Thought it may be useful to have a list of mocs that we should not be buying

I will start off with

Yakult - copied from Pigsback-securuty info & copy warning removed by seller
£5 Eukanuba - Not accepted in Tesco but being sold as ok for Tesco
£5 Huggies - copied from original Huggies voucher and sold/selling multiples
£6 Airwick - have expired but some sellers have doctored that info and are selling as exp 3/09 when exp was 08


The following have been blocked/not accepeted in Tesco - I assume they can be used elsewhere

Betty Crocker- not working in Sainsburys
Glayva
£1 Mitchum
Hagen Daz

Also avoid titles/listings such as £10 money off coupons scan in tesco etc with no details of what MOC's you are bidding for and no photo. Seller is well known for selling copy coupons

Please reply to this post with the moc that should be avoided and I will add to this post
Can I also ask that we don't get into heated debated regarding the selling and use of these coupons.

Thanks to everyone who helped compile information especially angelic :)

Airwick £6 coupons - were valid last year but have now expired. Some sellers seem to have "doctored" these coupons to show a new expiry date - but they are still coupon
net vouchers which should not have been copied as they were limited to one per person.

Glayva - not fake but blocked by T

Huggies £5

Great post Tyrole :)

Please could I suggest info could be added to explain why not to buy eg -
Date known to have been altered
Pigsback MOC with security info removed
etc
Copies from original coupons
Not sold in T's but claimed in listing to scan in T's

£6 Airwick - date altered by seller (claiming expiry 3/09) real expiry was 08!
£5 Huggies Nappies - copied from original Huggies voucher and sold/selling multiples
£5 Eukanuba - not accepted in T's but being sold as OK for T's
£2 Glayva - blocked by T's, again sold as scanning in T's

Also avoid titles/listings such as £10 money off coupons scan in tesco etc with no details of what MOC's you are bidding for and no photo. Seller is well known for selling copy coupons ;)

Sorry I was a bit slow compiling my list so other posts went on before mine.

Following my thread here http://www.paidtoshop.co.uk/showthread.php?t=52101

I have bought some Yakult coupons from this seller just out of interest (No intention of using them).
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBay (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=330302650604&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=014)
They have arrived and look like this..

These look different to the pigsback ones, but have a similar looking barcode.

This person removed their Yakult listing earlier .... this coincided with a mention on here not long before the removal.

If there was any other Yakult coupon other than the Pigsback one - which was one print per Pigsback member - I am sure it would have been mentioned on here?

There are currently 3 other Ebay sellers all selling dodgy Yakult coupons -
one is a regular Ebay seller known for selling dodgy printed coupons.
Anyone know if they are also members here?

Giz and/or mods??? Are we allowed to type links to the actual ebay auctions which should be avoided?? It just might make it even clearer to people as to which auctions to avoid.

No problems if not - would just like to know for certain what is and isn't allowed to be posted. (If it is allowed I am more than happy to list the ones I know of!!)

I have been having a trawl through the ebay coupon pages and it is very horrible reading. Too many to pick out all of them but just two

300287106289

Selling £1 Mitchums and says they will scan in all supermarkets including Tesco. This seller lives right next to a giant Tesco which has always hated print off MOCs and at best takes 10%

And then there is this list

http://shop.ebay.co.uk/merchant/chickensducksandgeese76

Fuzzy . . these certainly look like fakes . . . . . .

all the seller has done is move around the various elements of the original coupon, and leave out the individual identifying descriptors, including the secondary barcode . . I'd give these a wide berth - - (but then - I'm known for being sensible!!!):)

If the seller isn't keen to refund (expect they will be if they read this forum) don't forget you can file a PayPal dispute ;)

As for feedback, leave a calm and factual comment such as -

Beware!! Seller has altered original coupon, selling fraudulent copies

I would put some of it or all of it in capitals so there is no chance of the comment being missed :D
You can use your follow up comment to reply back should the seller try to diss your comment :D

Don't forget to also drop the start ratings where appropriate as suspension can also be helped along by overall % being below a certain figure ;)

angelic

I forgot to add - if seller requests return of the fake coupons, you can refuse and can offer to pass them on to Trading Standards who I am sure will be interested in them and the seller's details ;)

I always email them now if I spot anything iffy just to see what response I get and always the answers are untruthfull. Its great fun, I pretend to be a complete novice and ask basic questions to see what response I get!

