Buy Sell has finally been in contact with me about what they do. (Finally a manager stepped up!) I just threatened to goto the papers if they kept siting on their asses and did nothing. I told them I wasn't going to do this forever especially for free!
Here is a copy of their response.
Firstly, we appreciate your assistance in helping regulate and limit the fraudulent scams out there in the online world. You have been a big help and we appreciate your efforts. It has been passed down to me that BuySell.com will be posting "Warning" messages throughout the site to inform our viewers of scams such as the ones you have busted.
Secondly, we kindly request that you remove any reference to Buy and Sell, AutoTrader or any other Trader brands. We feel that naming only our brands is unfair as "scammers" are also evident on other websites such as eBay, etc.
Thirdly, as a reward for your hard work and by removing our brand names off your site, we would like to offer you a free BuySell.com Advantage Membership for 1 year (a value of $99.95). What you receive with Advantage are the following features:
- 3 free online photo ads (With your 3 free online photo ads, we kindly request that you post items for sale and not promote your website)
- Early ad access
- New Ads" placed in the last 48 hours are highlighted
- View Ads that are placed today
- Keyword search email - Weekly updates on your favourite searches
- Proximity search
- Exclusive Membership Contests
If you agree to this and would like a free Advantage Membership, please let me know and we will set it up for you. I will need your username.
Again, BuySell.com thanks you for your efforts and I look forward to your response.
OKAY!!!! SO I told them in a reply that I wanted to see the warning they are going to issue before I remove any statements concerning their papers. I also wanted to see them have a link from the warning to a spot within their site to expose the scam...IE tell people about Fake Escrows, Western Union scams etc, they can make it generic about making reference to online buying in gerneral, its happening on ebay etc.
So there it is, all my ads have been rejected this time around in the buysell, so you won't see me in there anymore, but I will continue to find creative ways to let people know whats going on.
