    Thumbs Down Beware of this scammer on Ebay

    I have been following some of the listings from this seller, and he is running a pretty nice scam. Since I noticed him, this has been his forth account. He always does the same scam, he builds up a small positive feedback score buying items for .99 cents and then lists a bunch of watches at great prices. Once he selles alot of watches he then opens another account and starts again .He may send one item but most if not all his buyers never get any item that they won. Most of the buyers will probably get some type of refund, but it amazes me how easily he can pull off this scam, over and over again. His old acconts get shut down and then he start again, in the mean time he just keeps making money

    Here is his new account with a listing:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Casio-G-Shock-Solar-Atomic-Watch-MTG-900DA-8V_W0QQitemZ270321357153QQihZ017QQcategoryZ31387QQ ssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Here is his previous account which will likely get shut down soon when all the negatives start coming in , just like his other accounts

    Thanks for the heads up. I prefer honesty, it is much easier to maintain over the long run.

    The negatives have started to roll in on his older account which I am sure will probably be closed pretty soon.

    His new account will look just like this in a month as well

    Based on their fee structure, you would think Ebay would have the funds to keep a better tab on guys like this. Guess not...

    They don't care. Ebay's only agenda is to make money...


    ...everything else is merely window dressing to help make them more money.
