This is flat out wrong. If you have an argument to make against something he said, say it. But to make it personal and impugne his character like this is quite gross.

And to do it when you're promoting your own business in a thread with potential customers, that's just not smart.

If you look at my post as a promotion for myself thatís sad I donít need to promote myself

Re: FF
Got this from Amazon...

"Since this item was sent to a freight forwarder, Iím not able to replace or refund it unless we receive valid tracking confirmation that the original item was never received by the freight forwarder. Please send a screenshot of the tracking page from the freight forwarderís official website to freight-forward-lost@amazon.com and indicate if youíd prefer a refund or replacement. You can expect a response within 1-2 business days."

anyone ever contacted freight-forward-lost@amazon.com?
Any reason not to contact them?
HUCA. Chat again.

not sure if this is the right thread but came across something interesting from ed rosenbergs amazon group

"End of buying groups. ďÖ. We took this measure as you were passing Amazon purchase limits and restrictions by paying Amazon Prime customers to make purchases of quantity-limited items on Amazon.Ē"

I wonder, how could amazon have figured out where he sourced his inventory from? Does that mean they linked the ship to address and see that other accounts bought for him?

Any smart BG selling on Amazon would not have the Amazon seller address the same as the ship to address for buyers.
@Markmann20 has a different address listed on his Amazon account  ;)

Update. Avoid shipping anything to USA. It's not worth the risk.
Items delivered 35 days ago. No updates. no response on CS for 3 weeks. Not worth dealing with them. They will lose stuff and just ignore you and you won't even know if it's lost. Amazon classifies them as FF so they won't refund you if tracking says delivered.

If anyone has direct contact to owner please PM.
It's only $800 (I don't risk more then I can afford to lose) so even though it did cross my mind, I decided against showing up at his home...
and because I don't live nearby :)
HUCA, use words like "one time exception" and you will get your money.

I don't think he posts here to promote himself. I asked him about it privately so he responded here.
He's very upfront about who he is. unlike some other groups who don't make themselves accessible/reachable if there's issues.

Common sense is not a gift, it is a punishment.
Because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

Every post is either promotion or the opposite, no matter the intention. As CV likes to say, it "paints a picture".

He didn't answer or refute anything, he slandered the person who made the claim.

When Amazon sees hundreds of accounts circumventing item limits and shipping all to same address, while seeing the same buyers with overlapping purchase history, they can narrow it down to sellers that overlap on these items. If Amazon is determined to connect the dots it really isnít hard to do so.

Heís not saying your promoting in the post. However, youíre in this thread to promote yourself, and youíre doing the opposite with your baseless slander. But then again, that seems to be intentional as well

It's an industry which is living on borrowed time. Like I said upthread, I'm shocked it's lasted this long. All retailers, other than Amazon, have already put limitations on the scalability of retail arbitrage. I know that people can order to their house and then send it to the BGs (either living in a tax free state or getting a resellers certificate), but I'd guess that they'd lose most of their buyers at that point.

Thatís a scary reality, because when these businesses fold they might conveniently go bankrupt while owing buyers lots of money. There isnít as much imperative to preserve a reputation if youíre going out of business, especially if the buyers deal with ďthe companyĒ and have no idea who whoís behind it allÖ

Good thing this is all being discussed in a thread where the warning is right there in the title so I am sure everyone is making sure to cover themselves.

The mindset seems to be that if itís a buying group then it isnít reckless. Someone posted a few posts up that they donít risk more than they could afford to lose. Iím afraid that attitude isnít the norm for people buying for these groups.

As long as that address cant be linked to the seller, many sellers sell the "hot" electronics.

I'm some ways the group is even more reckless. If it goes bad c"v or can go bad by millions of dollars with no hope of ever getting paid back.

I'm not understanding then - they're holding the products, what could go wrong?
