    Strange e-bay feedback

    Curious to know if anyone has come across something like this before or has an explanation as to how it can come about?

    Seller has feedback as seller for items which, when accessed in sales history, lead to listings from other sellers.

    An example below:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Blancpain...4AAOSwT69bLTWQ

    Seems very dubious - a few high priced watches listed, with only one line descriptions. Check the feedback as seller - 3 of the 4 accessible items lead to different sellers?!

    Just curious, not considering purchasing anything anyway :).

    I think what you're seeing is eBay being clever. It should lead to the original listing but because it has ended, it shows you "something similar".

    This. It's a new eBay "feature", which is causing havoc. Click on the left on "View Original Item" and you'll see it when you go to a previous sales page.

    eBay control feedback and sales history, there is no way a user can "fake" that listing under their username.

    Agreed with the above. Another dumb new "feature" by eBay.

    This is new ebay garbage. There have been several “updates” and this is a new one. Trying to drum up more business/interest.
