Who can you trust on eBay? 13 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
[edit] Continued from Re:Question about mini LP packaging [/edit]

"most... there is one who words the auctions very carefully to omit the fact that the unique items they sell are illegal and of their own construction"

Please tell who it is! I do a lot of dealing on Ebay and would love to know. Does anyone know anything about albequerqe-ny? Are they to be trusted with authentic product? I just won something from them -- I did make sure to E-mail first and get confirmation that the disc is indeed authentic and authorized.

How about neco_kick and sushi-sushami? Are they to be trusted?

neco_kick = 100% from 42,403 (lots of repeat business)
sushi-sashmi = 100% from 19,656 (lots of repear business)

albequerqe-ny - I've seen a name like this but the spelling is incorrect so cannot check

QUOTE:
Most Japanese based large feedback 99%+ are extremely honourable people and to be trusted


The first two certainly fit into this category.

Regarding the name of the seller.... I don't like naming names for all sorts of reasons. However, I did some more research and the seller who sells very well made numbered home made boxes has significantly less than 99% (so the above rule applies). I guess I should point out that I am told he is selling a quality product that you may very well enjoy but it is in no way official. As such, it is theoretically possible that if he can make such good quality products, perhaps everything he sells is suspect?

Thanks for the reply! The correct spelling of that Ebay seller is albuquerque-ny.

On another note, can you (or anyone else) help me with the Earth, Wind & Fire issue I asked about under the "forgeries" thread? It's something I'm very curious about and have received no replies! Let me know if you can help!

Some of the sellers Domingo mentions here are not Japanese based, they are Chinese based, but they are indeed honest and reliable and when they say they are selling 100% Japanese they are being truthful. The thing to watch out for with Chinese based sellers is that they sometimes sell "promo" CDs (in the Western sense - that is they are marked in some way such as this release which has a stamp burnt into the CD and a sticker on the barcode).

I have found that it is always best to ask Chinese sellers if each item is a promo. They often tell you but sometimes forget or simply make a general statement that some things they sell are possibly promo. If you care (I do) then always best to ask rather than having the hassle to return them (or whatever).

I have had dealings with most of the Chinese sellers listed above with no major problems.

Yes, is easy to know if is japanese or chinese by checking the seller info. But fortunately these chineses do not mean "fakes".

By example cdfrjapan includes both front and back pictures, so is easy to know if is a regular or a promo CD.

Others are from other countrys like:

Pert Neubes is american
ozjeremy is australian (it list time to time, not always selling)
tvik is from sweden

I forget to include "japanminilp" that is from Korea and is also 100% original japanese product.

Ciao

What about HK Records? (Ebay bseller ID = hkrecords). Are they reliable to sell authentic, authorized Japanese mini LPs?

Let me know... Thanks!

The guys I bought minis from on ebay are Sushi-Sashimi and Quicksilverlove... They are 100% reliable, that's for sure.
But mainly I'm buying mini lps on japanese amazon. So, that means I can sell the authentic product too, even I'm not from Japan. If buyers are really interested in product they have to ask seller about all details including additional pictures, etc...

Front cover (main) image of WPCR-13142 (fake) : Led Zeppelin : Fake Led Zeppelin - 40th Anniversary Definitive Collection (Zoso Box)
WPCR-13142 (fake) : 2009-01-01

This fake Led Zeppelin 40th Anniversary appears to be made in China. You would find it hard to pick a sealed copy of this as being anything other than than the real deal.

Inside it is also remarkably similar but has some significant, obvious differences in packaging including: (a) the CD comes in a flimsy loose fitting bag (b) Physical Graffiti has no cut out windows and (c) III (3) has no turning wheel.

The CDs also have the tell tale extra ring in the middle but this is much better disguised than usual.

Unusually for fakes these have the catalogue number and an IFPI code (CC 303) on the silver side of the disc.

Front cover (main) image of VICP-5442,3,4 : Emerson, Lake + Palmer : First True Japanese Mini LP Rock Release
VICP-5442,3,4 : 1994-09-21

The first three Emerson Lake and Palmer albums (self titled, Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition) are arguably the first true Rock Mini LPs. They were released on 21st September 1994.

These had been preceded by a much earlier Lotus and a US release of some Rolling Stones albums repackaged for Japan a few short months before these. Neither of these earlier releases was true to the original vinyl although the Stones came close.

The earliest true Minis were two series of MCA Jazz releases from March 1994 (MVCZ-26 to MVCZ-45) including this example: Death and The Flower.

Front cover (main) image of SONY-BECK : Beck, Jeff : Feed Beck Amplifier Box
SONY-BECK : 2005-02-23

This unique and beautiful clam-shell style promo box contains ten Jeff Beck mini lp cds and has room to fit two more mini LPs. When flipped open, the inside of the box resembles a guitar amplifier.
