Just saw a beautiful Sony TR-6 on Etsy from seller called Radiiioo located in U.S. for $44.89 with free shipping.

So they're now here !!!

I've let them know John.

I have purchased a few radios on Etsy over the years.
Would only deal with an established seller now.

Be careful out there.

Other items from same seller.

Etsy has a "report this item" on every listing...
...and, I have informed them on more than one occasion, with all the evidence that an eight-year old child could understand... :shock:

This guy's account has not be deleted - - - in fact, he has completed two sales!

What's the point in informing them anymore in the future if they do nothing.
sheesh... Greg.

Greg,

I had reported them several times including links with original item listing pics. When it kept happening, just gave up !

At least we tried ! Can't be their full time "ad police"...

I have reported several of these bogus listings which were lifted from Ebay to Etsy. At one point, several of the listings disappeared, but at the moment (Sat night), there are numerous such listings appearing. Perhaps if Etsy were to be contacted by many people, they might start taking the matter seriously.

I also reported several over a couple day period and took time to locate actual items pics stolen from... No time to continually fool with fools...

Maybe someone will sue Etsy if this continues to get out of control ? That would make them think !

Maybe they think it'll look more authentic ???
