Re: Flippa.com Pty Ltd Flippa.com RIP OFF, SCAM, f

http://www.ripoffreport.com/computer...-ltd-73193.htm

We recently purchased an internet site through Flippas online auction platform. We did not get what we purchased and Flippa refuse to assist us. They can provide the platform for criminal activity but take no responsibility when it comes to monitoring fraud and stopping the fraud. The person we purchased from has been on Flippa a number of times selling and not supplying, he then gets his account suspended but opens it under a new name. It is very easy to track, so why can't Flippa trace his activities and report him to the FBI, it is their duty of care.

Because they do not enforce legitimate auctions they are aiding and abetting criminals. The person we purchased off was Cory Fagel, New Albury, Indiana, he uses Da Webmaster, BizFlipWebsolutions, TheWebFlipper, WebdesignzNMore, Webmaster Designz, Sitelinx, WebDezinez, mywebdesignz4u.com, androidappdesignz4u.com, fagel-sin-free.info, tcscr.com and also Leet Hosting, New Albany, Indiana. I hope by letting people know about how we got ripped off by Flippa and Cory Fagel, more caution will be taken, or maybe people will stop using Flippa altogether.

Re: Flippa.com Pty Ltd Flippa.com RIP OFF, SCAM, f

Flippa banned my account, because we opposed a racial comment made by one user who was a friend of owner of Flippa.


Flippa promised us to refund the listing fees. So far we have not received anything. You may read more about the incident below.





I was asking the support again and again as they were keeping on closing my support tickets as "RESOLVED" without even answering.


Please go through below.




Flippa is racial organization - they discriminate based on race...












I have had a bad situation with Flippa.

They are discriminating users by race..

I am using Flippa since july 17th 2010. And I had 100% positive feedback and +11 trust rating.

All of the sudden, I had an user contact me through Skype (I had given my Skype details in my listing). He was asking me to disclose some specific details before sale and I said that I can not do before sale. He asked me for a sale outside Flippa. Since it will violate terms of Flippa, I rejected his request.

Immediately he started threatening me saying that he knew someone close to the owner of Flippa and I will be banned from Flippa..

He started posting bad public comments about me (almost 31 comments within 1 hour) and I reported this to Flippa.

They did not take action on him and suspended my account stating that he complained that I did not deliver all contents of my listing. In fact, he has not even placed a single bid in any of my listings.

Please see my conversation with Flippa Support below and suggest me what should I do?

I am thinking of taking this to media and government as it is purely based on racial discrimination.

Thank you

The 2 users are " UCashCow " and " basicnet ".

You have until 5pm AEDST on Friday 7th January 2011 to have these issues resolved, otherwise we will be placing a permanent ban on your account.

We will only reactivate your account if we have received email confirmation from the users who have lodged complaints that all issues have been resolved.

Flippa Customer Support.

It is ridiculos. UCashCow was never a bidder or buyer in any of my listings. How can you say that he complained about me?

In fact, me and user "ces" complained about UCashcow as he was spamming my listing saying that ces asked to do.

I strongly condemn the act of Flippa in siding with a person not related to any of my listings. Is this justice?

Thanks

Please kindly answer this...

How can I resolve issue with UCashcow when he was neither a buyer nor a bidder?

At least show me a listing which I sold to UCashcow...
I had lot of respect with Flippa Support, but you are just ignoring me for no reason of mine...

I am sorry...but I am thinking that it is a racial issue than actual issu
You suspended my account last time based on complains from users 'hard2find' and 'ces'. And I proved that hard2find was never a bidder or buyer in any of my listings and 'ces' agreed that I delivered everything and it was his oversight.

Now you are saying that you are confirming information from user 'UCashcow'. It will not take more than few minutes to check if he was ever a bidder or buyer in any of my listings.

You are asking me to resolve issues with 'basicnet'. I clearly mentioned in the listings and I delivered what is listed. In private message and active discussion, I even offered to issue full refund.

What more can I do, if he is not accepting any of my solutions including full refund?

Thank you

Please provide me a solution for the above request. UCashcow was never a buyer or bidder and I delivered everything listed in my listing to Basicnet. Please see private messages and you can understand the issue.

If you want to ignore me for any other reason (race, country or something like that), please do let me know and I will not come and post again or list anything for sale in Flippa.

Thank you

Oh my god. UCashcow was neither a buyer or bidder in any of my listing. And why should you wait for information from him when he was nowhere related to any of the sales?

He was claiming in one of his spam comments that he knew someone close to the owner of Flippa. You can see that in my private messages and Deleted Public Comments.

Is this a reason for waiting for information from a person who is not related to my listings?

Thank you

What should I do then? Please let me know...Why should be my account suspended based on a complaint received from Ucashcow? And why should you wait for information from ucashcow when he was not a buyer or bidder? You can see that yourself that he never bid or buy anything from me...
At least tell me what should I do?