The worst of this one is that this Tesco is on the edge of my patch but I've only used it 3 times because thye are so difficult with MOCs.

I bought in good faith some of the £5 huggies and received a refund within minutes of complaining about the fact that these were very poorly done scanned off copies despite the seller saying "no refunds". I have so far reported this seller every time I see another of her listings for these damn vouchers (7 times now since I purchased) and Ebay have only acknoweldged my report once! In my last report I told them I would continue to report until they sat up and took notice. I see that this seller has an alter i.d (same location, same picture, way too much of a coincidence) selling same and same "buyer" has left feedback for an alleged purchase for both. Seems like seller has "friends" buying just to leave good feedback as strangely only a few (inc me) have left negatives for fake coupons.

Seller asked that I return coupons, however am still holding on to them because I am still torn as to whether to involve their local tax office/trading standards as advised by another member on here. My prob is I dont want it to come back and bite me on the ar*e which knowing my luck could happen.

All I want right now is for ebay to take my report seriously.

I know these vouchers to be fake because about a year ago I had a £6 from huggies themselves following a complaint and I know these vouchers to be high quality glossy as you would expect not 80g economy paper with bleeding ink!

This seller has sold 35 x £30 Tesco Gift Cards in just over a week. I think it is highly likely that the dodgy MOCS are being used to fund these and given the amount involved (£1150 in a week) and the relatively few Tesco stores in that area, Tesco may well cotton on and investigate.

OMG, so is this person buying a few bits of shopping and adding a £30 gift card and then paying for most of it with MOCs ????? How on earth is she using that ammount - maybe over £15 - £20 of MOCs at a time.

I did a big sort out of my MOCs this week and at the very most I dont think there is more than maybe £20 of MOCs, all valid, all different, you can use without using lots of duplicates - also very few big value MOCs. Is she possibly printing off several airwicks and using a few with each shop ????

:eek: That sounds very dodgy. If these are being bought with the high value airwick print off MOC's perhaps someone in the Tesco Store is in on it. Otherwise how could £1150 be passed in a week.

I'm happy to be corrected then Button - thank you!!! However I rang Tesco about these - using the product search number - and they told me that those items weren't stocked by Tesco so it sounds like you're lucky your store has them. I've bought from that seller before with no problems - but now they've put me on their "blocked bidders" list as they didn't want me to leave feedback. This was before they even reponded to my query on whether or not Tesco sold the items so it did make me very mad. I got a number of emails from them regarding the mocs - basically saying that their till operator allows them through so they must be fine - never actually answered whether or not the stores sell the product though!! I will now continue to avoid that seller though as I have lost trust in them - what with blocking me from bidding, and also the fact that they sell the internet Eukanuba mocs aswell - also telling people to use them in Tesco (even though they are also a member on here who knows that these can't be redeemed by Tesco).

If anyone has bought dodgy doctored coupons / fakes etc please report to Ebay and please leave appropriate feedback to warn others.
Also mark down the star rating on description as a far enough drop on star ratings will facilitate removal of the seller from Ebay.

Ebay will respond if they get enough complaints about a seller, but sometimes it takes time.

Please also report the seller to the Trading Standards office in their area - easy to find via Google and offer to send the coupons purchased.
It is an offence to sell dodgy coupons and TS can and will take action.

Anyone selling on Ebay and declaring themselves as a Business Seller has to abide by additional trading rules - DSR's.
Not declaring as a Business Seller, but obviously trading as a business is very risky too.

