Be warned about the integrity of this ebay member.

tech-discount-shop, Oxford Road, Ansdell, Lancashire

Suprisingly this person has managed, untill recently, to build up a certain amount of positive feedback. However, I recently bought a gaming computer from them at a cost of £240+. I paid for the item via paypal and sat and waited for it to arrive.

7 Days later i contacted the seller and asked where my item was, The listing stated 3 to 5 day delivery). On the 8th day I rceived a message from him requesting that we use private emails to communicate. I swapped email address with him and received a reply stating that he had been away for a week due to a family illness and whilst he was away, someone else had sold the computer i had bought to a 3rd party.

He then offered me an inferior product as a replacement, I replied that it was not suitable and the next time I heard from him was 6 days later when he offered to upgrade the offered PC to a higher spec.

By this time I had already bought another PC from ebay and had raised a case with Ebay resolution centre.

Needless to say the case was resolved in my favour and I was re imbursed by ebay.

tech-discount-shop, then left a positive/negative feedback on my accoubt and I had to get ebay to remove that illegal feedback. In reply to the negative feedback I left on the tech-discount-shop feedback page, they actually replied and accused me of being a "Liar".

I asked ebay if that comment could be removed but they said it could not.  I then got notification that tech-discount-shop had relisted the item that I had bought and paid for and they had stated had been sold.

I also noted that during the month of December, another ebay member had also fallen foul of tech-discount-shop dodgy dealings and the reply left for that negative feedback was along the same lines.

Please be aware that although tech-discount-shop has built up a slight positive feedback record, it has to be said that the member who runs that account is not the kind of person you should trust. I have been an embay member for a number of years now and this is the first time I have felt the need to warn other members about such a dishonest ebayer. I luckily lost nothing more than time, the next person may be as unlucky as the other member who has left negative feedback for tech-discount-shop. Please BEWARE.
