I have just purchased an Iphone in the trade section.

However within minutes of me accepting and paying the mods close the auction and suspend the seller, all for the reason they think the seller bought the phone cheaper elsewhere!

So what, big deal, fair enough you don't condone trader like sales but to suspend someone and close the auction AFTER they have received the money is basically telling them to do a riunner!!

Hopefully the seller will be ok as they have been here for over 2 years with 70+ feedback.

But in any other case, say the seller has only been a member for 3 months with 3/4 feedback do you think that this closing of listings and suspending sellers there and then knowing fine well a member has just paid for the item is encouraging the seller to just say "F*** it, what a load of crap, been suspended for something so simple, sod them all."

And do a runner?

What is the purpose of suspending a member and closing the listing when someone has just sent that member £140??? Surely wait until the transaction has been completed then take action explaining to the seller that they are now suspended for a period of time and tell them the reason behind it!!

Complete and utter disregard for the other member. For all I know I could have just thrown £140 down the drain and this would be the fault of the mods on this forum!!

The rules of this forum well and truly need looking at as this is not the correct way to run a business.

OH AND THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW THAT YOU HAVE SUSPENDED THE MEMBER!! THE FIRST I KNEW WAS WHEN I TOOK A LOOK A THE POST BECAUSE IT HAD AN EXTRA POST IN IT, AND THAT WAS THE MOD SAYING IT IS CLOSED, SO I LOOK AT THE MEMBER AND THEY ARE SUSPENDED!!

PATHETIC!!

Talk about protection?? You are enticing people to scam!!!

In b 4 the lock :whistling:

It can get very frustrating on here at times tho.

I think they'll just say that he broke the rules n thats why he's suspended.

so your idea is let them stay till you are happy and recieved the phone, or is that for all suspensions or just for members who have been here long enough to know the rules

You should still have their contact number and address should anything go wrong - you will of course have obtained that prior to sending any cash.

this happend to me once the person i bought an item off got suspended literally after i paid him, then few days later he was back. Luckily he still sent the item.

We advise all parties involved in a sale / trade to exchange full contact details when agreeing a sale, so regardless of a members current status you should still obviously have all the necessary information to get in touch with them by external email, telephone & also through the post should any problems arise.

[B]FS/FT - Trade safe! Follow these guidelines!


Caveat Emptor. Do NOT proceed with a deal until you are completely satisfied with all details being correct. It's in your best interest to check out these details yourself. This forum is equivalent to a newspaper's classified section, HotUKDeals is not responsible for and does not vouch for any listings or sales/trades in this forum! Use your head, follow the guidelines, evaluate the risk and make your own decision.


If a member breaches a FS/T Rule then the appropriate warning/infraction will be applied. A suspended member will return to the forums once their suspension has ended.

If you have any specific concerns with a sale then please use the 'Contact Us' link, or use the report button http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_buttons/report.gif on the relevant thread.[/B]
