    Take them to court if they don't give you what you ordered.

    Judge Judy pwned an ebay scammer.

    Search for it on YouTube. I'm not lying.

    I've never really bought anything off ebay. But what I do know is that you should make sure to check the seller's feedback and make sure you fully know what your getting. Because when it says "14 games" it is often just Wiiplay and Wiisports. So read through carefully!

    i honestly personally wouldn't chance it. specially with something that is that expensive. but that's just me. i'd wait til they have them in stores if i were you.

    read everything very clearly before u bid/buy it. i buy from ebay all the time and never had a problem before, i bought my Dell XPS M1710 laptop im using right now from eBay for 2900 which retailed at dell.com for over $4,500 with the same spec's, make sure the sellers feedback is decent, i tend not to buy from sellers that have negative feedback saying like "item was not as described" or something like that. read the guarantee policy and if they allow you to do a refund or exchange and you will have to pay for shipping even if the item is a defect, but other then that its a good way to buy stuff, i save tons of money buying from ebay when i compare it from retail stores. goodluck!

    I've brought off ebay, and HAVE been scammed twice, you are really taking risks when buying, but i dont buy expensive stuff of ebay, just dvd ect.

    Just be careful when buying, sorry for no help, iwouldn't risk it though....

    Like others said above, just make sure the seller you are buying from has a good feedback number. Check out the, say, last 20-30 items that person has sold and you can kind of gauge by that.
    If they only sell a bunch of 1-2 dollar items to boost there feedback rating, and have never sold a Wii before(or any other consoles for that matter) then
    I would avoid them. Go with somebody that has a ebay store. It's more secure.
    Just do you homework before you drop 300-400 bucks on an ebay item.

    Look for free shipping. I just sold one on ebay with free 2-day shipping to Florida. I payed $20 to ship. People way overcharge for shipping.

    yea it's completely safe as long as the user doesn't have negative feedback and for higher priced items such as the wii i'd make sure they've sold at least 5 or 10 items successfully, and btw i have a wii that i was planning to sell on there so if you want details PM me

    I consider my self a Ebay veteran because I pretty much buy every thing from ebay. Games/Consoles/Other
    I have bought Wii's 2 times both times every thing was OK. I don't know why all people always say ebay is really risky i guess they just haven't really tried it themselves or are just afraid of trying. From all my bought items I have received all of them and in the condition it was described so all I have to say is GO for it if you want a Wii.
