Pirated Garmin TOPO maps and Non NZ plugs

Made the mistake of buying a Garmin cycle computer off TM. When it arrived it quickly became obvious it was shipped from overseas. The plug was non NZ and I the supplied adaptor made no mention of being up to any NZ standards. On closer inspection it was also obvious that the supplied TOPO maps were...

Re: 26 May - Foreign plugs banned

About 2 years ago had a plug adaptor on an item catch fire. It was a 'starlight' in our daughter's bedroom bought by a family member. So yes I can see a safety issue.

Quite interested because today had an email from TM to tell me that they are not interested in people selling items with adaptors.

Re: Multiple ID trader/shill bidder - Jaytee1962, ireba1234

Same old MO in this feedback for ireba1234 - Disgusting, rude Trader! Admittedly I was 2 days late contacting her and profusely apologised after her 1st email and set a date to make payment. The response I got that she refers to as 'Polite' reminders was that she would be sending her Sons AND his ma...

Re: kitty8u - Scammer selling Blacklisted Iphones

The photos in the 2 auctions with red feedbacks have been disabled, I wonder if that is significant. Still find them if you know where to look.

And TM do nothing as usual. Although I am sort of glad, I'm enjoying the Q&As.

Dealer or not?

Interesting thread on TMD - Bought car of dealer in auck.

Person bought a car and unhappy about it's condition. They claim it's for personal use but as someone points out they appear to buy/bid on and list multiple cars.
