I got caught up in what I thought was a SD, but turned out to be a ripoff. An Ebay seller named serious-sirius sold cut rate 1-year SIrius subscriptions and now 5 months into it, he is no longer responding to emails and he seems to have removed all posts from Ebay. It is difficult to find anything on him and as far as I can tell impossible to complain to Ebay because the purchase was outside of the complaint time-frame guidelines. Here is one forum outlining the issue. http://www.corvetteforum.com/foru...rning.html
I wish there was something that can be done and I know I am not the only one because it was a SD that others took advantage of. Lets reclaim our rights or at least make someone accountable.Somewhere I still have hope that maybe he is just away temporarily and will respond and make it all better, but I am loosing hope fast.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

"Let's reclaim our rights"?

What are we supposed to do, sneak out in the middle of the night dressed up as Native Americans, and go dump sat radios into the harbor?

You purchased a super cheap, heavily discounted sirius gift card off of eBay, which most likely used a stolen credit card to purchase it in the first place.. And it was deactivated. So you decided that posting your grief on hot deals would do what exactly?

It's happen to lots of us. Eat your loss and move on. And please leave the hot deals section for actual deals.

Paypal usually does not cover digital or intangible merchandise. Hope you used a good CC.

this is why you dont buy shit like this off ebay/amazon

most of the subscriptions are just stolen and sold to people that wouldn't know any better

IMO i think ebay should refund you the money because they had it listed on their site. the need to find better ways for people to sell stuff like clean imei cell phones and refill cards giftcards etc.

Was this "deal" originally posted on Slickdeals? I'm sure it would've been thumbed down as a scam. Like another post said, eat your loss and move on...

There are literally thousands of scammers on eBay, what makes you think posting one of them on here is a good idea, on "hot deals" no less...

It was one of the many Sirius deals on SD, but during the thread someone mentioned buying on Ebay and I thought it was a good idea. Little did I know. Here is the seller
http://feedback.ebay.ie/ws/eBayIS...llFeedback Surprisingly good rating, but I feel it will catch up with him soon.

it probably wasn't a slickdeal thread, probably someone posted a slickdeal from a reputable retailer, then someone commented "can get on ebay same price or cheaper any day, not slick" so he goes to ebay to buy it
