    I'll keep it short and sweet, i sell a lot on eBay and a competitor has been buying and getting others to buy from me for the sole purpose of leaving good feedback but with low stars, it's been going on for months and because there was no negative feedback i didn't click on until today. I can clearly make sense of it and see what's going on from running a few reports and checking postcodes etc. but eBay CS don't want to know. They say the stars are part of a buyers opinion so can't be removed, so does anyone know a way i can boost my stars back up? Not bothered how shady it is as long as it won't get me banned.

    well, do the opposite to what your competitor did.. get buddies or paid people purchase from you and leave max stars..

    Ditto - create a few new stealth accounts to buy from yourself to get it back up.

    Open multiple accounts and sell on them. Your competition will play dirty, might as well flood the market.

    Getting all your buddies to buy from you and leave a good rating should soon have you back up.

    Sell some cheap items with high demand to get quick transactions. If you are in need of 4,5 stars include a printed note to leave feedback if everything is good and if not to contact you directly without opening a case.
