay will simply pull the funds and return you monies. This is not fraud on your behalf if you receive an empty box!

HaHa very well might be and that would be closer to 35$ well spent. My guess is you get an empty Vita bundle box possibly with a 4GB memory card. I am actually very curious as to what people will receive, so please be sure to update when you get your package. Don't get me wrong, I truly hope lots of people get a 35$ Vita and enjoy just how great of a system it really is. I will then repeatedly flyswatter my testicles till torsion occurs for not buying all of them.

Just remember to wear rubber gloves when playing the Blaystation Wita in case of possible electrocution.

Same here. Besides, if we get ripped, it's only $35. I spend that for dinner.

You know, the way the Vita has sold and COD being a disaster, these could be equvilent to the Atari ET carts in the dump. Sony could have way way overestimated the demand and ended up dumping them.

Well, mine has shipped and the guy shows sold out now. I guess we'll know in a couple of weeks.

Just so you all know, there are multiple Chinese accounts that were opened up on Ebay that are selling hundreds of both the Vita COD package and the GoFlex 3TB HDD. They also sell a few random items (many of which are similar across multiple accounts).

Good luck to those that bought it...

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 7:20:26 AM PST
And aren't said boxes weighed prior to being shipped, or when hitting customs?

I bought some items out of Hong Kong and every single package was weighed, twice.

Totido says:
Yeah, I saw one in Hong Kong that had Vit COD listed for $42. I figured it was worth the gamble. Worse case is I lose $35. It will be interesting to see what shows up.

Sony had a couple of Semi's with Vita bundles jacked just like Fast and the Furious. Next thing you know 1,000's of vitas show up on ebay at ridiculous prices. It could happen haha.

Misfit says:
Yes to both of your questions. But regardless of weight, if it is not the item as described you can still file a claim. Ebay is not going to investigate weight as a factor when close to 400 people file a claim against the seller that also has multiple accounts. This is another 35$ vita listing that is bogus.

Wow that description is a lot worse than the one from last night.

Sounds legit.

It's always nice to hear when a seller cares about their honour customer.

This is interesting. Keep us posted on the outcome. I hope this is legit and you guys get a Vita.

It has to cost around $30 just to ship the item anyway. I can't see how they would be making any money on these if they were legit.

I had an email this morning with tracking #. Last time I ordered from China, it took about 3 weeks to arrive. In that case, it was exactly what I ordered.

Totido says:
I know. I've ordered cables on Amazon that came from China. The cables were .01 and shipping was .99. That was just a few cables that cost nothing, but don't see how a buck paid for transportation, let alone material.

Doesn't Paypal not refund your money until the seller accepts return of the item? If it costs you $30 in shipping to return a fake $35 product, you're only getting your $5 back.

EDIT: It does state Paypal covers shipping costs though...

Totido says:
Even if it's bogus, I doubt if I will even try to return. It's not that much money to worry about. If it had been $99, I probably wouldn't have taken the risk. It will be interesting. I have a Vita anyway, so thought I would try this for the fun of it.
