i realise I'm only a relative newbie on here (more of a lurker than a poster), but I was wondering if I could get some assistance to clear up a dispute I'm having with a seller on eBay who sold me an Earthbound cart that's turned out to be a bootleg copy.
The following is a photo of the disassembled cart:
I also noticed that the cart was not sitting flush on the side that the NAND IC has been soldered to the cart and that one of the screws had also been stripped bare.
I was alerted to the potential issue by another eBay member who found out they had purchased a bootleg from the same seller and they managed to get their money back, so I don't know why mine hasn't gone through yet. I want to add this thread as a link in my response and would really appreciate some helpful opinions if possible. The seller has sold multiple Earthbound carts with the same description, so it looks like its an ongoing issue.
Thanks in advance :)
