these threads keep springing up fast as eBay can shut them down:
and another news story on Auction Bytes:
Fox News, CNN and The Wall Street Journal will be running stories about it Monday morning and the SEC/FTC has been notified also. Wouldn't be surprised to see a class action suit against them. This is basically fraud
since they're a publicly traded company. Purposely reporting false numbers has severe penalties.
Our listings were buried under a pile of fake listings that ebay put there. This made it harder for people to find our listings and resulted in a drop in sales for us. They took money from us so we could list our items and then
they buried them with phony listings that competed against us. Bad-faith dealings.
Here is one of many live recorded screenshots on YouTube of the fraud. They listed millions of fake auctions with NARUd user IDs and zero feedback user Ids.
Ummm....something ain't quite right on eBay. Check out this seller - has been on ebay 10 years with a feedback rating of only 558 - but he currently has 90,721 items listed! Something smells funny and it's not my sneakers.
The seller's 1-800 number belongs to an airline! Wonder how many other "sellers" have 100,000 items listed?
Here is a zero feedbacker with 10,000 listings. None of them had any bids:
New boycott scheduled for May 1 to coincide with the new improved feedback policy. I wonder if Ebay will list a bunch of bogus auctions again?
