Yes! I have a problem with misrepresenting sales like that!

 

And now I've gotten a negative rating from this guy (or girl) - while we are still discussing his (her?) sale tactics by e-mail!

 

Pretty low blow & maybe indicative of the the seller's morals and ethics? Would be VERY wary of doing business with them again, if ever...

 

And it's people like that that can give BoB a bad name - so yeah, what can I say? Thinking of calling it quiets and never buying or selling on BoB again...

I love icy's calling the old phones "poegaai"! Most appropriate.

Jip, pretty classic!

 

On a serious not - how does one cancel your BoB membership? I've had enough of BoB's protection of certain sellers over others & think it's time to move on...

I like the arrogance in the first paragraph....

Q: Why dont you start your phones at R1 anymore?

A: The answer is simple. Due to the lack of bids we have decided not to do R1 auctions anymore. Most of the buyers nowadays want to pay nothing and expect to received top Quality items. If you want a quality item you need to be willing to pay a reasonable price. We have therefore put all the phones on Buy It Now or Best offer. This will encourage the BARGAIN HUNTERS out there to start paying more for an item or simply go without.

Hi chris2_0,

 

You send an email to communitywacth@bidorbuy.co.za with your request.

 

Thank you.

Thanks!

 

Here's the last I'll say on the matter - if there was any doubt that Blackberry4U and Calton Phones are the same company - please check the "legal" letter from the owner of Calton, for a transaction I did with Blackberry4U!

 

Anybody from BoB reading this?

Man, doesn't these guys ever stop? Another one - this time threatening me with ITC for 5 years...

 

Man, I know BoB's rules are - bid on it and you have to pay for it, but c'mon - this was seriously misrepresented!

 

& BoB is curiously very quite on this! Why I wonder?

Hi Chris

 

I would send a complaint to community watch regarding this letter. They are threatening you with something that a) They cant carry out and b) over a misrepresented item. I saw in an earlier post that Cuan said he would be addressing this seller as Bob management werent happy either.

 

From personal experience I find bidorbuy very transparent and when there is an issue they do address it.

Hi chris2_0,

 

It is common knowledge that they are business partners.

 

Hi All

 

There is a link between the 2 accounts - it is Caltonphone's business partner and has been verified in terms of the details registered, so it is not the same person.

 

Kind regards

Cuan

I am afraid Cuan is on leave and will only be back on Monday. I understand from Bennet, the ratings were removed and the matter is settled, should you require anymore assistance, please contact communitywatch@bidorbuy.co.za

 

Thank you.

Hi All

We will be addressing the wording and other issues with both sellers, as we also do not agree with this.

 

Kind regards

Cuan

HI ADMIN

The seller blackberry4you still has his own wording and selling policy regarding the items he sells which is in contravention with bob terms and conditions-CUAN did say he would address it but currently listed items show no change yet-Please inform CUAN to follow up as this type of selling will give bob a bad name.

Sorry, one more!

 

Maybe not - just saw that the negative rating from Blackberry4u / CaltonPhone world has been removed...

 

Don't think they want to be seen as the bad guy! But here's the proof:

 

You have received a Negative rating from Blackberry4you (161 rating3.gif) verifieduser.gif with the comment

Buyer pulled out. Will file a SNC to recover our fees.

The rating relates to the purchase

Hello Chris - no, I for one am not enjoying this indaba. I'm sorry to hear, though, that you want to leave BoB. That is such a pity and I hope you'll sleep on your decision!

I had a look - that's not Calton or BB4U's doing - OK, not entirely! I haven't updated my contact details after being retrenched last year, so 10 to one BoB wanted to get in contact with me, but couldn't...

Then it should be easy to have it reversed if you want to - simply phone them & provide them with the info they need?

The emails from the supplier border on extortion!

They're certainly trying to put out fires......by wagging a finger at the "innocent" party who was mislead by false advertising. False advertising remains false and this should not be allowed. Their account should surely have been disabled until the issue was sorted out.

Hi Miss Jewels,

 

The matter was handled by community watch, to the best of their ability, as the "innocent" party, as you put it, does not have valid contact details. Payment was not made so there was no need to disable the seller for this transaction. The appropriate action was taken regarding this listing, both ratings were removed and no sale took place. What is transpiring now is between the seller and the buyer in private emails.

 

I am locking this thread for Cuan's attention next week, regarding the other issues brought up.

 

Thank you all.

 

p.s. Emails are not allowed to be posted on the forums as per the rules.

Hi All

 

Glad to see everyone is behaving... not! Geez I go away for a few weeks and all hell breaks loose...

 

The security team will be handling this, and an ultimatum sent to the seller in question regarding descriptions, advertising etc. He will have until tomorrow to rectify listings or they will be removed and his selling status disabled.

 

Thank you

Cuan