I am really really gutted and mad about this. This seller, who is not a member on here :rolleyes:....... lives about 20 miles away from me. I have a reasonablly MOC friendly store in my town that I believe this seller travels to - at least the member on here who says she is not the seller on Ebay, travels to and uses my store! Well, I can surely wave bye bye to my days of MOCing. I have tried to be really careful when MOCing, ensuring that I stick to their rules - this is really ****ing me off! :mad:

Now correct me if I am wrong and by the sound of it I have missed a thread where this has been discussed before but they deffo are a member on here

Anyway,whoever it is can be sure that I, DH, DS and everyone else I know with an Ebay account will be reporting them. It is blatant fraud!

By all means make us aware of Ebay sellers that are selling fake mocs but please please keep personal feelings about these people to yourself.

no wonder my tesco dont accept coupons any more :(

2 identical listings but differant dates on the vouchers GRRR

i cant stand this ebay seller after buying some eukanuba coupons last year
I've just reported this seller. This is the categories I used.. is this right?

>Banned Items >Items with face value(currency, coupons) >counterfeit currency.
Then I added this text in the box -

"sells 'doctored' coupons that are fake and this constitutes fraud."

I think what was established on the missed threads is that you say you are not pokerofaces but that people who have bought on Ebay from you have evidence that you shared a PayPal address with pokerofaces and you have chosen not to explain that point and the apparent connection between you.

I hope I've summed it up correctly

The lady who bought 10 lots has also bought from the other seller chcikensandgeese or whatever her user name is, the seller who also sells other dodgy MOCs so she has lots of Glayva MOCs which wont scan. Some people will never learn.

The worst of this is that I recognize one name from the click list. I really have to email her and tell her that she has bought fakes but I am dreading this.

Just felt I have to say that it is a true saying that "every dog gets it's day" - I am not saying that any of the sellers are "dogs" just that those who are selling fake MOC's are running the risk of being prosecuted and ending up with a criminal record as like Mr T being a member on many sites like this there will also be manufacturers searching E-Bay when the supermarkets try to claim their money back.

Please anyone who is a member of PTS and selling coupons which they shouldn't - have a conscience - you will spoil it for everyone including yourself as when the supermarkets stop these coupons no-one will buy from you.

The sellers whom are selling fakes know that they are doing wrong, but simply don't care . . for their greed suggests that their "I'm alright Jack' approach means that they only care about their own pocket - and not the situation of the hard-up buyers whom are desperately trying to make their money go a little further in these difficult times, not realising (until too late!!!!) that they've been conned, and ripped-off.

Totally agree with you but just felt that I had to say it - I don't use many coupons (still to scared for a knockback) but know that some people do and do so correctly and why not - but to see sellers abusing the system just make me really angry.

What I would like to know is do these sellers use the fake coupons in the supermarkets??????

Yup i certainly dont read most of the threads. However most of us read what is relevant to us. So if you buy sell on ebay you'd think people would read threasd such as this.

Otherwise they are knowingly buying fakes and taking the risk as the rewards are high whilst they last.

In this case a single coupon worth £6 which is being sold for pennies as internet print off

I would agree not everyone reads everything, but I bet there can't be many members / lurkers who don't read any of the MOC threads.

So many times while on there, you will see names at the bottom of MOC threads also viewing and there are usually more lurkers than regs.

I don't think any regular member could fail to have read about doctored / copied etc MOC's on Ebay so to be still buying them really is inexcusable and is as bad as those PTSers known or alleged to be selling them :mad:

This is why the sellers will continue to sell....supply and demand because buyers will continue to buy. For every fake seller, you will have at least one,, buyer who uses them knowing that they are fake but are still happy to get money of their shopping.

