not sure if this is the thread to put names (it's in the newbies subforum and not some other feedback thread) but here's a lesson for all: make sure u have everything to check the item you are buying and if you're not satisfied for a good reason, walk away from the deal.
He also sells some lowepro bags, Pentax stuffs etc. Watch out. He is not a local.
Ask him whether got blower or lens clothes, he asked me to use hankerchief to wipe???! I didn't pursue further on the dust, due to first - his profession, his numerous posts online, and I kinda trusted his words becos' he is also a fellower CSers. Silly me. I guess predators are everywhere preying on ignorance.
Just post the nick here
What u guys afraid of?
You are telling fact here, what he can do to u?

but if you're interested as to whom i or zoomP had dealt with, its thinkvision. looked so professional, talk so professionally online especially about tests with the 35-70 f2.8 etc who knows maybe his test results are flawed due to fungal halos in the periphery!
Octarine, I hope you are not speaking officially on behalf of CS? Who is talking about legal ground? The admin has the rights to ban member based on misconduct or delete certain posts if it was deemed misleading?
Anyway, what's the point of annoucing his name when he can recreate a new nick to login? I think the matters at hand is to inform people our experiences and identify the characteristics of this person. I think that will be more helpful.
Yes, it's Thinkvision. So what?!
While some are genuine sellers or buyers there are a bunch of people buying used stuff and selling them at higher prices than what they bought. That also explains for the frequent delays oo changing of trading meet up time. They have to make sure they have a seller or fix a time before they can sell it to you and pull off a quick one. Of course trading of more complicated optic hardware these middle men will most of the while be incapable of assuring or give gaurantee on the life span or condition of these second hand items. At the sellers' point of view how can they know whether the items were damaged by the user after he / she bought it. Know that they are used stuff not from distributers or shops this is the risk that buyers have to take.
Upgrade of same lens over and over again some even want the original box pakaging don't you think its too weird a behaviour?
Okay nick mentioned will take note and care when trading with him. That's the least you can do do not fear to name them if you know you were not in the wrong.

TS, I salute you for being able to maintain your cool after such a serious accusation. If it's me, I don't know what will happen liao.
And I feel Zoomp is right to say that administrators of CS has the right to take certain actions to protect the overall interests of its members. Not to babysit but to prevent 'crooks' from ripping members off.
This one is like those slimming advertisements where they promised this and that when in fact nothing works. The authorities also came in to clamp down on such advertisers.
Imagine spending thousands on slimming program that doesn't help you lose weight, and then the company points the finger at you and accuse you of eating snacks at night

on one hand that its not fair for CS to be responsible, we would ask instead, if certain traits, or undesirable behaviours should be inculcated and allowed to propagate
A very newbie question...
How do I check the lens for defects (eg fungus or others)
I hope you understand my critics earlier. Anonymous complaints do not help the honest people.
There's a few reseller in the forum.. So, check and double check the lens. Try not to meet up at night when light is low. Unless you prepared a big torch.
The problem with the B&S now is we cannot leave a feedback.

Now that a name has been mentioned, perhaps we should give him/her a chance to provide his side of the story?
