eBay Seller “ezr_rider” Taiwan Counterfeit Dropshipper – True Or False!

We received a message from a viewer, regarding eBay seller “ezr_rider”. The customer claimed to have purchased a Race Face Evolve XC Alloy Seatpost. Upon delivery, the customer discovered the seatpost was a knockoff. After thorough research, the seatpost could not be found on any other website, including the Race Face official website and Amazon.

The customer paid $39.89 plus tax ($42.28) for the seatpost. The shipping label showed the package was shipped from Express 5620 Grace PL, Commerce, CA 90022. A Google search connects the address to TransRush, a Chinese shipping company. This explains the shipping label, which stated the package was shipped from “the shipper not the seller.”

The customer contacted the eBay seller who immediately responded with a return shipping label, with the following address: IDS Online Corp, 2A Corn Rd., Dayton, NJ 08810. A Google search revealed IDS Online Corp is a logistics and fulfillment shipping provider for overseas online vendors.

AnyCubic – Online 3D Laser Printer

During our search, we discovered the unofficial vendor “AnyCubic.” The vendor sells the AnyCubic Mono X, a 3D laser printer. AnyCubic supposedly scammed a customer $760 for a faulty 3D laser printer. The post (see image below) claims the customer requested a refund after months of failed repair attempts. AnyCubic agreed to accept the return with one exception, the customer be responsible for a $900 return shipping fee.

The customer claims to have reached out to the City Hall in Commerce, California. An employee told the customer, the Grace PL address was not legit, as 90022 covers East LA, not Commerce.

AnyCubic has a 2.1-star out of 5 Trustpilot rating. The low rating is related to numerous customer complaints, regarding poor customer service, poor quality products, and refusal to back return/refund policy.

EZR_Rider – Branding Unofficial Products

A Google search revealed Race Face Evolve XC Alloy Seatpost may have never existed. The search rendered a single website “beelinecycles.co.uk” Beeline Bicycles Limited at 205 Cowley Road, Oxford, OX4 1XA. Beeline Bicycles is a private limited company, according to the UK Companies House website.

So, it is possible, the seatpost did exist but is an older version. There is not enough information to make this determination.

ezr_rider eBay store is filled with what looks to be knockoffs. Our research did not render exact matches for most of the products. The products appear in the search, but the designs are different. For example, the Vintage Zokes Pro Bike Suspension is orange and black, while the search rendered red/black, blue/black, and black designs.

eBay seller roz_parts is also offering the same fork. Both ezr_rider and roz_parts are based in Taiwan. It is possible, they are one and the same.

Afterword

It is possible eBay sellers are rebranding Chinese-manufactured knockoffs utilizing outdated, discontinued name-brand products? It is possible since the images just do not add up.

We do not recommend buying from international vendors utilizing the Grace PL address, which is a shipping company. These vendors are nothing more than dropshippers that are rebranding Chinese-manufactured products to make them look legit.

Nayzayerz reached out to Race Face. A representative emailed back, with the following message, “I wouldn’t order anything through eBay or Amazon.”

Enough said, heed this advice or take the risk of buying knockoff products at brand-name prices.