Unfortunately, some people don't seem to look past the end of their nose. Yes they might get their shopping cheap this week/month using fake Mocs but what about when Tesco stop the Moc usage altogether?

mhoc
15th February 2009, 14:12
Also (a bit off topic) but people should really not have the same usernames for everything esp PTS, Ebay and paypal - Mr t stalks PTS on a regular basis so if he can find you on PTS, he can also find what you have bought or sold on ebay. And if you have bought fake £6 MOCs and been using them with your clubcard all the info can be tied together.

I dread to think but I assume some people are using the same password for all three as well.

the airwick one was stopped by tesco & it was only available for a short time. there are enough posts on the printable coupon thread month after month about using copied coupons & coupon misuse that no ptser should have any excuse for using these 2 coupons in tesco.

the last time these were about they did actually scan on anything( think i have seen this listing on ebay) so this maybe why someone has bought them. think they should be tesco specific though.

So if these are genuine I presume they have come from the Pharmacy 'Winter Packs' which I have read about? I presume they will still work if buying the product which I was intending to use them for anyway?..... I love Actimel but not that much! :D

Yes I saw these listed and was very tempted but with the current uneasy situation with MOCs I didnt make a bid. If thye had put smaller lots, say £10 or £20s worth with a BIN price that would ahve been much better. Possibly someone who works in a certain store who wanted to off load them ASAP.

I was hoping it was a PTS who might put a few on their lists - always worth trying a few and I actually do buy actimel.

Just had another thought, perhaps this is the way around this to prevent hoax MOCs, for food manufactuers to go back to putting MOCs onto the actual wrappers as there used to be a great deal more of - these must be far more difficult to copy. So a shopper actually has to buy a product to get a MOC for her next purchase

Mmmm - in truth it can cause logistical problems for the distribution teams - and producing limited edition labels is quite an expensive exercise ( certainly dearer than short-run coupons)

. . and, of course, an accomplished printer can still copy them.

The major benefit of individual coupons is that they can be handed out to prospective customers in-stores, shopping centres, or even by direct mail, and thus the manufacturer can (hopefully) persuade one to buy their brand of dishwasher tablets instead of their competitors

But I do understand where you're coming from mhoc . . . and you're right to believe that the industry in general will tighten up

Are these the ones with 'doctored' dates?

First seller is allegedly related to Pokerbabe (her sister I think?) on here so maybe she can clarify for you Fuzz?

Second seller has rather a lot of Eukanuba coupons yet claims in her description that they are "genuine" and is obviously put out that he/she has competition.
As this seller is known to have sold a large quantity of fake Huggies coupons (see Ebay thread), so I would have my doubts.

I should be able to let you know in the next few weeks for certain. For some reason some people have bought these items from both these sellers and forwarded them to me (together with their transaction histories with ebay :confused:. I'm not sure if they are genuine or not so I have sent them to Eukanuba with a covering letter asking if they can confirm they are genuine as I haven't had the email myself with these new dates - so as soon as Eukanuba reply to me I'll keep you all posted.

I am sure Eukanuba will be very interested in your letter and the Ebay information.
Hopefully they won't take too long to reply, thanks for letting us know you will update when they do :)

Been on and reported all 4 auctions. Thanks G&F for pointing us in the right direction.

It's disgusting how some sellers can get away with selling out of date and doctored printable coupons on ebay. It's no wonder stores are clamping down on coupon use. It's these type of sellers that ruin it for everyone else.

The Actimel ones that were out last year were different to this, and they were not designed as a 'little leaflet' with 2 parts IYSWIM.

Funnily enough I was shown one of these Actimel mocs today so I know these are genuine and from a current promotion.

It just so happened that I bumped into my friend whose daughter does a paper round...and she knows about my couponing and sometimes shares her spares with me (there are always some leaflets left over after the free paper delivery).

Anyhoo she only had one with her and was gonna test it today without buying Actimel, sadly I didn't see her after she had been thru the till so I don't know if it scanned. But I think it will because Actimel ones have done in the past (like the Spanish Choc ones from the GFS leaflet do, in spite of the Tesco logo).

