But if you don't 'name and shame' people will make assumptions and some of those assumptions will be wrong

Re: Duplicate accounts and traders - Beware

I've not read all through the thread, but I do think people should be named and shamed if they are trying to dupe people into buying or using services...

Hmmmm, who is Reg? he hasn't e-mailed me his address yet Do wish he wouldn't use my banner in vain though

BTW Ned. I felt certain it wasn't you. You may have your faults (according to others. To me your just an other dealer...), but you've always fought your own fights as far as I can see.

Was it you that was accused of being "just a lowly salesman or something (probably of mobile phones)"?

Ah, MP, when will the jokes end?

Re: Duplicate accounts and traders - Beware

i think if someone is open and honest about the fact that they are a trader then that's fair enough

I'm not that bothered about naming and shaming, though if someone has genuinely been proved to be disingenuous then they should be asked to leave.

I may be in the market for one of those...

Got any others? Must have the latest technology.

Wave Re: Duplicate accounts and traders - Beware

This is where we are, we wrote to all parties involved and asked them to stop posting and invited them to confirm their identity with us within a certain time frame, we had manually done this already but we wanted them to know we were on to the under hand behaviour. We also advised them of this thread and all but one has replied to us with a satisfactory reply yet none have wanted to confirm their identity just yet, therefore if it happens again, we have been advised that we can take action.

We want to expose actions like this and will do our utmost to monitor duplicate account creations, if anyone has a duplicate account and wants us to delete it, you may do so by emailing us at aoforum@alfaowner.com. This will be done professionally and the accounts and relevant posts will be deleted only once we have confirmed the duplication.

Many thanks for your patience and advice which helped us to resolve the issue of duplicate accounts and rogue traders. We have some power in this particular area as no business enjoys bad press, we should stick together more often.

Regards,

Ian

Re: Duplicate accounts and traders - Beware

Hi Ian,

I have a duplicate account. The username is 'Nomad'. Please delete it, and all posts made by it. Thanks.
