We Almost Went To JAIL! - A Reseller Horror Story! EBay Buying / Selling




What do you think about this video?

Sarah M. Jordan: that is so scary. Thanks for sharing your experience. By the way I freaking love your amazing Hawaiian shirt. Is there a sloth on it? 🐵🐒

Ed19601: Here is another twist:
Cop wants to get a present for his GF. Sees the add, presumes it is stolen and he and a few buddies pull a fast one

Jin Kim: You guys got lucky getting decent cops. Most don't care if you were ignorant or not. If they can get the case to stick, they would stick it to you.

Ed19601: By the way: there are other dangers in reselling. If you buy and resell something that was manufactured or shipped in breach of law in the country of origin, according to US law you are liable.
A girl got 8 years for importing fish from I think Honduras that was wrapped in clear material while according to local law it had to be opaque. A guy got 6.5 yers for the same.
Don't believe me? google "Abner Schoenwetter" or 'Lacey Act'

ditto if you import/resell say t-shirts that were made in foreign Sweat shops

Ed19601: So you do think about fakes but not about maybe stolen?
A guy uses 2000 dollars to buy 7 headphones and is willing to sell them for 500 ??? and you didnt smell a rat?
Beat headphones, especially the luxury ones cost at least 380 dollars. A guy buys 7 for a gift certificate of 2000 USD which is an average of 285 USD and then is willing to sell them to you for 500 each??

Actually all your buyers must have known these had 'fallen of a truck' as well at 140 USD
Anyway, you have been lucky, they could have charged you for fencing, solely based on the assumption you 'must have known they were stolen'

jason adams: no one in the right mind is going to buy  7 headphones & sell them at a loss, that alone should have set alarm bells ringing especially well known brands & to buy without questioning where he got them from & how long he had them for

Drake Dragon: Good tip...i was reselling 10 years ago...planning on getting back in this year.

Velcro: Very helpful video dude. Thanks so much for the upload. I will be starting a UK based reseller business next month, so trying to obtain as many tips and pieces of advice as possible before we commence.

Kid Vixen12: wow 0_0 im glad your ok . ill keep that purchase agreement in mind . were can i get those forms at ?

Mikat: yeah 2000$ in headphones
yo can i have them for 500$?
sure
if it sounds too good to be true it probably is

Eduardo Mariscal: thx for sharing this experience

moxxi: Everyone loves a great story and that my friend, was a great story!

Carl Taylor: 652 criminals viewed this vid at time of posting.

Vin Ano: So you bought headphones for $70 and sold them to your good friend for $200? Hell of a friend you are ;)

Henry Li: This thing happened to my dads friend. He bought a camera from a guy on the street after the guy told him that he needed the money to buy a airline ticket back home. Probably months later he visited a store to buy parts for the camera and the clerk told him. He complied with the cops but at the end he still lost $10000(CAD not USD lol) in fees and stuff, plus the camera.

THEDRAGONBOOSTER8: Great video .I still think you should of got the $130 from the cops for your help..

Tom A: I am very doubtful about your sincerity since this all seem to be a joke to you and your glib response is unconvincing.  Don't buy stolen stuff, ignorance of origin, is not an excuse and should give you pause, after listening to all that prattle, I still don't know what your point was.

Theunknowndoodlebop: THOSE ARE CRAP HEADPONES MADE FROM CHEAP crap PARTS ANYWAY

Angel Williams: Wow crazy story

Teech: something you can tell your kids
