Default diyjapan=audiotek on e Bay

WARNING:
The "Audiotek" group is back at it.
Their latest seller ID is

diyjapan

They have been using fake feedback to dupe the unwitting buyer into bidding against their own (shill) bidders.

Just look at the feedback 99% is from their own people.

Unless it's your first (small) order, -or-
unless you bid very close to their "buy it now" price
they ususally fail to deliver, claiming they are "out of stock", or the item just never arrives.

Be careful, they are under investigation for fraudulent activity.

DIYERS.....Beware Alert!!!!!!

Hey watch out for this Scammer on EBay - "The DIY Audio Shop" manages by a scumball named "33kami".

He used to run the AudioTek168 and AudioTek968 but he closed up shop with Thousands of Dollars from us unsuspecting DIYers.

He emailed me back and said his account was stolen. Absolutely false as he sends a few of the small items and does not come thru with any of the big items! Scumball.. as I will be out at least $100 as the PayPal is past 45 days on some of the items.

He has over 150 Negative feedbacks in the last month as he closed down and opened under the "The DIY Audio Shop".

Buyers Beware... Spread the News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it looks like a deliberate attempt to defraud. Except...
Why do they respond to email?
Well,
My father used to say:

I'm doing what I can to foil these scammers. Note: You can always leave negative feedback (it cannot affect your claim).

After all, when they mess with one of us, they mess with ALL of us!

I also have experience with this seller. Like what dtm1962 said, he sent the small items and holds back the bigger ones. The tubes I ordered were never sent, only excuses were given.

Just wanted to let everyone know that "33kami" is no longer a registered eBay seller.

Let's remain vigilant. Like with cockroaches, if you've seen one, there are probably more lurking...
