Postby m0lsx » Wed May 03, 2017 7:39 pm

I have just seen the following on ebay..
RADIO_TRADER_IRELAND is selling out dated frequency database which is a page grab copy of AJP's website for £19.99 :shocker: :shocker: :shocker:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SCANNING-FREQUENCYS-UK-IRL-RADIO-TRADER-IRELAND-/222175651162?hash=item33bab3655a:g:nYcAAOSweWVXeVqT

Second data base that he probably does not have the copyright of, but that he is selling for £19.99.

maybe we should do a scumbag seller of the week feature, like the completely unnecessary podcast from youtube.

I wonder how he would react if somebody buys it, photocopies the photocopies and then returns them for a full refund - just paying the return postage. Perfectly legit under the ebay rules.

The problem is ebay has rules, but they only apply the when it suits. They allegedly, for example, ban the sale of radio surveillance, Bugging, devices. But they are openly on sale & try reporting them. They do nothing.
The same with fake items.
I brought something sometime ago that showed a secondhand item. When it was delivered it was a cheap copy with a photocopy of the real instructions shown in the advert.
I tried to complain, I got my money back, but the seller is still selling the same secondhand item over & over again & despite complaints from more than one person, me & a friend who have both brought & got our money back. Ebay still does nothing.

I buy quite a bit of Chinese product for my entertainment business - audio and lighting mostly. I then get lots of offers from the various suppliers and if they are interesting, I often buy them just to be nosey. I doubt anyone would be interested here, but I just bought a sample of a Shure Digital wireless mic. These are £600 plus, and this one as a sample was offered to me at £50, so I bought it. In fact, it is easily worth maybe £200, if it wasn't badged as a Shure. However - it's nowhere near what it is supposed to be.
Digital - nope, good old analogue
Condenser microphone - nope, a reasonable, but not exciting dynamic
Infrared programming from receiver - oddly, yes - it actually does this.

Diversity receiver - nope. Pulling it apart reveals only one front end, and the two antenna sockets just combine, they don't switch at all.

If anyone's interested, I can always start a new topic and post some pics - but I doubt it's really of interest here, despite being a radio!

It could be ebay's next common counterfeit product although they also sent me a pair of Shure SE215 in-ear headphones and these look perfect. Identical to my genuine ones, no spelling mistakes, no cheap plastic, proper instructions, rather nice box and protective case, identical to the originals - BUT - they sound terrible. I bet loads of these will appear on ebay too!

I contacted this guy some time ago, He was listing an Icom r75 with DSP option fitted. But looking at the picture, no DSP on display :huh: He changed the listing after I informed him..Be careful folks....

Welcome to the forum.
He is one of the ebay regulars selling secondhand items at prices that would make even Radioworld look reasonable. But Scott as Adams observed...,“Always remember that as long as other people are gullible, there's no limit to what you can achieve. ”