All I can say is they are genuine and probably come from a newsagent or someone with a paper round. What I don't know is if they would scan without buying Actimel (and if they do scan this week they could always be blocked next week I suppose).

So there's nowt dodgy about them but there's a risk you'd have to buy Actimel every day to make them work, lol!

Ebay just dont care. :( I am reporting away with the rest of you, but they keep being relisted and people are obvioulsy doing things like using new ID's which surely must make ebay realise that what we are all saying is true.

As far as I'm aware Navara - the only coupons that have been multi'd on PTS for quite some long while are the genuine internet non-restricted print ones . . (where the very fact that the retailers will only accept one of each coupon (if NSS) is sufficiently limiting)

Indeed, I will use coupons like this when I find them . . . .

The Yeo Valley coupon should be downloaded once per person so if you copy it then make a multi sheet, as I see it it's no different to what is being reported on ebay.But then i don't use MOC's very often so i'll just keep quiet

if the coupon is only downloadable once per pc then it is copied then you are correct in that it is no different ( ok maybe a little less servere since the airwick & eukabana coupons are for very large amounts) but i only use multiprint sheets to save paper and not to make fake/fraudulent coupons. furthermore i do not doctor them in anyway, which is what is happening on ebay.
just my opinion though :D

Not fakes, but this seller is openly admitting using out of date mocs :mad:

http://shop.ebay.co.uk/merchant/brazilsambaskills10

About 10 lots over the next few days, many of the mocs look like food show ones. The auction that finished last night had no bids, thankfully.

The price of postage is incredibly steep at £8.94, ebay might take more notice if they were reported for fee avoidence.

This looks like the one I reported the other day, so ebay are acting with their usual sense of urgency. I have reported again. I noticed one of his sales has got a 99p bid this morning and he has relsited the one that did not sell :mad:

I wonder if he has gone mad buying GFS from ebay before Christmas and over estimated how many he could use up? Hence the strange postal ammount, trying to recoup losses? Long way (and expensive) to go from Cardiff to Brum to go to the GFS himself?????

My reply from Airwick in regard to the Antrim Card-sharp is copied below


Thank you for your email regarding Airwick Coupons being sold on eBay.
We are aware of this issue and have reported the seller to eBay as they are not genuine coupons.
May I thank you for bringing this to our attention and recommend you report the seller to Ebay, as the more complaints received, the more likely it is that action will be taken against the seller.
We hope this will be resolved as soon as possible and thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us.
Kind Regards Airwick



In turn I have replied to Airwick pointing out that if they report them to Ebay as forgeries - then eBay will take notice of them - and so will the Police, and they might also like to get in touch with Eukanuba and General Mills Ltd

It would be good if anyone had any other genuine coupon from Couponnet or whichever printable company this one came from originally so we could compare.

I don't often use printables, but sure there should be some sort of security coding which is obviously not there.
Whole coupon looks very "bare", sure there are other bits also missing?

Original Airwick £6 printable had expiry date of 26 10 08 - this one has now got yet another "newly doctored" expiry date :rolleyes:

Start a PayPal dispute (Not as Described) and see what PayPal say to you.
Explain the coupons have been doctored etc and refer to seller's feedback.
As there are likely to have been previous complaints re this seller/her coupons, I doubt you would need to prove they are fake.
If you are asked to, come back and ask for help.

Good that you have contacted both Airwick and Trading Standards - no wonder the seller wants you to return them ;)

Ebay state I have to wait 10 days to start a dispute, but if I go through Paypal, it's giving me 2 options -

Copy of original, eg bootleg pirated copy, or photocopy.

or

Imitation, eg Counterfeit bag, clothing, watch.

Which should i choose, as it's a made up coupon. If i tick Imitation, will they ask for proof?

That's the whole point....it is NOT identical.
The ebay one is missing the Valassis code on the bottom right, the Personal Identification number at the top right, and the barcode also has a different number font.
There is no way that the retailer can redeem it,without a Valassis code, and no way to show where it came from, without the PIN.
The vendor should be locked up.

