My Story with Trade Me

Believe or not, I personally had four accounts on Trade Me, but only one left which is activated. Let’s talk about account A, my first account on Trade Me.

At that time I was looking for jobs on Trade Me. I wasn’t think too much, just had my real name registered on Trade Me for job hunting, and for some technical reasons, I’ve never receive the email that allows me to active my account! So I registered another email address just for Trade Me, and then of course register Trade Me account with my new email. Here it comes my second Trade Me account B.

One day I realized that Trade Me doesn’t helpful in job hunting. But I started to selling things on Trade Me, after I made a few deals I think it is not wise to have my real name displayed on Trade Me, so I registered account C, and added some credits, things goes just as what I expected until one day, I received an email with a lovely title says: Auctions withdrawn, a few minutes later following another email titled with Multiple memberships on Trade Me, the admin has withdrawn my lists and deleted my account. Screenshots of the email:

So I tried to contact them by sent four or five emails by click on ‘contact us’ in that email, I stated the reason why I registered three accounts on Trade Me, and appealed to offer a chance to change my name of account. but they never reply! Not as what it says on Trade Me ‘Expected response time: 3-5 days’. I was waiting for a month, no shit coming out! Nothing! (I can’t dial 090087233 because my SIM plan is Pre-paid).

Due to I really don’t want to use my real name on Trade Me especially when you selling things online, so I registered fourth account D. The result ended just like account C, no notice before delete all your lists (I’ve had more than 10 lists). At that time I just spent $49.99 for a list in vehicle category, how fucked up Trade Me is??
