Well spotted!

 

Just as a matter of interest, the bxxxxxxx1 link you provide takes one straight to the unscrupulous fellow's page. Aha! So that's who it is who wants to trade behind BoB's back...

Some don't fly under the radar... They stroll like Johny Walker with crocs on... (Spelling?) I saw this ( Question & Answer below) and since I bought from this seller - rather wrote a letter to him - via open Q & A. I slightly altered the given address...

 

Please Remember: If the seller is asking you to contact them directly in order to bypass the bidorbuy system, please note that this is against the bidorbuy Terms and Conditions. bidorbuy monitors the Questions and Answers on items and reserves the right to take appropriate action if a violation of terms is detected.

 

Q: Hi Interested in this product - I go on holiday tomorrow and need it urgently - can this be arranged (I can collect from your store)

Regards John - Asked by JohnGS (2)13 Dec 11:25 AHi John

 

A: This can be arranged, We are situated at Unit 5A, Kickbut- Junction, Conn Beyers and close to moneymaking street, next to Daily Honey-mommies Regards PartStore;13 Dec 11:59

 

My letter and his reply...

 

PartStore (127 ) has answered your question on the item - Apple iPod Nano 8GB 3rd Generation - Black.

 

Your question was; Hi! Do you know about this - what BOB warns us Buyers?!

 

"Please Note: Trying to contact the seller directly and thereby bypassing the bidorbuy system, is against bidorbuy Terms and Conditions. bidorbuy monitors the Questions and Answers on items and reserves the right to take appropriate action if a violation of terms is detected."

Kins regards

 

UPDATED: 23 Dec 18:54

 

Kind regards - missed the d and hit the s (LOL)

 

PartStore - The answer is;

 

Yup, as far as I know, it's always been there. I guess they are just trying to keep everything in the system, which is fair. Lots of buyers try get around BoB and sellers try get out of paying comms.

 

Have a blessed Christmas! Kind regards, Brad

This type of behavior runes the super environment that BoB has grown to be over the last decade. I think we must all just stick together and report this kind of behavior asap!

Boing!!! Goes a spring... Thinking out ways NOT to pay a person and then cunningly applying it...; after you agreed to pay for a service, clearly costing that party money too, stays theft. It's a morality thing...

Questions & Answers for...:

 

hi, ,below is a link, place an order to get my details. you dont have to pay for the keyring but you will get my details. anything you decide to buy will need to go through BoB... :blink1:...

 

OK, CHECK THIS OUT... NEVER BE WITHOUT MY INFO AGAIN...;-)

I simply cannot see ANY logic in that "offer..." Why? What is the Q & A section for anyway? To get product etc. information... The forums are there to chat etc...; all you want...

 

You don't have to pay anything... LOL! What if I decide to "buy" all 1000 of them? Who pays BOB?

 

Maybe this is in the wrong thread... But the idea opens a backdoor for some sellers... I'm sure the seller is honest. It all starts with sincere help...

 

PS 10 X R2 units to Graaff-Reinet...- shipping will be R48-50... Naa.. I'll just buy - not pay... Shipping? It's bone dry there man...

 

(OK, I know what it means! :-) )

My understanding is that its perfectly acceptable to do business transactions via pm as long as contact details are not exchanged and obviously the transaction should go through bob.

So, if you do not contact Jock first via email, your bid gets deleted? ZAR? LOL!! Is that like in; only Kruger pounds? Sounds like another local seller shouting; "International shipping!!!" Duh! LOL!
