Seller on eBay selling cheap cam labelled as Wyze V2

I have seen several eBay sellers selling cheap cameras and the description labels them as Wyze cameras. How do they get away with that when it is obviously not a Wyze cam?

My guess it is because he is not ‘actually’ selling it as a WYZE V2, if you go down the whole page it lists product name as Mini HD Cam, I think he is putting WYZE in the title to steer traffic his way. I agree it should be taken down, but I am not an attorney and do not know if it is something actionable.

Yeah, sounded like a sleazy ploy to me too. I had done a search on “Wyze Cam” when I found that one. There are others like it as well.

I imagine they are all over since WYZE is becoming more and more popular

I wish I had discovered them earlier. I just wish there was a way to monitor them on my laptop. It would be really nice to have a pop up alert to a motion sensor being tripped while I am on my PC.

Well, if you have not voted on the link below you may want to go vote for it and show WYZE this is something you want.

Honestly, it sort of looks like a mistake. It appears to be a large seller with good feedback overall. If they’re selling Wyze cams, too, maybe they got some wires crossed on the listing.

I don’t think it is a mistake. It’s like tagging in a way. If the Wyze name is in the auction listing title and the buyer like myself does a search for “Wyze Cam” like I did, then that listing is going to show up in my search results just like it did. It is switch bait plain and simple as far as I see it. Try it and see.

Thanks for that tip! I was vote number 2500. I wish I could vote multiple times. :wink:

True, and I’ve seen similar things where it says “Compare to Wyze Arlo Blink blah blah” but the title on this one literally says it’s a Wyze cam, which it’s obviously not. If that was their standard practice on most of their listings, I feel like their feedback would be a lot more negative.

Common technique forever used on fleabay to get products to appear more often in search results.

If Wyze did not sell their cameras so darn cheap maybe they could afford a robust legal department to go after them.

You say that like it is a bad thing. :laughing:
