Their reply to my complaint is very strange, they seem to think this whole thing is okay, but at the end of the day I should have a box mailed to me. Still, I think it’s a classic bait and switch Ebay scam Cheapgamestuff is running no matter the explanation. Buyer Beware.

Dear urbanfansales,

It is new for sure. The box that it was in was crushed and in bad shape so I had one of my staff pack it inside one of our other packages that we make to protect the cable.
My name is KeithI own cheapgamestuff and Innovation the company that makes the cable. I have 5000 of these in stock if you need more. I only have staff send the ones on ebay that have bad packaging that we cannot send to stores hence the very low price. The cable is actually being sold to you for about 50cents.
That cable has never been used though I assure you. If it is found defective we will replace it for you. Let me know if you have any other problems.
You can feel free to mention my name on any website if you choose to , no problem.

Dear cheapgamestuff,your auction had several pictures of the box, undamaged and in your item specifics “new” is described as “in original packaging”. this listing is not accurate. i either want the packaging in same condition as pictured sent to me, or a refund plus return shipping to send this back. i will not pay to ship this back and will file a case otherwise.

Dear cheapgamestuff,1 is fine. Thank You.

“New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable). Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. See the seller’s listing for full details” – You listings should notate that the original packaging may not be included, or even the nature of your business so people aren’t disappointed like I was. If you send the box I’ll be satisfied and feel the item matched the description.

Dear urbanfansales,I can send you the packaging if you like, you already got the cable. . How many boxes do you want? We print them in our factory here. Is 1 good or would you like a few extra?
The cable sent to you was simply taken out of the packaging because the person here felt the cardboard would not protect it.
From now on I will instruct people to ship them only in the cardboard packaging and not repack them in plastic to protect it.
