I guess what with vacations and an anti-fraud department with a staff of 1 its hard to do much.
I think if you are buying any newer sets online from private sellers @ 15% or more below retail you are asking for trouble. jmho
By the way. Love your Lego room! :-)
Hello everyone,I'd like to quickly introduce myself on here and will post on a few other forums here to notify you of my contact information for fraud related Lego sales. My name is Thor Magnussen and I now work for Lego; I'm here to help combat the fraudulent sales on sites like ebay, ecrater and this site as well. If any of you have information related to fraudulent sellers please contact me via email at Thor.Magnussen@lego.comThank you,Thor Magnussen
I did email Thor and here's my response:I will be on vacation starting Thursday June 16, returning Tuesday June 28th. During this time I will be checking/responding to email and voicemail periodically.Thank you,Thor Magnussen
^ If you took the time to read the entirety of this thread (and other, similar ones), you would find many specific examples of what we are talking about. I believe it is abundantly obvious we are not discussing reselling in general or Lego imitations.
You are right. I didn't read every posting. I read the originator's post, and he wasn't very clear or specific, and so I wasn't for sure anybody else would know what this was about either.
Friends Cafe for example, starting at 99p and the cheapest I've seen that is £20 from amazon. Also no reduction on postage costs if you buy more than 1 item always raises a few concerns for me to.
can somebody explain why we don't seem to ever get firm action and arrests here? can't people be tracked using urls etc?
can somebody explain why we don't seem to ever get firm action and arrests here? can't people be tracked using urls etc?It is white collar crime...You can steal a lot of money using a computer before you really get in legal trouble...If you use a knife or a gun to steal $50, you'll have a dozen cops throwing you to the pavement...That is just how our civilization works... Go figure...
