rip-off ebay seller [japanrarehunter]

Recommended Posts

Really sad how ebay doesn't do anything and allows private users.

 

 

Just one question:

 

I never was a seller, so when people are bidding on your items, can you see what is the value of your higher bid ?

No... You'll only see what the bid is at. The high bidder could have a high bid of $20, but current bid may be at $5 and that's all the seller will see. If a seller could see people's max bids, it would be much easier for them to have shill bidders to go right up under the max of another bidder without going over. Now it's a guessing game. It's also easier to bust if I notice that I'm the high bidder, get outbid by a newbie, and then they cancel right away and end up being under my bid again...

but non-zero feedback number does not guarantee that he is not fake bidder.

assume that one buyer won 1 item each every week (total 4 items in any month) from same seller.

if the seller leave positive feedback to him for all items, the buyer's feedback number will be 4.

ebay's new policy for feedback allow that. so any fake bidder for shill-bids could get almost 50 feedback number in a year

if the fake bidder win at least one item every week and the seller leave positive feedback for all items.

and moreover if the fake bidder hide his feedback (as like mr.kim78), we could not know who left feedback to him.

 

feedback number for buyer could guarantee nothing for his reliability as buyer. you know seller also could not leave

negativie feedback to his buyer.

i thought he have heard about this topic and stopped shill-bids (or just temporarily).

but he just started to do shill-bids again.

 

just LOOK mr.kim78 (his another account for shill-bids)'s bid history :

this is just the list he WON from his own items.

followings are some examples mr.kim78 is second high bidder : (m***m ( private ) is mr.kim78 without doubt)

The thing is he's got a bad rap from the collectors who have purchased from him so all of his stuff isn't going for shit. I got my MAD MAX - Night Of Passion FEMS pressing from him real cheap. He's fucked himself.

Wow, so he outbid himself on everythign now and then just sends second-chance offers around?

 

eBay will never do anything to such seller - they LOVE the fees his shill-bidding generates...

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...s_None_ViewLink

 

he bid on his own "109" items. (he sold about 300 items last time, so it means he bid on 1/3 of his own items)

 

and he WON 40 items out of them :

And ebay doesn't want to intervene as he is a good 'client' of them?

this rip-off seller has other account for buying, that is kisstherecords

 

http://cgi6.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?View...ted=1&all=1

 

he won SKAGARACK CD for $810.

but when i looked the bidding history, it seems the second high bidder ".***s( 8 )" is not serious bidder.

i guess the second high bidder is fake account for shill bidding or he just bid on the item to fuck kisstherecords off.

 

anyway that is good present for this rip-off seller :christmas:

I was the second highest bidder in that auction, and I was really serious about getting that CD! Didn't know about the shill bidders until reading this post. Good thing that he ended up with damn thing himself, I just got caught up in spirit of bidding. Actually I already have the CD with autographs from Skagarack, but mine is without the OBI strib, and there's nothing I want more to complete it with the OBI :-)
