rip-off ebay seller [japanrarehunter]

Recommended Posts

be careful, this bad ebay seller, "japanrarehunter"

this seller has several ebay accounts for shill-bids. one of them is "mr.kim78"

look the bid history of mr.kim78

 

http://cgi6.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?View...ted=1&all=1

 

when last day of any auction, this rip-off seller bid on his own auctions using the account mr.kim78 if the price is still low.

 

for example, look a GNR auction from his previous auctions

the second high bidder "k***m ( private )" is mr.kim78

 

i found he is now selling some stuffs :

and found he is already bidding on his own items using mr.kim78.

the current high bidder k***m ( private ) is him. :fuckchops:

I've bought from him before without incident......but I guess that really doesn't mean a whole lot if he is driving up the bids on a few items.....

I hate the way Ebay hides the identities of bidders, and makes us guess/figure out who it is.

 

As shown in this thread, it's almost like they encourage the bidding up of items......

 

Hmmmm... I guess they WOULD make a little more $$$ that way....

 

Very curious.... :screwy:

What an a**hole seller! Now these kind of sellers should be thrown of Egay and then give them lifetime suspension. On the other hand Egay probably don't care as long as they get their fee of the auctions...

 

Bastards! :2up: (both of them)

That's the whole problem. Ebay wants its fees.

I buy from him from time to time and I just won an auction from him yesterday, I've never had a problem.

Did he bid against you with his shill bidding identity?

I don't think the point is that you will have a problem getting your CDs, the point is the guy is bidding his own CDs so you will end up paying what he wants you to pay for it if you do win it (because he is bidding on it too to jack the price up to what he wants to sell it for).

I wonder if that is the bloke I bought 'Cats In Boots - Demonstration' off earlier this year.

I didn't win the auction, but I did recevie a 2nd chance offer.

 

I remeber thinking it was a little suss at the time and looked to see if it was a shill bidder. From memory everything looked okay.

 

Maybe it was a different seller, but that name looks very familiar.

it would be better somebody (won any item from him) leave negative feedback with such comment about his shill-bids activity.

i'd like to do that, but when i told him about his shill-bids before, he blocked my account. :christmas:

of course, it is possible he has multiple copies of any item. but if the winnner of any item is mr.kim78 (or it is shown with k***m), it means he tried to rip you off.

 

his previous seller id is rarehunter78 :

 

http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...id=rarehunter78

 

it seems his birth year is 1978. :crazy:

 

and i am sure he was suspended by ebay because of his shill-bid activity. it seems he learned from previous experience how he can continue shill-bids without ebay suspension as he uses other paypal account / other computer when he sign in mr.kim78.

It all seems so easy to cheat ..... <_<

 

I bought a CD from this guy a few years ago and everything seemed ok - also the price -, but unfortunately I can't check anymore if this mr.kim78 was involved as well.

Then I was suppose to win this auction. I'm going to reply to him and ask him what is up and see if he will sell to me. Can the seller see what everyone's high bid is?

And you should have won it at $36.01!

 

Why doesn't that d---head just put a reserve price on everything, instead of going through this sham?

Here's an interesting article concerning shill bidding and other Egay problems. It is a long read but interesting. At the end there's a heap of other links analyzing Egay.

    • I got a nice chance to chat with Jona Tee back in May at MRF5 in Chicago and funny enough, he said the same thing when I was asking him if they had started working on the next album and what the direction might be.  He said he wanted to make an in-your-face, kick ass melodic hard rock album. He had also said that they had a bunch of songs ready to go and were hoping to start recording toward the end of 2018 but tour plans were probably going to push recording off until the spring.  He said they were aiming to have the next album out by the end of 2019 and that they couldn't afford to take so much time off like they did between TDTW and ITGU.  He commented that while a couple guys in the band have other sources of income, some guys only have the band so they need the band to be working. Can't wait!
    • Some interesting comments by Erik on his thoughts about "Into the Great Unknown" according to a recent interview with AOR Watchtower http://aorwatchtower.blogspot.com/2018/10/entrevista-com-erik-gronwall.html The next album was "Into The Great Unknown" , released last year. Undoubtedly, it is HEAT's most experimental work to date. What was different while composing the album that sets it apart from others, musically? Erik Grönwall: I think the big difference was that we did not spend as much time together as we did while working on the album and even while writing material. We were all spending time with other people in the middle and I think that somehow influenced the compositions. I honestly do not like "Into The Great Unknown" , I think we could have done something better ... but it was something we needed to do. I believe you already have some material being worked on for the new album. How would you define the musical direction of what is coming? Erik Grönwall: No antics. Hard & Heavy ...
    • I agree the mixing/production leaves a little to be desired, the 'busy' sound is a fair critique, catchy tunes though
    • Agreed,although to be honest Im enjoying Midnite City so much that I have sorta passed this by since I got it.
    • Good album, the comments above are right on the money.  If you liked the debut this picks up where that one left off, but with a fuller sound.  My favorites are probably the first two promo tracks along with "Life Ain't Like This On the Radio" and "Until the End".  But I'd be hard pressed to point out a song that I didn't enjoy listening to.
    • The second song is pretty good melody wise but there's something lacking in the production department. Too rough, almost sounds like a demo. The guitar sound is pretty awful.  Don't like the production at all, sounds too 'busy'.
    • Yeah, that's pretty cool. Haven't thought about these guys for a while, but I hope an album is on the way. 
    • not listened properly yet but sounds a bit thin compared to Midnite City
