Let's say we give the seller the benefit of doubt and indeed his sister does work for NewEgg. Is the employee discount so good that he's actually making money off this?

King Nothing, does the price on the Newegg invoice match your eBay invoice?

lately newegg hasnt been giving packing slips in my boxes & when they do there is no total of what the stuff costs just whats in the box so you cant tell. When I ordered the 6850 from this seller on ebay it came in a newegg box with packing slip. No total. I only bought the card to make a profit on craigslist lol

HAHA. Nice

I checked the seller's past transactions and it looks like he only sells HIS HD6850, XFX HD5830 and EVGA 460 SE. So I guess he must be getting those specific ones at an incredibly low price.

I didn't check out the specific seller or anything.
But if there is any sort of employee discount, and the items have a mass buy discount too. It could/would be very profitable to buy a dozen or so of each item, and sell them for well under msrp and just over cost to the original buyer.

Well call me the skeptic, but I'm pretty sure this is credit card fraud, straightforward. Reading through the other links you posted and reading his feedback, it seems that he built up a feedback profile trading with himself and now is scamming stolen credit cards and selling the goods on eBay. The reason he hasn't been caught yet is that this usually takes several weeks to catch. Although he has been 'selling for a long time', it seems that his sales have become more seemingly legitimate (eg, not with other usernames he controls) as of late.

All in all, your call bro. And in any case, you didn't do anything. You bought something off ebay. No intentional purchase of stolen goods, etc.

I wouldn't worry about it.

You got a great deal I would drop it. Register it and call it good. If anything every comes back to you it is on him not you.
post #28 of 146
I'm 99% sure he's doing this:

Newegg may be really relaxed about shipping to an address other than the bill-to one so he's likely just using stolen CC's to order the merchandise directly to you. It's essentially an easy way to cash out stolen credit cards and use you to launder the money without you being aware of it. Unfortunately, this puts you in a situation where cops will come knocking at your door at some point down the road.

What I'd do:

Initiate contact with the police. Call the non-emergency number and explain the situation. Let them know what happened and that you are suspicious of the transaction and you want them to make a report on it. Worst case they may act as if you're annoying but you're essentially buying yourself insurance. If it does end up being stolen you'll be able to say "Hey, on DATE I filed a police report regarding this matter. I saved everything regarding the transaction too. I'm the victim!" This way, worst case they just take the card.

You may think this is going way too overboard but it really isn't. If you decide to take the "well it's his problem, not mine" attitude you will appear like you have something to hide. If the cops do come knocking, and they decide you appear nervous, you'll likely face several hours of intense questioning. Your PC's, external HDD's, cell phones, etc may all be temporary or even permanently confiscated too.

Good luck.

Hey now that you bring this up he has a lot of accounts. they usually start with "seller." I have bough a couple of items from him/her and I registered them and so far there hasn't been a problem. He sells proccessors (got a Phenom II X4 965 for $130), graphics cards (GTX 460 SE for $128), and his 3rd account sells motherboards.
