BEWARE SCAM EBAYER - streetsavvy123

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