Why should you need information from UCashCow when he is not a buyer in any of my listings?

quick responses by email, good communication, all information provided that was asked for. Fine. positive Buyer: basicnet Private Thu, Dec 16 2010

This is what basicnet left in feedback after receiving the listed items and additional items (other than what was listed).

It is still avaiable in my feedback profile. How can you accept a complaint after almost 2 months, when the same user left a positive feedback stating that he got all information that was asked for?

You are marking this as SOLVED when the request is not even answered.

Is this because I am Indian? Can you please tell me why should you wait for information from Ucashcow, when he did not even place a single bid in any of my listings? Is this because racial difference?

Please reply..and give me a solution instead of just marking this as solved, when it is not actually solved.
Thank you

Is this a right way of answering customer request? Who is "UCashCow" in respect of my listings?

Why should you suspend my account when I have had no sales with him?

Is this not my basic right to ask, when I am told that I am suspended because someone who have not even placed a bid in any of my listings had complained?

If I do not get a resolution, I am sorry that I have to consider this as racial attack on me..

It is my basic right to explain my side to you when I am punished for no reason.

Thank you...

Re: Flippa.com Pty Ltd Flippa.com RIP OFF, SCAM, f

I also had a bad experience with Flippa. I posted my domain name for sale at a cost of $19.00 (their Fee)

My domain name sold for $15

Now they want another $5 from me for a sales fee. Hey I could deal with paying an additional 5% that sucks, but it’s fair. BUT ANOTHER $5 for a $15 sale??? THAT’s 33.333%

I’ll never go back!

Time for a good alternative to come out.

I keep hearing of Flippa doing bad things like this. They are desperate for money though after having hundreds of thousands of dollars of investment moolah.

Wow, I had no idea that Flippa could be that shady. So did they end up suspending your account or trying to collect in anyway?

Thanks for sharing your experience on this. Not sure if it is typical. But, it is definitely something to consider. I will check out the other sites you mentioned.

Re: Flippa.com Pty Ltd Flippa.com RIP OFF, SCAM, f

this company have no customer services what so ever… and they rip off so many user worldwide… they charge you to place your ad with them(fine), and when you like to remove your ad from their site, they ask you pay again to remove it(funny), this is simple rip off. they not under the BBB in the USA so they don’t care, if we all compliant in the BBB USA law they will be closed this site long time ago; Here what Flippa customer services reply to me when I ask to remove my listing: timatflippa, Sep-17 01:57 pm (EST): Under no circumstance will the listing be removed unless you involved your federal law enforcement who then start dealing with the Australian Federal Police. You are welcome to up the privacy setting on the listing at a price but the listing isn’t going anywhere. Flippa Customer Support.

Re: Flippa.com Pty Ltd Flippa.com RIP OFF, SCAM, fraud

Just thought I would like to share my recent experience with flippa and explain in my opinion why it is such a crap website. I developed a website and put it up for sale on flippa.com I was getting lots of bids. Over 60 bids. The auction ended and the winning bidder never paid for the site. So I emailed flippa support team and they allowed me to relist the website. Fair enough.
So I relisted the website for sale and started getting a lot of bids again. For the second time, the listing ended with a winning bid.
As I was awaiting for the winner of the auction to pay (he never did pay by the way), I noticed some punk from India completely copied my website, cloned it and put it on another domain name and put it up for sale on flippa.

Naturally I was very pissed off so I sent a mean message to this thief. Obviously it was just a message in the moment, and I am sure anyone in my shoes would of done the same when they see all there hard work blatantly stolen.

So while waiting for a payment from the second auction sale of which the buyer actually never did pay, I got banned! Can you believe that?

What flippa.com should of done was look at the thiefs posting which I reported, and ban him instantly, yet I got banned for my bad message. I do agree I should of not sent that message, but under the circumstances it was justified. I put a lot of work into developing such a website and to only find that it got copied and stolen and flippa doesnt give a damn it is up for sale on their website.

So some grunt gets to sell my website on flippa, then I get banned. I am out $200 in listing fees and 2 weeks wasted time.

All flippa cares about is the almighty dollar. For this reason, they will eventually fall. They can still succeed while providing good customer service.

Screw you flippa.com

So here is where it gets even more fun:
I posted this exact complaint on warriorforum.com and guess what? Flippa.com all of a sudden becomes really nice and decides I was right and re-instates my account. Then weirdly the posting on warriorforum.com gets removed from their moderators. Looks like they don't like free speech themselves either.

So now I have been re-instated. I repost my site for sale and notice another seller copied my site. I sent him a polite message telling him to remove the site for sale or I will contact his web host to have the site removed. Those were not my exact words, but something along those lines. So I just got banned again! What a ripoff flippa is. Im still out $200 and have asked for a full refund, and have gotten no response from them. So I am now posting this to see if this will get their attention. I intend to file a lawsuit against them amongst posting this ad in 100's of forums if I do not get the right result that is fair and just. I have a lot of time on my hands to do just this. I am just a small guy against a big lion, but someone has to take a stand.
