greenteapass ( 10250) Not a registered user

Registered as an Ebay user on September 11, 2006,  Jin Won Seo, also known as Greenteapass is known for his gorilla buying tactics on Ebay.  This account is well known across Ebay for buying with the intent to ask for partial or full refunds after the merchandise has been delivered in mint condition or by using PayPal to charge back purchases on the inexperienced seller that does not know enought to use tracking, delivery confirmation or signed receipts for shipments.

Greenteapass is a Korean company with a California based proxy  who has a large customer base in Asia .  His business model is to make purchases from American sellers on Ebay and resell them to his Asian clients.  The more he is able to rip off his victims, the higher is income becomes.

As of June 6, 2008 to the sound of Ebay sellers everywhere sighing with relief, Greenteapass is no longer a registered user, but don’t let your guard down yet!  It is rumored that Greenteapass is still making fraudelent purchases on Ebay under a drove of new buying I.D.’s which are yet to be discovered, and lets not forget the several older buying I.D.’s:

greenteapass, cocoapass, geopass, geoctober and rarepass are all associated with the business alliance found on

  1. And now with only positive feedback allowed for buyers he will be more successful than ever. There will not be one red mark to warn sellers. So you’ll have to be willing to read through a sea of “positive” feedback for warning signs.

    Sellers will need to make an effort to ruin his name in Korea.

  2. Better yet, in the U.S. If EVERYONE who read this takes a quiet moment to email all of the local U.S. Branches of his company here:

    and only state that Jin Won Seo aka greanteepass aka geopass on eBay is suspected of federal fraud. They are entitled to know who they’re working for. Workplace rumors spread fast. Shame him in the board room.

  5. GEOPASS/GREENTEAPASS’s main Ebay id’s were suspended recently but they have others that are active. Google them. They are infamous. They have obtained tens of thousands of items for free via PayPal routines and credit card chargebacks. The problem is, they are a buyer. Buyers can only receive positives now. Any new id’s will be free of negative feedback no matter what he does. There is already a campaign going. If everyone sends a group inquiry to these email addresses below regarding the question of U.S. and International fraudulent activity by Jin Won Seo then it will have an impact. Simpy ask for a comment or information about reports of Jin Won Seo of, and the eBay id’s geopass, greenteapass, cocoapass, and rarepass committing credit card fraud against other merchants and buyers worldwide. Someone may have an opinion to bring some clarity. His name may not even be real.

    This is a group of people who order items for customers in Korea who cannot make international purchases on their own. YOU the seller are used as a reverse “SellItNow” store in which the customer in Korea selects the item that they want off of eBay, then the geopass team buys it for them. Any refunds that the geopass team can get from your or from PayPal is just a boost in their profit. (suspected) (suspected) (suspected) (suspected) (suspected)

    You can cut and paste the above links into the email for their reference. All of these email addresses were collected in the public domain of the internet and are not part of any of the eBay id’s. They are to company employees all over the U.S., Canada, and Korea. Some are high business partners of other companies so word your inquiry to everyone. Block all of those id’s for good measure. I’d email one random address and then blind cc the rest. If people can actually see the bulk list they will be more likely to dismiss it or filter it. If something bounces back then resend it individually. He finally bit the wrong person. Make no accusations. Just ask them if they are aware of this dishonorable activity.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
