How to Block Bidders:
Quick link how to block unwanted bidders/buyers:
If you open an un-paid item dispute for an item and the buyer still refuses / doesnt pay, after you have issued an un-paid item strike to the buyer you have the option of blocking them straight away - I would recomend doing this otherwise you may have the same trouble again. Unfortunately even though they have received an unpaid item strike they can still leave feedback and even more unfortunate some choose to lie and leave negative feedback. This is out of the sellers control and should follow up on the feedback appropriately so other people can see. Ebay should ideally disable buyers leaving feedback for an item that they have received an unpaid item strike on!
Its hard to spot them but you can try. If you bid on an item and get out bid in small increments it could be an indication of shill bidding as they are driving the price up but dont want to outbid you. If you click on the other bidders name you can see their bid activity with the seller - if it is 100% it is most certainly a shill bidder and should be reported (as its very rare that only one person buys from just one seller).
