ebay bad name

I totally agree that ebay should be on top of this D. My comment was that I hated to see it give legitimate ebay sellers a bad name.

Understood Lynn!

I would bet that this scammer has no idea how he is being popped so quickly with his little scams .... If he only knew that the AIRSTREAM FORUM WATCHDOGS were hot on his tail ..... he would try some other product like an island in Brazil or something!!

Too bad for him .... good for the AS community!!

Fast!

Maybe eBay is starting to catch on. That listing was pulled within an hour.

I can't remember the exact category I'm reporting them on but it's something like- a suspected fraudulent listing that I haven't bid on. I seem to get the ebay email back immediately. I wonder if it has anything to do with the power seller icon next to my ID? I would like to think that they are on to this one but I don't think thats the case because the last 2 ran until exactly the time I reported. Both times I went back to look immediately after I reported and it was gone within a minute or two. I think this one had been up for almost an hour when I noticed it.

Interesting

Lynn-

It is interesting that the listings are gone so fast after a report.

If we put ourselves in eBay's position, we'd have to come up with an automatic rule that deletes bad listings by our scammer. If we deleted anything with a link to an external email, we'd probably delete too many good ones. The more good listings eBay kills, the more "pain" it feels on its bottom line.

But -- if there is a single report of fraud AND an external email link (and possibly the Airstream name) -- then they can be pretty sure it's a scam and delete it. The pain of eBay's reputation loss exceeds the loss of good listings.

If that's true, they are relying on users to police the system. We should be compensated for this, shouldn't we???

ebay compensation

Your right GT! Ebay should provide us with a fee. One of my friends that sells a lot on ebay told me that he had received an email from ebay in the past offering a reward compensation for finding and reporting fraudulent listings. He said it was $100 per report. This is strictly hearsay...he told me this yesterday and I asked him to see if he still had the email saved. He may have it, as I've never known him to throw away anything! You know...we could really use that money for AS parts!!!

That auction that was posted this a.m. had a .o1 buy it now with a contact me before bidding....what has me wondering is when you click on this buy it now it automatically open a letter document window to the scammer I assume. I would be very suspicious of hitting send to anyone playing games with these guys, when you send an e-mail document to them it usually gives them your ebay name. I wouldn't doubt that they could hack right into your account if they saw you had perfect feedback.

I just notified Ebay about that auction, as well as sending the actual Ebay member whose account is being used a note about it. I am sure it will get yanked very soon, one way or another.

Today's scams on eBay

Good catch '65!

Here's an interesting link: http://forums.ebay.com/db2/forum.jsp...ID=107&start=0

It's the Security forum on eBay. One of the stick threads is "Today's Scams in Progress". It's shocking how many there are!

We're only seeing evidence of 1 of 24 active scams going on (we hope!)
