    basically guys,
    i used to sell tons and tons on eGay..

    mainly mobile phones,

    however i moved onto selling t-shirts

    it was a highly competitive market.

    and ive never witnessed anything like it.

    all the other ebay sellers started emailing me left right and centre; with death threats, threats of reporting me to ebay, undercutting, etc etc

    there was one guy in particular who sold similar shirts like me.

    he was not particularly nice to me, although i responded with polite and courteous responses, he was very nasty threatened to undercut/report me to ebay.

    low and behold the next day everysingle one of my auctions got taken off for keyword spamming

    so i relisted,

    taken down again due to fee avoidance (cause i let buyers choose any size when buying a shirt)

    this guy kept reporting me.

    so i thought f*ck it and reported him, what happens?

    i get my account suspended from eGay!! WTF

    then i check his auctions, he keyword spams, he breaks the fee avoidance policy, etc he was at the time below 98% and was still maintaining a powerseller badge. he breaks every eGay rule i got shut down for.

    So i thought, maybe just my account..
    i have several accounts on eGay... and so decided to try report him... what happens?


    my other accounts get SUSPENDED WTF:yield:

    this is redicolous, i managed to get my main account open again by sending a driving license and bank statement to reinstate it.

    however this guy has never had any listings taken down!!?!?

    now, ive stopped selling shirts...

    i just do the odd phone,

    what happens now?

    the phone i listed a few days ago gets taken down! for keyword spamming!!

    all because that idiot, had reported me... and they are probably keeping tabs on me.

    also theyve put a limit of how much i can list cause of this guy..

    is there any way to get this way back,
    i know powersellers have a hotline they can ring.. but it seems like this guy has an inside man or something, i had 4 accounts shut down and only managed to re-open one.

    everytime i complained about him, that account got shut down OR they would find something wrong with the auction and cancel them..

    i dont get why they dont touch any of his auctions???

    any one know or had a similar situation?
    also will eGay keep tracking my account now

    help guys

    thanks

    You should outsource a bunch of people to report his auctions and file a bunch of chargebacks.

    Theres plenty of ways- one of the best tactics is to open a new egay account in his name- you can get his details by buying an item from him ( may as well leave neg fb while you are at it) then you are allowed to get his name adddress and phone number through requesting contact details of the seller that you done a transaction with.

    Now use a new ip or proxy to open a brand new account using all his details- (his name address telephone number etc )
    then sell a heap of knockoffs etc get that account suspended before you get it suspedned make sure you use a third new account to buy somethign from this dodgy account in his name and then open up a dispute for item not recieved

    when your account in his name gets suspended then use the third account to report him to trust and safety saying that you think he is the same account as
    a.the wanker your fucking
    b.the account you registererd with all his detials

    then tell them that he ripped you off as well and he has multiple accounts


    should be no more account for him as ebay shouldnt let him have multiple accounts after being suspended

    or of course you could just open multiple accounts and neg the fuck out of him too that will hurt him just make sure you dont get those accounts suspended Ie only open those accounts for that purpose only or when they get suspended the negs wont count

    lol u guys are great! before i give up his name... does anyone know if your auctions will get taken off for keyword spamming if they do random searches, or if SOMEONE has to report u..

    im just thinking, if we all mess this guy up, he will pretty much know it was me who was retaliating....

    I had some problems a while back when ebay allowed virtual items. Basically they place a filter on your account that will automatically cancel your auctions if you post a listing similar to the ones they took down. The best thing to do is call ebay and ask them about the filter on your account. They won't volunteer the information and you may have to talk to more than one person about it to get it removed. Also, if you have copies of the emails he sent you, talk to someone on the phone about it. Even better, file a complaint with the BBB against ebay because they are allowing this to happen. Companies always seem to respond to the BBB for some reason.
