BEWARE SCAM EBAYER - streetsavvy123

Be very careful of this ebayer. He has been reported as Shill bidding on his own listings, and is very untrustworthy.

A group of us on Reddit have been discussing him and his activities.

BEWARE of his current listing - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ultimaker-2-3D-printer-/181683650912?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item2a4d308160

Just thought I would let everyone know.

Many people on eBay auto-bids and thats is not enugh to tell he/she is a scammer. On the artcile you point out the item is a buy-now offser so I cannot see the way to auto-bid. On the other hand he/she has a good feedback selling the same kind of artciles. Cannot see the 'scam' anywhere.

He has 100% positive feedback, like emilio2 said it's a "Buy now" item, and your only "proof" of his untrustworthiness is an unknown "group on Reddit".

If his only "crime" is to try and drive the price of his own item up, I don't see a problem. It's up to the buyer to decide the price he/she wants to pay in the true spirit of auctions.

Your only activity on the forum is related to Ebay listings or trying to buy a printer cheaper locally. Since you're so worried about scams I'd just recommend that you buy one from a known re-seller and be done with it.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
