One vote here, obviously.

I'm concerned that jonb7839 and the_game_emporium are one and the same due to their auction listing style. the_game_emporium left a lot of unhappy people in their wake. Can you check this out?

Thanks.

Provided eBay get thier cut of the profits, I see no reason why they should prevent a company like Eastern Treasure Chest for ripping everyone off. The seller makes a couple of thousand dollars and eBay get their cut. That's cool.

What incentive do eBay have to prevent any form of fraud? They are being payed to turn a blind eye?

They make millions of dollars a year from this type of business and the suckers who fall for it. It's all part of the eBay learning process, and its the nature of the business.



Or look at it another way. With a very small anount of stock, and some fairly rare desirables, you could run a business that nets you $3-5K a year with little or no outlay at all. If you run a similar scam with Signed Photos and one with CDs you could turn over a tidy profit by doing practically nothing. If you get your brother, sister, and wife doing it (probably one and the same redneck) you could have a family scam turning over $50K a year for doing f*ck all. Now that is good business sense.

Nobody here knows a lawyer?

I am not american and not a lawyer, and know practically nothing about usa law, but I speculate that, by answering in such a way, e-bay could be judged as an accomplice of the ex ETC if someone would file a suit and take the case in court.

Just gently answer to Arwen that you're going to report the fact - and our suspicions - to the justice and see what happens...

Why not?

Seems like this ETC guy is screwing people with the help (or blank cooperation) of ebay.

How many have fallen in this kind of trap?

I generally think twice or thrice before raising accusations, but in this case... maybe I'll let the long arm of justice find out who's behind this.

Just contact the people who have been ripped off by this guy, and feed them the facts. I think their lawyers will have something to say about this.
