    There are two sellers spamming duplicate listings on different accounts (7 accounts). I can tell they are from the same seller because they use the same picture and description. NOTHING is changed. I reported them for a few months and nothing happened. I tried calling ebay regrading this and i got some Filipino person who can barely speak english and has no idea why I called. Is EBAY turning a blind eye to this? Any recommendation other than doing exactly what they are doing?

    Personally I do this between my 3 or 4 real legit accounts. I don't spam, but I list the same item on 3 or 4 different accounts with the same description.

    I don't see why it would be a problem.

    Welcome to the blackhat portion of BHW! Oh wait....it's all blackhat. lol (although you have been a member since 2009 with only 20 posts - yikes!). When I was heavy into eGay I had roughly 20 accounts revolving at anyone time all selling the same product. The way I was doing it, it would have been impossible to stop since they were all different stealth/user information. Just beat them at their own game. Put more postings and offer the product for just a little less. Good luck.
