Scammed into buying fake Nokia Bluetooth Headphones

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.

Scammed into buying fake Nokia Bluetooth Headphones

Post by mikerussellnz » Sat Nov 28, 2009 4:44 am

I have been scammed into buying some fake Nokia bluetooth headphones. It's not a case of the seller putting anything in small letters. Instead its a blatant misleading auction that leads you into thinking you are getting the original product.

Sellers response was "You should have asked me on the auction before buying".

I do not think I should have to do that as the auction should not be misleading in the first place.

Link to the auction:

I would not buy any of the Nokia BH-503's listed on TradeMe, they all appear to be fakes.

I forgot to ask, is there anything I can do except complain to TradeMe and post bad feedback?

Hi Mike and welcome to ScamBusters. The auction certainly gives not a
single hint that this person is selling fakes and you are entitled to a full
refund (including postage) under the Consumer Guarantees Act. The
auction heading says "Nokia Bluetooth headset" which implies that
you're buying a Nokia branded product.

I would email the seller again adding the info above and ask for a full
refund. Feel free to add a link to this thread. And please let us know how
you get on.
