24 February - Cash and Money Orders
From the Wednesday 1st of March Trade Me will no longer accept cash or money orders as payment for your Trade Me account. Your best alternative payment methods are credit card online or internet banking payments.
Anyone without a bank account shouldn't need to be a member of an online trading site anyway.
How about blocking Credit Card #'s & reporting them to the relevent banks when TM are scammed by fraudulent use of Credit Cards? ESPECIALLY those Credit Cards that are issued
OVERSEAS FFS! - Any bank can give you a list to cross ref the prefix #'s from.
Good move anyway TM. - Its only taken 3 years but,Well done for listening.
Ah, so (as usual) TM finally take action when THEY ARE THE VICTIM OF A SCAMMER.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but under maritime convention (yes, I know that TM is not a shipping company, but the analogy is relevant) isn't it accepted that that captian of a sinking ship is the last person to leave the stricken ship?
Oh, wait (sorry, I was in temporarily in the real world), apparenty Captain Morgan is abandoning the ship .... and giving the big finger to his passangers.
But, wait, there's more..... surely Captain Morgan realises that scammers are using stolen CC's?
Totally off topic... but check this out......
After 3 CW's of a seller that copied my auction text (almost perfect word for word), I got totally f*cking annoyed, so I eamiled the (alledged) trust & safety addy. The response was... "Unfortunately, due to the large number of listings on the site, we are
unable to investigate whether listing details have been copied. While we
do not encourage it, we cannot prevent this from happening. "
But wait, my 3 attempts at CW'ing this gave precise directions to my auctions that was beng plagerised (sp?) and infringed my legal copyright.
And, yet, they claim that they have an "investigating unit". What a crock of sh*t.
So, Mr Scum Morgan - everyday that you ignore your customers..... it wipes another million off your (greedy) plans to retire into the sh*th*l* that awaits you.
..... Scum Morgan.... if you want to attain the riches that you crave..... you need to put your customers interests ahead of your blatent greed...... the ultimate irony is that if you put your customers ahead of your greed......... you WILL actually acheive the riches the you aspire to.