The comment under the bottom of the original Airwick printable is interesting ...

Void if
Copied, altered, reproduced, auctioned, sold, traded, transferred or assigned. Any such misuse or other misuse constitutes fraud.

No worries that the coupon has nothing on it to trace it back to the seller. That proof is all in the hands of Ebay/PayPal ;)

Dear oh dear!!...

You've got to laugh at the poor seller though - have you seen the most recent feedback they've got??

"AVOID!!! These are not accepted in any Tesco store even though I bought the item" - obviously posted by a disgruntled purchaser

But the really funny part is the seller response to that negative feedback - "Why on earth did you think Tesco take these, they clearly say Pet stores!!"

How stupid does the seller think people are?? For goodness sake the sellers auction even states -

"These vouchers can be used in

Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Waitrose

(without purchasing the product)

The store must stock the item"

And even the listing of the auction reads: " £30 money off coupon 5 x £6 AIRWICK voucher TESCO NSS "

Do these sellers really believe that people reading the feedback won't see what I've just pointed out?? I hope the buyer has reported this item to ebay as the auction definately states Tesco as accepting them in the title and the body of the advert!!

Something else perhaps worth mentioning. If people just check out who is currently reading this thread when they are about and look for names that crop up but don't post on here as I am pretty sure that the sellers will be back with new names to watch our every move!

I have been reporting these fakes for months and Ebay just are not interested. I really hope that these companies are doing more than just hitting the report button on Ebay or I fear nothing more will be done to stop them.

It worries me how much demand is still out there for these fake coupons though because it is only supply and demand keeping these going.

Yes it always worries me as well, when I have a look at the ebay threads or the printed MOC threads and now the hoax MOC threads, how often there are lurkers who have never posted a single word on any thread. I think I might keep a list of any names I see. There is one lurking now who has been a member since June 2008.

I've had 2 of my sales taken down and this happened very quickly. Once I was selling an old work tie but the sale was taken down because old uniforms cant be sold for x number of years after the company no longer existed. I suppose it was logical really but its not a rule that very few people would know about and you would have to be in that particualar industry to know which companies still existed and which did not.. And needless to say there were at least 6 other sales going at the time selling old uniform ties and ebay did not close these sales.

About the same time I'd reported a seller for doing a direct copy and paste of one of my listings - as always it had taken a few days and a few reports to get ebay to take notice and take action. I had let the other seller know before reporting him to give him a fair chance - I know now that doing the polite thing is not always the correct thing.
And then the tie sale was taken off, not a coincidence I think so the other seller must have know the obscue rule about old uniforms

I knew it wouldn't be long before these hit ebay! I haven't bothered printing this one off as it is so big and not worth the hassle of reducing it by tampering it for the sake of £1! Also, strictly speaking, it is not for use by joe public.

I have just called paypal and after 12 minutes on hold got to speak to a Irish fella who told me I have to produce a document from Trading Standards, stating that they are in possession of the coupons.
... and it must be in the form of a letter.

why not just photocopy the coupons sent to you to send them back to the seller, surley they wouldn't know the difference lol:cool:

If you read the Ebay forum at all, they have a team of ebayers that sit at home most of the time policing the listings to see what they can report just few examples - DVD's ( copies that have come in from Maylasia) and also handbags that one is a biggy and most of these people know the rules inside out and it could have been someone that's jealous that you have something that might prove more valuable than they have.

This seller Dizneypixiedust very cleverly lists her auction as being NSS mocs which scan beautifully at Tesco!! However these mocs that she currently selling are for items which Tesco DO NOT STOCK so please do not buy unless you are using the mocs in a store which does sell the item.
The mocs were for Whites Oats products
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150325969718


If Tesco does sell these items then I'm more than happy to be corrected!!!


My oh my !!!

