I HAVE JUST BEEN READING  'TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE'  ITEM.

THIS HAS HIT A 'VERY RAW NERVE' WITH ME.

I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER SINCE MARCH 2002. AND HAVE 2,977 POSITIVE FEEDBACKS & GROWING - I HAVE BOUGHT AND SOLD ITEMS WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS.

TO MY ABSOLUTE HORROR NOVEMBER, 2005 -  I COULD'NT GET ON MY LISTING PAGE,   ( I HAD CHRISTMAS ITEMS READY TO LIST. )  

THE ONLY WAY FOR ME TO SEE WHAT WAS HAPPENING WAS TO GO THROUGH A RELATIVE'S SITE. WHEN I WAS ABLE TO DO SO - SOME MORON HAD LISTED 5 ITEMS IN MY USER NAME, CHANGED MY PASSWORD, ETC.

THE 5 ITEMS TOTAL STARTING PRICE £4,450. (I'D HAD 95 EMAILS ABOUT THESE SO CALLED ' ITEMS ')

NOT ONLY THAT I WAS 'A' NO LONGER A REGISTERED USER' BECAUSE  - I HAD BID ON MY OWN LISTING (YES I KNOW, 'FOOL' YOU MIGHT SAY) I ONLY DID THIS TO FIND OUT WHERE THE 'MORON' WAS BASED AND TO GET THEIR 'EMAIL ADDRESS', TO HELP EBAY SORT IT OUT. (AS THIS HAD NEVER HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE) I WAS HORRIFIED TO SAY THE LEAST.

AFTER I HAD EXPLAINED IN A LONG EMAIL TO EBAY - WHY I HAD BID ON MY OWN LISTINGS - IT TOOK 7 WEEKS (CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR HAD BEEN & GONE) FOR IT TO BE SORTED OUT AND FOR ME TO BE RE-ENSTATED BY EBAY, (THANK YOU)   

I'D NOT GAINED ANYTHING BY DOING SO - (I ONLY DID IT TO GET THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS) I WAS ONLY TO BE 'BARED' FROM THE SITE FOR THIS ACTION (THE ITEM STARTED AT 75p AND ENDED AT 75p) SO I DIDN'T GAIN ANYTHING FROM THAT.

(YES, I KNOW THAT I SHOULD'NT HAVE DONE IT - BUT I WAS SO MAD ABOUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED - COMMON SENSE AT THE TIME GOES OUT THE WINDOW OR DOWN THE TOILET)

THAT IS NOT ALL - IT HAPPENED AGAIN NOT SO LONG AFTER (HAS SOMEONE GOT IN FOR ME?????) 

IT HAPPENED ON A 5p LISTING DAY.

THIS TIME 32 'CHEAP' ITEMS - STARTING PRICE 99p & LISTED FOR 1 DAY ONLY - I'VE NEVER LISTED ANY ITEM FOR ONE DAY ONLY - MINE ARE ALWAYS FOR 10 DAYS - TO GIVE PEOPLE A CHANCE TO VIEW ALL MY LISTINGS.

THE ITEMS WERE - LAPTOPS, DVD SUROUND SOUND, ETC, WITH FREE POSTING/PACKING TO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD???????.

(A VERY GOOD " TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE " ITEMS) WERE AGAIN LISTED ON MY PAGE.

I HAVE NEVER SOLD ANY ELECTICAL ITEMS ON EBAY.

I TRYED TO GET INTOUCH WITH ALL THE EMAILS, - I COULD ONLY DO SO MANY EACH DAY (EBAY'S POLICY)

(I'D HAD PEOPLE ASKING IF THEY COULD COME AND PICK THE ITEM UP, PAY BY MASTERCARD, CREDIT CARD ETC)

I'D AGAIN HAD 85 EMAILS ABOUT THESE SO CALLED' CHEAP ITEMS ' AND 2 PEOPLE HAD BID ON THE ' LISTINGS '. ????

THIS TIME (I DIDN'T BID - ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY) ON ANY OF THE LISTING.

 I JUST REPORTED IT TO EBAY. I LEFT IT UPTO THEM TO SORT IT OUT.

THIS IS A WARNING TO ANYONE WHO COMES ACROSS ANYTHING LIKE THIS ON THEIR PAGE (DONT DO WHAT I DID - AND BID ON YOUR OWN ITEM - YOU'LL ONLY REGRET IT - LIKE I DID) JUST  "REPORT  IT  TO  EBAY".

KEEP CHANGING YOUR PASSWORD - LIKE EBAY SAYS.

REPORT ANY FRAUD LISTINGS / ALL 'EBAY' SPAM EMAILS - IF THERE NOT IN YOUR MESSAGE BOX - THERE PROBABLY NOT FROM EBAY - DONT LET THEM SIT IN YOUR EMAIL INBOX.
