[Discussion] I got ripped off of 200$ worth of cards :'(


Zye Throwin
So, this is my first post on this site and also the first forum I have been on, so I'm new to this stuff but I will talk about how I got ripped off on 200$ pokemon cards, This kid in my summer school had a tin of pokemon cards full of V pokemon and he said he needed to get rid of them, and me seeing an amazing opportunity to expand my pokemon collection I buy em! So fast forward to me spending about 3 hours putting them in my Pokemon card price tagger (TGC app on Play Store) I am happy because I made about 50$~ off of that purchase, so I started selling them and about 3 of them came back to me and told me they were fake... Now they came back to me about 1 month later so the money they gave me IS GONE! IDK what I'm supposed to do! They were purple back V cards, how do I get my money back?!


They were fake if they had purple backs, in which case they had the right to a refund. Best you can do is try to get a refund yourself from that kid from summer school.

No, you're gonna face ME first!
Yeah he's right, pokemon cards always have the blue back with the pokeball, although japanese card backs look a little different.
