No doubt, the release of Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition has made the world go crazy. However, with the limited stock of the console, there is a new threat in the circle. Lately, Nintendo took the initiative to warn its customers about the Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition stock scam.
As mentioned earlier, the Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition is a smaller version of the original console introduced to North America in 1985. Right from its release day [Nov 11], the console has become a global craze. It’s been reported that some of the major outlets sold the piece in just less than 10 minutes.
As we know, if the demand is greater than the supply, there is a shortage. With only a sparse supply of Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition, customers are worried they would not get a chance to experience this console. Nintendo has been languid in responding to the demand, stated a relevant source. Many customers consider that as an intentional move by Nintendo to garner attention, knowing that it could restock before the holiday shopping season was over.
On the other hand, to keep the customers calm, Nintendo stated that it is sparing no effort “to keep up with consumer demand.”
Meanwhile, many shady websites have started to pop up, offering pre-orders for Nintendo Mini NES Classic. Nintendo was able to spot this fraudulent activity and subsequently warned buyers. Although stocks have not been updated since Black Friday, that doesn’t mean one should let the Internet run roughshod over the truth. So, don’t heed anything that claims the availability of the Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition pre-order.
According to Nintendo Blog, common fraudulent activities such as phishing websites and virus infection cause such crimes, according to NE. Nintendo suggested to its customers to be cautious and go only for authentic websites like Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, Target, GameStop, Walmart, etc. The company is now worried the buyers may fall prey to fake websites that say they can meet the demand of Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition.
Features of Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition:

The piece features games like ‘Super Mario Bros.‘, ‘Donkey Kong’,’The Legend of Zelda’, ‘Tecmo Bowl’ and so on. Plus, Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition is budget friendly.
