TradeMe Warning Thread???

Postby Defensor » Thu Jul 21, 2005 10:32 am

Its of no doubt that everyone here uses TradeMe to augment their collections.

I've also been noticing that alot of us are having bad experiences - mostly about getting ripped off.

I suggest a new thread where we can tell our stories of what happened and name the usernames of the perpetrators so that other users don't get ripped off as well.

Any thoughts????

It's a good idea, just post it here, and dodgy traders or dealings you've had, just post them here and let us know so we don't have the same mishaps.

I got a bad trader for you. magusprime. Dudes an asshole. Goes around telling stories and yeah man he's an asshole. Some say he calls himself SD or SkyD or something. Dudes a loser. Bad trader all the way.


Actually I haven't had a bad trade yet. But I'm sure I will some day.

Oh yeah. I am magusprime or something on TM. it is that name, just don;t remember if there is spacing or anything in it. Its been year since I created it, I'm forgetful. :?

I'll go 1st,

GAMEGOD and IAMANDYSHAN

Both backed out on my auctions. IAMANDYSHAN never got in touch, GAMEGOD backed out at the last moment saying he didn't have the cash. I've checked his feedback and he's done it multiple times. Done it to Iceaura too. But he's still out there bidding on TF related stuff so if he ever bids on your stuff, prepare for the possibility of him backing out.

Man! Another trader who failed to get in contact.

50 Cent

(hmm any relation to the rapper?) won a fish tank off me and never got in touch - checked his feedback and he's got so many -ves from people he's defrauded, I'm glad I was the seller in this case. His membership's now been disabled.

http://www.trademe.co.nz/structure/view ... er=1140435

He took approx 4 weeks to pay $10 for a couple of auctions and then I never got the money (even though I posted the knockoffs) for the others!! $15 seriously what a loser!

BAD TRADERS

Postby Trypticon » Tue May 09, 2006 5:17 pm

Hi guys. I am clueless inauckland. I am PROBABLY known for selling them expensive on trademe. But I never rip a person off. I do sell what I say I have. If anyone intends to by from EBAY I have a list of bad traders - downright bloodly liars. I get sent some real crap now and again. PAYPAL offers little protection unless you do not get the item. If you get it and it is nto quite right there is almost nothing you can really do which I find frustrating.

I have not purchased stuff from trademe (transformers) but it is good to see people keeping this topic up for comment.
