Notice of Tradesy being in investigated for violation of Federal law
Its me again; Andre Setyon. For the record you are still holding thousands of dollars that I earned through sales on Tradesy. Secondly, you are still holding my intellectual property as well as personal property. The items you said were returned because they were alleged fakes. I can with certainty tell you that I can prove that at least one of the items that you purchased was not. "I have an invoice from tiffany's with it listed. It's the 3rd one down and references the original invoice #. It was purchased through tiffany.com."
There's more. We have proof that you Penny have some sold counterfeit products. YOU are in serious violation of the law. Many laws in fact. See the agency. below that our legal representation will file with. I say our because we will be opening a class action lawsuit shortly.
Lastly, under my First Amendment rights, we will be spending thousands of dollars on ads exposing you and directing people to ethical sites. There are many.
If you'd like to discuss as fair and reasonable settlement that would avoid costly litigation, kindly let me know. Otherwise, we have no other recourse.

Here's just a small sampling of some complaints against you:
"I am sorry I did not check reviews before we purchased a Louis Vuitton handbag from Tradesy.My husband, who by no means is a purse expert, was the first one to open the box when we received it and he knew instantly it was a fake.
He took the bag to Saks and they confirmed. He returned within a day and Tradesy responded that they had their "authentication" team confirm it was real Louis Vuitton. HA! We are currently trying to get our money back.
Yesterday, we contacted a lawyer about our options, contacted a friend who is a well respected SEO to help us launch an intense internet campaign against this company, and this morning I am contacting the city in which the package was sent from police department(the seller put her name and address on the package, so we lucked out there) to alert them. Usually fake handbags are a huge ring. This fight isn't over yet.
Next time I will just wait a couple extra months and just buy from the real thing.Please don't use the same mistake we did...never buy from Tradesy!!!"
"I MADE OVER $4,239.00 In sales during black friday and i tried to log into my account to confirm purchases and ship out items , as soon as i tried to log in my account i noticed it was suspended , i contacted tradesy for over a week and i received no response , i was a excellent seller and i followed all the guidelines , i dont understand what i did wrong ! i had over $2500 sitting in my tradesy account waiting to be transfered to my checking on top of the $4,239.00 i made ! This site is absolutely rigged and someone needs to do something about it asap , I actually thought about filing a police report considering they do have a tradesy office in santa monica , hopefully someone can investigate them."
