Archive for July 2003 announcements
From early next week Trade Me will no longer be allowing photos on listings in the adult books category and the adult DVD category. We have done this to maintain a quality site without explicit or offensive content.
After advice from the SPCA we have changed the rules around the selling of pets. We no longer allow auctions of pets, these categories will be restricted to classified only. There is a listing fee of $7.50 in these categories.
Farm livestock may still be sold by auction.
We are now sending an email to the seller everytime you start an auction. This is being done for security reasons.
We have made a few changes to categories, adding several new ones and merging small categories.
We have added several car makes and an 'other' category for special cars.
Please let us know your thoughts in the category message board.
It has come to our attention that there are a number of determined scammers currently in operation attempting to hijack Trade Me accounts. One method has been to send an email, detailing problems with your TradeMe account and capturing via a mock-up of the TradeMe login page your login/password details.
As a result to some members falling foul to this. Please be aware that there may be 'scam' auctions running from members with credible feedback, even some you may have dealt with in the past.
Please pay special attention to the method of payment, and if possible attempt to diagnose via the question and answer facility the legitimacy of the auctioned goods. If you believe you have stumbled across a scam auction, please lodge a complaint (at the bottom of the form).
