    Maybe try to return to the store if you know when you purchased it, also visa or mastercard can get you any reciept that you need, check your statements.

    For a $200 gaming electronic system, most people will keep the receipt (in case something goes wrong). Buy your devices from Amazon in the future and it automatically saves the receipt, or practice better receipt keeping. Anyways, I doubt you people bought it; y’all are FRAUDULENT, PURJUROUS liars.
