British customs have reportedly seized fake Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite video game consoles that came with potentially dangerous power adapters. There is no information whether the batch was large, but a fraud investigation company indicated that such gaming devices may be purchased online at discount price.

"At best these consoles would have led to disappointment on Christmas morning. At worst they could have caused serious harm or injury," said Pamela Rogers, from HM Revenue and Customs, reports Reuters news-agency.

According to the report, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite portable video game consoles were bought online for about £40 ($58.9) instead of £100 ($147.3), which is the official Nintendo price for Britain.

"We are asking all concerned parents to be diligent -- when a bargain seems too good to be true, it often is," said Mike Rawlinson, managing director of Nintendo's fraud investigation company ELSPA.
