This one is interesting: http://www.trademe.co.nz/structure/0246-0485-4011-/auction-52954473.htm Refers users to a website where they can check the validity of their items. The site seems valid, but have a look at this thread from their newsroom: http://www.eglusa.com/eglcustomsban.html If it's not ...

Ebook Seller & Drop Shipper - pimpintrade

50 listings, and 8 ebook auctions providing a list of drop-shippers so ... yes, you guessed it - his other 42 auctions are dropshipping. He claims OVERNIGHT DELIVERY ... and "available in stock however, depending on the size and colour/style you require we may need to order in a pair for you. This w...

They are. Especially in the wrong hands.

Fortunately they aren't easy to get shipped, as they are officially dangerous/hazardous goods.

I've CW'd all t-bird1's plasma tvs

They're clearly not in the country, and it looks like a scam: "50% Payment should be made as deposit in 3 working days after the auction closed Shippment will take 10 working days to arrive in NZ after the deposit has been identified." http://www.trademe.co.nz/structure/0124-0060-1344-/auction-53071...

And this guy has to take the cake for Ts & Cs ...

I particularly like his returns policy: "Goods are only refundable within 3 days after being received and 10% of the goods sold price will be charged as restock fee." and ... "No matter what reason if the item(s) return to us. Buyer need pay Delivery cost again for re-ship the item (except we write ...

Does this guy look dodgy to you? carwhore

15 low value trades (all buys, no sells), all in the last month, and mostly for faulty or broken electronics & components. Now, he has 27 auctions listed, all for brand new, mostly high value electronics, including plasma and lcd tvs. Photos and ads all look like they came off websites. http://www.t...

Done. Not sure what the response times are like on the weekend though, and most of them close tomorrow. No bids yet though.

Flares - aat77

This might be a bending of the rules, as Fireworks are on the banned list. Should these be CW'd?

There's about a dozen listings.

He wouldn't have answered

I told him (in a non-abusive way) that Iwas going to file a complaint with the Queensland office of Fair Trading. He never replied to that either. You're right - it's too old, and I wrote it off to a bad lesson in life some time ago .... just still a little bitter .... :-x The bigger problem with Au...

Yep that's him

Email address he was using when I dealt with him was:

John - Trademe82 <trademe82@tackletrade.com>

Not sure if this is still valid or .... since I haven't had a reply for a year now!!!

Is this legal?

Sell and envelope and give away free party pills :evil:

It's downright irresponsible.

Check out auction #52965255 - there's a heap of them.

Yes, I watch him too.

He's gone from digital video to digital still to web-cams to tooth whiteners to internet TV.

This is who he really is:

Finally someone's noticed this rip-off artist!

:!: Check out my user id - need I say any more? This guy has been around for ages, buying bulk quantities of cheap, low cost, low quality goods and taking many innocent and genuine TM buyers for a ride. I can provide you with all his details if anyone's interested, as despite his desire to stay as a...
