trade me wrong again

Allow me to modify my statement, substituting "abusive" with "aggressive". We've received seven emails from you in two days John, most of them saying the same thing. I replied three times asking you to put your side of the story in writing. That hasn't happened. You say that TM disabled your account...

Re: Is this a scam? iPhone 6S

Yes the auction in link above seems to have been removed. However, here is a link to their other auctions for similar products. Two of the iPhone auctions were withdrawn by TM, while this one was withdrawn by the seller, no doubt after TM had a word with him. Does anyone knbow what would happen to ...

Major skimming scam - Paraparaumu

If you've used a KiwiBank ATM at the Coastlands Mall ATM in Paraparaumu between August 16-22, or in September and November, check your bank statements now. There's been a major skimming scam operating and hundreds of customers are affected.

Re: TM raises charges for Real Estate Agents

The Commerce Commission is prosecuting most of our big real estate companies for colluding to pass on TM listing fees in full to clients, and pocketing TM's fee discounts. Here's a list of the companies being prosecuted. Barfoot and Thompson Harcourts Group LJ Hooker Ray White Bayley Corporation (se...

Re: Is this a scam? iPhone 6S

We had a similar case a few years back where someone thought they'd found a source of cheap iPhones, took the money in advance and sent most of it offshore. There were no iPhones and a lot of people were ripped off as a result. TradeMe (on paper at least) do not allow items like this to be listed wh...

Cheryl Fay Takimoana - TradeMe fraud

I admit it... I clicked on an almost misleading Stuff headline entitled, Marlborough woman convicted in Blenheim District Court after not paying for item purchased on a TradeMe auction . While the headline was full of promise, the actual story was rather brief -- here's the full text. Cheryl Fay Tak...

Re: Malaysian Trademe/Paypal Car Scam

It seems that vehicle scams are not only targeting sellers. The Wairarapa Times-Age reports that a local man narrowly avoided being ripped off for $16,500 on TradeMe when he responded to a listing for a food caravan. Luckily he was smart enough to do his research and learned that the bank account de...

Re: trade me wrong again

The Czech service you mentioned is a fake email generator. It's designed to produce fake headers and misleading info. Should.send him the date one day before anyway so he turns up and wastes his time. You'd be best advised to concentrate on winning your case and just ignore those messages. They're m...

Forsyth Barr - TM results will be underwhelming

Forsyth Barr warns TM investors to "expect an underwhelming first-half result in February.'' They say that TM's historic practice of achieving earnings growth through endless price increases may be coming to an end. We do not see competition replacing Trade Me's market place and classified overall p...

Re: Use a payWave credit card? Then read this

We're not surprised to read about PayWave fraud on a regular basis. After all, a stolen card will usually serve up numerous sub-$80 purchases before it's blocked by the bank. It's a petty criminal's dream. Today ANZ has launched its goMoney wallet -- another tap-and-go system which oddly, is restric...
