I need someone to buy me something, have it shipped to them, then forward to me. This is from a very reputable retailer that most of us have purchased from in the past. I've just purchased too many items from them and they blocked me. The order costs $145 + tax, and I will pay that amount upfront + actual shipping to me (once determined) + $10 for the service. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Never returned anything to them. Not sure how you came up with that one.

Well I have never heard of any business blocking someone for buying too much stuff from them. Don't make sense tbh

LRG is known to do it. It happens if you bypass purchase limits and they catch it.

I'm willing to do this, sent a pm.

Nintendo doesn't like scalpers. Artificially depletes supply and makes their supply chain look unable to meet demand.


They're trying to do the intended customers favors to get this stuff into the hands that actually want them at retail cost without the eBay wallet rape

Either way it seems kind of stupid for them to ban a lifetime customer for trying to place a second order of something. And, it's not the first time I bought extra stuff from Nintendo over the years.

I mean if they just wanted money they wouldn't have blocked you. They would tell you their remaining inventory. So clearly they have a reason for doing what they're doing, and it's likely tied to system prices on aftermarkets and angry customers not being served.

I think your reasoning is missing some key foreknowledge/context and is wrong because of that, but I don't really care enough to fill in those gaps because I didn't come here to discuss my situation with Nintendo or speculate why it may have happened. I'm just here trying to get people to buy items and ship them to me.

Convenient. wink

Carry on! Just satiating a query with a hypothesis.

I agree with lain21us on this one. It's generally a bad idea to judge people based solely on assumptions about their situation. If he wanted to share his private details publicly, he would do so.

No one's being judged, and nobody's asking him to share any information. This was purely a discussion entertaining the query as to why another company would decide dealing with a particular person behaving a certain way was no longer in their best interest. I've dropped it, Lain's dropped it, let it be dropped, and help him out if you're feeling like helping him out. It's cool!

Judgment exudes through my screen once your message appears on it.

The details are that Nintendo's store was closed for COVID for a while, and when it closed all of these items were in stock. They went out of stock everywhere else while the store was closed, and they recently opened. You made this statement:

"Nintendo doesn't like scalpers. Artificially depletes supply and makes their supply chain look unable to meet demand."

Personally I feel there was no actual evidence that Nintendo ever cared at all about supply chain issues, public perception, or availability of this backstock of refurbished consoles that they don't seem to make anymore. They didn't suddenly "produce" a bunch of refurbished units of old consoles just to make the public happy. Their store closed when these items were still available everywhere, and when it opened the items were still in stock at the same price.

This seems to be in direct conflict to what you said. I am not an adversarial person, plus I'm busy and owe you nothing, so I chose to simply inform you honestly that "your reasoning is missing some key foreknowledge/context and is wrong because of that". I had information (and a certain perspective based on that information) about the matter that you probably did not, but I really only started this thread for the purpose stated in the OP. I don't really feel a responsibility to explain every aspect of my business and have conversations about those explanations with every random person who wanders into my thread and decides to waste my time. I try to be nice about that, but it just is what it is. So there you go.

okay, lain did NOT drop it

If I'm wrong, I don't get why they won't just unload all their refurb stock on you. Doesn't make any sense to me, and clearly you have no explanation yourself. But obviously we're seeing this two different ways, it's fine.

Pretty much every store has stock limits. Most stores don't just ban people for trying to place an additional order on something. Like, why wouldn't they let me perhaps buy some other item in the future? Why not just block the purchase and that is all, like every other store in the world? It is most likely that I had hit some fraud detection trigger with either their own security team or the security team on the merchant processor's end. These teams prevent fraud totalling millions of dollars, and rarely have to give explanation or take any action in response to a customer inquiry. Personally I feel my purchases from Nintendo were not excessive. First I purchased 2x 3DS XL and 1xSwitch. Then I remembered I wanted the SNES Classics so I got 2 of those. Then I ordered 2 more and I was banned. If their definition of a scalper worthy of blacklisting is someone who tries to buy the maximum of one item twice, that is obviously ludicrous. This was also a new account, and the first time I ever used this address or this payment method. So I suspect that perhaps I purchased the items too fast (three orders in under 5 minutes or something like that), or some combination of factors involving that, the total of the items, and possibly other factors I am not privy to.

Was it coming from a new IP address or the same one with the new account? Maybe they saw you as trying to circumvent their purchasing limits. Can't imagine why you'd be tripping any fraud monitors.

Actually there's a thought too; did you use a VPN? Even though they're different geo locations you can have like, a dozen people coming from one vector.
