  • Yahoo Auctions - grouses and warnings

    Dear Folks,

    Just a piece of news that i extracted from the Straits Times Today.

    NET AUCTION SCAM

    I personally had a deal with her, but she paid up. For those that were not so fortunate, she got what she deserved.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I guess this is a good lesson for those who is out to con people! Being jailed for that few hundred dollars, is it worth it? :roll:

      What's her yahoo id? There was a scam at flowerpod too by this person called mooku. Not sure if it's the same person.

        Hey Gal,

        Not a problem...just wanted to keep CC current

        the amount is definately much more than what is stated in the papers.

        Its not up to us to say if going to jail was worth it, probably she wanted some attention. we wouldnt know.

        But i know its goin to be a lot tougher penetrating into the auctions market.

            Pretty dumb huh, since the winners would have her bank acc number. Did she thought they were all gonna just let it go? Or did she thought that her bank acc no is not traceable back to her? :huh:

                I remember reading the negative ratings for that metalricebowl75 ID! So glad the victims managed to band together and bring the fraudster to justice!

                  Maybe someone could state here " How to bring the fraudster to justice"?

                    My thoughts exactly. Very silly of her. I mean it's so easy to trace in Singapore with a bank account number isn't it.

                    Arghh.. this reminds me of my MUA swaplifter.

                      hopefully this will warn other would be frauders and they wouldn't even think of it!

                      its silly how some people on yahoo would try to cheat especially when they give out their bank accounts and all :roll:

                        Some doesn't cheat you but may send you inferior products that doesnt match the description. After awhile, you'll notice that even when their rating is pretty high, they change nickname and began to sell their stuffs all over again until it saturated with a few negative comment, they start allover again.
