The item was an original gameboy game, in the original box. Apparently some asshole in the US decided that their official extortionist pricing is a "right" and that you are a Bad Guy if you buy the thing cheaply in the US, then sell it second hand over here. (Well don't sell it cheap over there then!) Bastards. Fools. Assholes. Greedy capitalist swine (I've been reading too much Orwell lately).
The hilarious part of course is that I bought the thing some months ago. Needless to say that "we strongly urge you not to complete the transaction" just makes me laugh and show them the finger.
