    First of all, I would rather not be banned so how am I going to post the link to the store if I'm probably going to get banned for it? If the answers is I can then I'll edit my post with the link so you guys can help me out with this.

    Story: I was surfing the net looking for a Nintendo Switch for retail price on an online store, I came across this site that had them for $214 which amazed me to how anyone hadn't found this site yet.

    I would like to ask if this may or may not be a scam site until someone says thats its ok to post the link to the shop, and I'm too stupid/lazy to analyze it.

    Thank You!

    [edit]
    The store name is ThePlaystationPros, heres the link: *removed, scam* please leave feedback on if its legit or not!

    You told us everything about the store except the store name. And you can post a link to a store, just not link to roms.

    Did you ever find out if these guys are legit? I was wondering the same thing as I saw some good deals on their site but I'd really rather not throw money to the wind :)

    Woah, everything they have is so cheap, even brand new stuff. That sounds quite fishy to me. How can they possibly be legit without at least some shady business going on?

    I doubt it. It's not even specifying the actual currency. USD$ or CAD$ isn't even being shown and any online retailer specifies what the price is in CAD/USD

    The PS4 logo links to another site called "cerbreusgamers" that is just a blank index page. It's not a real store for sure.

    Yeah that doesn't look professional at all.

    How do I remove this thread? I made this thread in a stage where I was desperate to go buy a Nintendo Switch. I don't want this to show here on this site anymore.

    You cannot, Contact the moderators or delete your initial post. Why would you want this to be deleted?

    I want it deleted because I alreasy have the answer, and I was in a stage of desperate-ness when I wrote it. Where can I contact a mod to delete this thread?

    I closed the thread, but I'd better not delete it if it can help users doing some research to know if they can buy from them.
    It's a scam site, don't use it.

    I'm sure some users will still use it as if it was advertising :(
    people rarely read all posts from a thread.
