After reading the reddit comments, I have to say I am convinced this is a scam.

Someone who had a business that owes over $10,000,000 to creditors shouldn't be ever allowed to create another one and or be a director or any role that involves business decisions.

 

He is an outright scammer.

Looks like he has copy pasta shiftarounda Trademe's T&C a bunch too... an example:

 

 

 

Trademe:

You must maintain and update your personal information held by Trade Me to ensure it is kept current at all times. Trade Me may phone or mail you to verify these details.

loltrade:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/help/143/terms-and-conditions is very very similar to http://www.4tradeit.co.nz/index.php?a=28&b=140#INDEX.

 

 

 

Id probably charge out 1 hour to amend the Terms and conditions to not look identical.

 

That leaves us with 39,998.5 hours to account for.

I think it would need to be a site with lots of visitors already. Like fishpond. 

 

Trademe is over charging. A lot of the stuff on there, is just the same stuff of aliexpress with a higher price. Although that does offer legal protection of a sort.

Big problem I have with trademe is they have made it impossible to see things that are in NZ, and have let a crap load of sellers from the UK, china and Aussie on there.

 

That negates any benefit of going to trademe which is buying from a local place with a decent turnaround time to get the stuff to you and CGA protection. If I want to wait ages for stuff I am taking a chance on, I wont be browsing trademe for the stuff.

True. What is the point if you miss out on quick delivery and CGA protection/local regs?

Quite often for phone cases and other things they are offshore based and imported when ordered..
Seen that quite a bit with some things.

In which case they should be set as china so when I search for auckland or north island, they dont show up. Its the south island sellers that are missing out at the moment with no NZ only search option.

Had another look at the site. Definitely nothing new/interesting and has died by the looks of it.

4tradeit seems to have only cheap junk and very expensive cars listed, and that's all.

Does anyone know what platform this website is built from?  I assume its off the shelf software as well?
