Ethically Speaking - March 2010

During the past month, two new Ethics complaints were filed, one was closed with no action, and two non-member companies were banned from Tradeloop.

In case #5061, the complainant alleged that the defendant - Perpetual Action Group - failed to completely fill a prepaid order and inadequately packaged the product that was shipped. The defendant was banned from Tradeloop for failing to respond to the complaint.

In case #5062, the dispute involved the non-shipment of prepaid goods and failure to provide a refund. The defendant defendant and complainant were unable to resolve the dispute and the Ethics Committee voted to ban the defendant, Discount Computers, Inc., and post the case to the community.

Many Ethics complaints involve Tradeloop members who arrange deal with non-members who haven't been screened by Tradeloop and haven't agreed to abide by our strict Code of Ethics. We urge all Tradeloop members to do extra due diligence when dealing with non-members.

Case #5057 was closed with no action taken after the discussion stalled between the complainant and defendant.

Two new cases are still in the information-gathering stage.
