A nice win for Dave.  There was a Dark Tower in that nice mix.

Looks like some more people may be wising up to the Cougertard's tactics:

In other words, people are having the exact reaction you'd expect if somebody, for no reason whatsoever, makes mention of "and pay no attention to the people who will contact you lying about me". :lol:

There's a line between providing enough info to allay somebody's suspicions and providing too much and thereby making them suspicious.  I've always been of the opinion that Cougie's standard spiel takes one look at that line, scoffs, and jumps clear past it as far as it can. ;)

Do you think he's expecting a run of bad feedback? - a few penny auctions here - designed purely to massage the kitty's ego :lol:

This sort of crap shouldn't be allowed on ebay! It pisses me off to no end when I see it.. doesn't it cost more than 1cent to list an auction? Once again showing that ebays feedback system is crap and they don't really care about it... they should erase all of these sort of auctions and all of the feedback recieved and left...

If you are trying to decipher Coogies mad rambling postings, you will be left in the dark quite frequently! About 75% of his postings make no sense whatsoever? All the miss-spelling just compounds the situation!
:?
For example check the three postings below! They were all copied and pasted from Coogie-Retards e-mails to myself, check out the rambling, mad, wandering crazy content! And as for the diction... ("JEEZ").

I am a POWAH...SELLUR you are not!

"am this highly rated proffessional seller the laregst in the Uk for a reason,  i know what I am doing".  Coogie-Retard!

"you are a good reason why i block most new sellers, please do not be any more trouble, I see no reson for further contcat other than an apology, and payment, in 6 days i will process npb , strike, -FB,  and seek you as NRU" The Coogster!

Ah, the old digital item for sale trick.  Needless to say, anybody who does that (buying OR selling) in order to boost their feedback isn't somebody who's worth buying from.



It's technically allowed by eBay's rules, from what I recall, just so long as you don't explicitly state that the auction is for feedback.  (They got some bad press over auctions that were solely for feedback a few years back, from what I recall.)

At least with the feedback system now, you can see what someone has bought or sold.  For example:



http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI ... =asap247uk



99% of the 822 rating is from 1p auctions.

Not really:



http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/fee ... ation.html



With a key passage being:



"It is a violation to exchange feedback for the sole purpose of increasing your feedback score to obtain site privileges or enhance your reputation. This most frequently occurs when a person purchases low priced, non-physical items, but may include other types of transactions as well."



But ... we all know that the bigger issue is actually enforcement. I still think these sorts of listings are worth reporting, but I no longer really expect any action to be taken.

Hrm.  They must have updated that since I last checked. It was quite a while ago, so it's definitely likely.



At the time, I believe it only used to refer to mentioning feedback in the auction title or auction description.

Selling fake nintendo games by the looks of it.. and the comment that I have 500+ feedback a month is priceless.. I belive that you can only see what they have bought for the past 3 months, after that you only see the coments... What I want to know is doesn't it cost the seller $$ to post these "items" for sale? I suspect taht 1 cents don't change hands.. who in thier right mind ant to transfer 1 cent? and thats a slow way to make any sort of $$..

I doubt anything changes hands ... money or items. My guess is it's more of a network of scammers who "understand" that the whole thing is wink-wink, nudge-nudge, say-no-more.

Wow.  And we are missing out!  Let's set up our own system...NOT!  

I couldn't do it for ethical/moral reasons.  It's unethical even though technically it may be legal.  I am also of the belief that what goes around comes around.  It's not right, and these things have a way of coming back in unexpected ways.

I don't remember these penny auctions being mentioned in the same breath as Coug before.  Do you think Coug just learned this trick or have we just not noticed it?  I know we have commented on his feedback padding before, but not with penny auctions.  The Britty Kitty certainly can work the system to his advantage. :?


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

Hi,

yeah, he's done it on several occasions.

Whenever his feedback need a boost, basically.

Cheers,
