    Hi everyone. Not sure where to post this so I posted in the lounge.

    I got scammed on Ebay by the seller "mcmiaust"
    It has been weeks since I purchased the game, but yesterday was the release date for the game and it was supposed to be here then. A couple days later he refunded me $2, which was nowhere near the price of what I paid. I shrugged it off as a fee or something. Of course I didn't question anything before then because I had no reason to. I messaged the seller yesterday and received no response and when the game didn't show up today, I sent another message. His account is unregistered now and all I can do is dispute. Apparently I am one of at least 4 people he took money from.

    So this is a warning. Look out for this person's name (he'd be an idiot to use it again, but still) and don't buy video games from sellers who are selling new games at a half off price. What can I say, I'm stupid for buying one that low, but this person had a 95% positive feedback score with over a year membership. Also, if you see a weird refund after purchasing, contact the seller or Ebay immediately.

    I sincerely hope that a fellow BHW member did not do this because it is wrong on many levels and NOT the way to go about doing business online.
