Dodgy diet plans ... the rest

Fake copies of Microsoft Office, operating systems, memory cards and flash drives, fake designer clothing... anything of that nature. At any given time TM offers thousands of fake itmes which breach their terms & conditions... and often do little about the problem. This is the place to discuss the issue.

Currently two listings, a third one was withdrawn this morning

CWEd with:
Same listing as 90316279. Information is copied from a website
The seller actually gave out the website where it was from! But now I see she has edited it out.

The Google cache has the withdrawn auction. The site was...

And it's an eBook!

daniel251

Selling the exact same diet plan as Davetga!!
91300324
Plus many more.

Davetga gave him bad feedback for this auction:
55119216
But that was for a Car Jump Starter, not a diet plan.

Does davetga = daniel251 ??
There are similarities, such as answering questions in all capitals without any punctuation.

daniel251's profile states she is Susan from Te Puke.

I've emailed TM
I reported this person using the CW, but to no avail.

Seller daniel251: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listin ... er=1064916

He is selling eight diet plans for $1 reserve. The exact same diet plan was sold by another seller last year, who goes by davetga. His last auction for this item was 62535801. Daniel251 and davetga have traded before previously.

Last year, davetga had all their listings removed, possibly due to copyright infringement and is no longer selling them. Now Daniel251 is selling the exact same diet plan, word for word. I have good reason to believe that the two accounts have been operated by the same person.

Nevertheless, what daniel251 is selling is copyright infringement and all his listings should not go ahead.

Bullshit TradeMe, the action you've taken is absolutely nothing. Listings are still there. Not what I call appropriate at all to let this twerp continue ripping people off with this plaigarised diet plan

daniel251 is no more

Post by scott_evil » Mon Mar 19, 2007 9:40 am

I thought I would email my concerns again
Thanks for contacting us.

I have looked into each of these situations and taken the appropriate action in each case. Also 'daniel251' has been removed from the site.
Good result, although some poor person paid $10.50 for one of their diet plans last night.

91300324

Plus all these for under $10

This auction is for a diet plan for weight loss

this is what you will get:

The Diet plan and shopping list for:
The 5kgs in 3 days Heart Institute Diet Plan (4 x A4 pages)


These will be sent to you in the post.

This diet has been used in hospitals for heart patients who need to lose weight rapidly before undergoing surgery. It is very simple but effective. The foods can be found in local supermarket.

Easy and safe. Uses normal food.

You do this diet for just 3 days and then eat sensibly for the rest of the week.

If you want to, you can do it for 3 days every week until you have reached your goal weight.


Follow this plan exactly and you will lose 4-6 kg's and maybe more in 3 days.(results will differ)
87279998
Bought from yodalikepies
This auction is for a diet plan for weight loss.
(printed on 2 pages of A4 paper.)


Follow this plan exactly and you will lose 4-6 kg's and maybe more in 3 days.(results will differ)

It is a diet that consists of simple supermarkets foods and is very easy to follow.

The foods that are eaten work on a chemical breakdown to cancel each other out.
Seller has only started selling these diets after buying the diet plan.

Bad feedback from their first trade:
took a week for me to receive a pathetic envelope with 4 pages of amature information. rip off. would not suggest trading with this person at all. I CAN ASSURE YOU WILL BE DISSAPOINTED AND RIPPED OFF.
Buyers are already being ripped off, the auction sold for $35.00
The one mentioned at the top of the thread is currently bidding at $41.00
And this one sold for $55.00 90239391

What an awful waste of money! Lets put and end to this guy ripping others off.

kiramber (58 ) Address Verified Feb 2006 23 Mar 2007
garry_godslayer was the seller
Sold for $15.00
(#91662948)
Very clever trader! Selling same diet bought from "yodalikepies" at way more than triple the price. Well Done!
She paid $15.00 for a diet plan she knows was copied from somewhere else.

I'm emailing tradeMe about this garry_godslayer conman.
YOUR QUESTION:
Just noted your feedback given to garry_godslayer: " Very clever trader! Selling same diet bought from "yodalikepies" at way more than triple the price. Well Done! " ..... are you sure they are the exact same diet plan??

SELLER'S ANSWER:
Yes. I purchased both.
She just changed the feedback from positive to negative.
