If the seller is based in china or the product is not fulfilled by Amazon let the buyer beware he may have to wait/fight for his money back, and the likelihood of it shipping is slim to none.

Who's losing money on it is the question. Is it us or Freddie?

Like I said, I haven't yet figured out a way to monetize posting on DDF.

Might not be a mistake at $66, I see at least one on ebay for $80. That's pretty close.

There are a number of sellers offering it under $10 - all of them "just launched". I wouldn't bother.

PSA: Do not post deals from eBay/Amazon sellers with no seller feedback
« Reply #328 on: January 02, 2017, 01:32:24 PM »
Very simple to check
For Amazon: Follow the pictures in this post, if the status is "just launched" that means this seller is not reputable and it's a waste of time  and possibly money to buy from him especially if the price doesn't make sense.

Same thing with eBay, if the seller doesn't have at least 100 Seller feedback (make sure it's recent feedback, will explain in picture) please don't post here as it's most likely a hacked account and you will not get what you ordered and possibly struggle with eBay/PayPal to get your money back.

Look at the first comment for eBay pictures

@searchguy well said and well written

Just Launched Seller Vs. 3rd Party PM.

Just launched seller.
How do we stop these posts

Maybe add a note in the Amazon start here thread.
I'm yet not to receive any deal from them

Those deals should Be banned from ddf

It's worst than a 3rd party pm
"3rd Party Amazon Price Mistakes: Someone's Gonna Lose On This One. Is It Gonna Be Me or You?"
in for one thanks!!!
but we know far too well how these end up.

3rd Party PM is not what I am referring to at all, and I don't think it comes in here... Not saying you have any hope there...

Is it really true that every ebay seller has a store? 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Just launched sellers with Fulfilled by Amazon are not an issue, only just launched sellers with seller fulfilled.

Correct, can possibly be fake though, always good to double check after receiving the goods

Why is that? I'm a powerseller and I don't have a store.
