Honest Sellers on Ebay (yes sorry again!)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all..

Found this board a couple of days ago and never realised there were more people like me ...(some say might say Diesel geeks, I prefer junkie!) !

Am on a big Diesel hunt at the moment, I live in London and am trying to find good sellers in the US (what with the exchange rate etc.) Have found a seller ... STS_222 who I believe was BLM_222. The pictures look quite pretty, but, yes I have had my ebay fingers burnt before. (also his feedback is not great)

I also noticed that a UK seller Roper1983 was buying from this seller, then obviously marking up the price for the UK market.

I thought that roper1983 was a good seller although I have never brought denim from him (brought some black cords which I believe are real (???how do you spot fake cords though????).

Has anyone had any dealings with these sellers? Or know any others that are worth dealing with?

My trust list at the mo is quite short:
Designer_depot_UK
Dieselofmiami

Thanks all

Joel

sts_222 was never blm_222 (the only blm I've seen is ME! ). How do you know roper is buying from sts? I would stay away from sts by the way I've asked him questions and been very unhappy with his responses. Also he's in canada which automatically makes him suspect. Just kidding.

Just call me the diesel vs ebay detective .....

Hi BLM,

Thanks for the info.

I looked at STS_222's ID History and It said that he was registered as BLM_222 until May 2003. I just wondered if anyone had any info about both names (I guess he sold under the other a couple of years back).
(also when people change their ID it does make you ask the question ...WHY?)

With Roper1983 I was looking on his feedback and I noticed that he had brought loads of single items on the same day (Christmas infact) from STS, including a lot of Zathans. (this is how I can accross the STS)

Obviously he might not be selling them, he might of treated himself to about 20 pairs of jeans, it was Christmas!

I am guessing that he would have sold them on, I have noticed a lot of UK sellers do this as you can double your money if you are clever (normally new sellers though).

I have thought roper1983 was a good seller and always check his stock. However, .... why buy from the UK if you can source from the same place in the US as the UK seller is.

At this point I thought nice I can buy from STS and save $£££££! Then I thought what if the jeans are fake! Then ...can I still trust roper???????

So I came for help!!!!!

Obviously Roper could have brought them and they could have all been fake and he could have sent them back...(there is no feedback from roper on STS's board) In fact there is no way of really knowing (they could have been fine at totally real for all I know) . But if STS does sell fakes I will probably avoid roper and STS just to be on the safe side.

sorry if none of this makes any sense any info would be fantastic!

Thanks

Joel

A lot of STS feedback is bad - things like unlisted defects and bad shipping. Its up to you and you never know if ALL of roper's jeans come from STS. Good catch tho!

Thanks for the info.

Just wondered if you had ever brought from STS. i.e. does he sell fakes or is he just a bit rubbish!

From the pix I never saw anything which screamed blatent fakery to me... But I never bought from him either. He had a pair of zathan 713s in my size which I had my eye on for months but they finally sold to someone else
