I too was almost swindled by an ebay.ph seller last year.

He was selling Smallville S4 for 900 (among other tv series titles), and the auction title specifically indicated that it was "sealed original region 1".

because of the low price, i immediately had doubts. when i first texted him i repeatedly asked "are you sure it's orig r1?" almost to the point of saying "coz i only collect originals and i'll know in an instant if it's fake".

still, he confirmed it was orig, and reassuringly said "meet na lang tayo para makita mo." i had him meet me near my house so i won't be too inconvenienced in case he's pulling one on me.

because my gut was telling me he was trying to con me, i even decided to bring my smallville s1, not for comparison purposes, but to shame him if my gut-feel was right! (shame on me)  ;D

so i went to meet him, and even before he fully took the DVD out of his paper bag, i knew, like most of us members here, that it was fake. a run-of-the mill, quiapo version, i may add. but to his credit, it was shrink-wrapped.  :P

still, probably because i was in a decent mood that day, i did my best to still be courteous and think well of his intentions. sabi ko na lang: "ahh. kasi pirated ito eh. gusto ko sana orig" and some other small talk. of course, i showed him the original specimen, and he had a rather passive, blank, and innocent, i must say, expression on his face. when i asked where he got it (feigning interest), he mumbled something about his girlfriend getting it somewhere.

buti na lang the entire meeting took all of about 10minutes of my time. i soon forgot his ebay handle as i made up my mind not to think about the incident anymore. he's probably still selling his wares there.

I placed a negative feedback but somehow, she was able to hide her feedbacks from public view! one clever liar, girl pa naman  :-\

A word of caution to fellow members, Please beware of an (multi-personality) ebay.ph seller named, MONETTE VIVAR or her fictitious sister ALMA BLANCA or ALMA LUCERO, goes by the user id ablanca888 and phone number 09212230449  (mods, please delete if this is unecessary)

Dowals, you should report her: http://www.ebay.ph/helpTSForm

That way they can ban her.

a lot of sellers there does not know the concept of auction, some posting a single item several times during an auction cycle. If you ask them how many pieces they have, nag iisa lang pala.

This is ebay's reply to my email yesterday:


Hello,

Thanks for writing to us. My name is Bryan and I appreciate the
opportunity to assist you with your questions regarding the seller's
feedback.

I understand that the seller has made his feedback private, to hide the
feedback comments. However, members are really allowed to do so. I can
assure you that the negative feedback placed on the seller's account,
will serve as a warning for all other buyers. Also, by making the
feedback profile private, members may decrease other eBay participants'
desire to conduct business with them. Please also note that while the
comments will be private, other members will still be able to see the
number of positive, neutral and negative comments on a member profile.

Thank you for being a valued member of the eBay community, and have a
great day.

Regards,

Bryan B.

I also log-on to Ebay.ph, but I never make a purchase if I haven't seen the item yet.  Nakabili na rin ako dito at nakatanggi na ako ng isang purchase ko kasi hindi orig yung item.  IMHO

i actually sell my pirated sets there but at a cheap price ( around P30 per disc only) because I won't be watching them ever again. But I don't mislead people, someone asked me if it was original. I replied that do you expect to but a complete season of Dead Zone for P200 only. Of course it is not original.
