Notice the dates of the auctions, they were all the same time. Everyone from this round of scamming had already paid before the neg feedback hit. I doubt its a hijack, that would be a pretty cut and dry situation with ebay and the account closed and such. Sounds to me like either its an account set up and run legitamtly for a year or two to build positive rep, then the big payoff scam is launched. Do the math, 100-400 people at $300 each, thats some cash.

So what did he do, start 400 auctions at once? The neg. feedback is spread out over 3-4 days.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Ebay Scammer Extraordinaire

Yep... Started a bunch of acutions, insisted on cash (check or money order, no paypap) and then him and his wife split the country. Take an objective look... There weren't many warning signs. The no PayPal thing in itself isn't a huge warning sign. They rape you on fees, and are very consumer friendly (to the point of screwing sellers). All the pictures showed the actual merchandise and had the sellers name in the pic. Perfect feedback prior to that. The number of consecutive auctions should have been a warning sign, but how many people check that before bidding?