I emailed the seller earlier to find out if these mocs are stocked by Tesco and received no reply. However after checking that they are stocked at Waitrose I thought I would buy a set as I use mocs in there. Lo and behold the seller has blocked me from buying any mocs from them!!! Now come on - is that a guilty consience or what??? Must be frightened of possible feedback or am I just paranoid??

So please people - avoid like the plague - Dizneypixiedust !!!


I hate rouge sellers as much as the next person but my store definitely sells these - I bought some yesterday and ate them this morning. :D YUM!


I'm happy to be corrected then Button - thank you!!! However I rang Tesco about these - using the product search number - and they told me that those items weren't stocked by Tesco so it sounds like you're lucky your store has them. I've bought from that seller before with no problems - but now they've put me on their "blocked bidders" list as they didn't want me to leave feedback. This was before they even reponded to my query on whether or not Tesco sold the items so it did make me very mad. I got a number of emails from them regarding the mocs - basically saying that their till operator allows them through so they must be fine - never actually answered whether or not the stores sell the product though!! I will now continue to avoid that seller though as I have lost trust in them - what with blocking me from bidding, and also the fact that they sell the internet Eukanuba mocs aswell - also telling people to use them in Tesco (even though they are also a member on here who knows that these can't be redeemed by Tesco).


I'm probably one of the 1% who try to read everything!!

Mind you - my "ebay seller to avoid" seems to be following me around PTS at the moment and quoting all my posts that I've made re them (back to me) via ebay messages :confused: If they are that concerned with posts that I make about them couldn't they just pm me on here to discuss like adults or would that mean giving away their PTS user name and they prefer to hide behind their ebay user name instead??

:wave: if you're reading this post too Dizneypixiedust


I should be able to let you know in the next few weeks for certain. For some reason some people have bought these items from both these sellers and forwarded them to me (together with their transaction histories with ebay :confused:. I'm not sure if they are genuine or not so I have sent them to Eukanuba with a covering letter asking if they can confirm they are genuine as I haven't had the email myself with these new dates - so as soon as Eukanuba reply to me I'll keep you all posted.

Hi everyone

Apology time from me to the ebay seller dizneypixiedust :o

Some of you may remember me saying to avoid this seller as they were selling Whites NSS coupons and saying to use them in Tesco. Having checked with both Whites and Tesco I can now confirm that the Whites products are only stocked by Tesco in their Northern Ireland stores - but not in England, Scotland or Wales. Whilst I still don't agree with the description of the mocs being ok to use in Tesco (my store will only take if stores in mainland Britain stock the item) I can no longer say they are not stocked in the UK as obviously Northern Ireland is part of the UK.

I think (actually I know) I was also slightly biased against this seller as they were also selling Eukanuba coupons which they descibe as being accepted wherever Eukanuba stocked. Now we all know that even though Tesco stock the item (well some stores do) they can't redeem the coupons as they are not "official" Eukanuba stockists.

Even though I can't say I agree with the Eukanuba coupons being sold like this - I can now confirm that the mocs this sellers is selling on ebay are 100% not copies/downloads or printed like the other sellers on ebay. They are in fact genuine original mocs which are from Eukanuba marketing. (I didn't know this before as I'm a blocked bidder on their auctions!!).

SO - I apologise for putting Dizneypixiedust name on the seller to avoid list - I might not agree with the wordings of their listing of their auctions but they at least are not selling copied coupons.

And needless to say ebay did not pull these despite several of us reporting them and the sales finished yesterday :(

A few days ago I emailed the seller of these regarding which stores accept these and got this reply

http://shop.ebay.co.uk/merchant/ibby126_W0QQ_nkwZQQ_armrsZ1QQ_fromZQQ_mdoZ

Yes all supermarkets take these vouchers, including Tesco. I have checked if they work at 2 Tesco stores and they do, so there shouldnt be any problems in redeeming these.

Well yes I suppose he could have used them quite a long while back - I shoudl really have asked if hed used them recently
