I'm staring at it. Everything in that seller's store is $14. New seller no feedback. Smells like fraud.

Same price as the Zooloretto and Ghostbusters deal. 14.00 for the product 4.50 for shipping. Fake shipping numbers, long delivery date, so you cant file a correct claim till a month or so longer. Dont waste your time. The seller will be shutdown in a couple of days.

Click on the user's name and then their "storefront".

It looks like they have 41,474 items posted all priced at $14.00 plus $4.50 shipping.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

1. Take your $18.50.
2. Put it in an interest-bearing savings account.
3. Wait one month.
4. Withdraw your $18.51.

Congratulations, it's a hotter deal.

Have you seen interest rates these days...We're lucky if it doesn't decrease in value...

Start filing your A-to-Z claim now because you will never see the game. Like others have posted it's a scam to get money out of Amazon. Seller will take a bunch of orders, withdrawn the funds, close their store, and stick Amazon with the bill. You'll get your money refunded but you'll end up waiting over a month to deal with it.

Please don't post "deals" that are clearly a scam. All you're doing is helping to encourage fake sellers to keep trying this. NOBODY will be getting this deal. As has been shown on all the other $18.50 "deals", it's just a scam to get quick money from Amazon.

They're bad, but not that bad. I'd say two month at the amazing rate of .3%

I reported it to Amazon last week. Figured it was Z-Man counterfeits, as they do exist. Regardless, Amazon was notified.

Yeah, I saw that and came to the same conclusion. Too good to be true.

Pass. Whoever jumps on it, let us know how it goes.

It's come up in all the other recent threads about the same kind of scam, but there is no actual product on the other end of the transaction. The production cost and shipping for a counterfeit version of Pandemic Legacy would still be high, and if you're going to go to all the trouble of counterfeiting then why bother lowballing on price? If there was a real counterfeit product being shipped they could easily charge $30 and more likely $40. Every scam is looking for maximum return on investment but the actual scheme at play here is the best return possible - something for nothing. The consumer's imagination does all the work for you.

I get what you are saying but I'm not sure who should be the final arbiter of that if not the buyer. There's another thread about Constantinopolis from FFG on sale for $9.99 from an Amazon third party. It retailed for $59.95. One might conclude that the deal is too good to be true but there seems to be no indications of that.

Post it, let the buyers decide.

Irrelevant comparison, as Constantinopolis has been out of print forever and was never highly rated like PL, in terms of actual ratings or in number of ratings. Makes sense that it would be liquidated.

It's like the dollar store, but $14 instead of $1, and also you never receive anything.

The way this comes across to me is: "Don't bother to post in hot deals unless you are 100% sure of the pedigree of the game in question, including print status, what its rating is, how many reviews it has, the proportion of good reviews to bad, etc., etc., etc. Because unless you thoroughly investigate each and every one of those parameters, you run the risk of disappointing the readers of this forum, all of whom know much more about the board game market than you do." I'm pretty sure that wasn't your intent, but, given the history of this forum, I wouldn't put it past some people.

Buyers need to make their own valuation of individual deals and no size will ever fit all, especially in this forum. Don't expect a poster to do the work for you.

I get it that the original deal was a scam, and thanks to everyone for pointing that out, but I still think that it's great that it was posted. It became a way to educate the community on ways to spot dodgy offers, and I'm sure a lot of readers are grateful even if they aren't flying to their keyboards to thank everyone.
