Goodness when you look up seller's 'see other items' it amazing how many for sale items (vehicles) he supposedly has for sale!

The lowlife behind these listings has been listing other folks cars at silly prices for years. I report him to ebay regularly but they just let him relist. He hijacks other peoples ebay accounts. By looking at his IP address I have located him as being in London. Sadly scammers are all too common. About time Plod put more effort into catching such people than chasing us responsible motorists

Particularly prolific this morning - as always I reported to eBay but they are pretty useless at preventing this idiot. The fact that these same adverts have been appearing for years sadly suggests some people are still falling for them.

Billy Nomates??

I know it doesn't really hit the scammers but makes me feel a little better..

...and maybe Fleabay will look at the commission they're losing and up their game a little ?

Reported all this sellers listings hours ago, ebay have done nothing - they're all still live. All they need to do is get the posters IP and report it to Plod.

Crisis of conscience for them.

They probably keep taking the listing fees.

If they give them back when its taken down then they probably hope no-one spots it and reports it so it stays up and they keep the fees.

It must be going on with plenty of other items too.
