Last month, I replied to an ad on freelancer.com posted by SELLERULIMITED. I spoke through a skype phone conversation with man whose name was listed as Mike Greene. He asked me about myself conversed with me for a while and then told me I could join his team of sellers and he would hook me up with a sales leader. The next day I was contacted a "sale leader" who asked about myself and sent me numerous welcome emails.
They gave pictures, ad listing of items to sell, which I then listed and sold on ebay. After the items were sold I would send a spreadsheet with buyer shipping information, and 1-3 days later I would receive an invoice from a place called "allinoneautctions", which I would pay through chase bank.
I was became skeptical when they could not provide tracking information for the items. They would always come up with an excuse why their was no information and have me use those excuses to hold off customer inquires. However my skepticism was quelled when they finally did provide information for a few of my orders. Some items were delivered and I received good buyer feedback on ebay.
After about two weeks paypal permanently locked my account due to fraudulent activity, ebay subsequently suspended my ebay.
I thought that these things were ebay and paypal's wrongdoings because there are so many story of good sellers getting canned over minor offenses.
To date I can only confirm maybe a dozen of my orders have been placed and a few buyers have complained that the items look fake. I have nearly 900$ of seller fees I cannot pay, and sold more than 4300$ worth of stuff that will now have to be refunded.
Please do not work with these people. It took me almost a month to realize this scam and my life has been turned upside down.
