They are now fully looking into this and said they will take action asap within the next 24hrs.


Brilliant. Nice work Richard! Fingers crossed my friend. :)

Ebay still haven't removed him yet, and he's just listed another item and is immediately shill bidding on it again with that same account.

If ebay don't do anything about him that's gonna be the biggest piss take!, i'll never message or report another scammer ever again it's just not worth my time & effort, if ebay don't give a shit then why should any of us bother! :?

There's been another ebay account iv'e spotted lately with zero feedback that's also been bidding a lot on this guy's listings, I suspected it was possibly him and I was bloody right, he's just started listing in it, so be aware people of this account not to bid on anything he lists as you'll be the victim of shill bidding...

No probs!

Well put it this way if ebay don't remove his other accounts that iv'e reported then i'm not gonna waste my time bothering any more. :(

From what iv'e already told ebay they should be seeing any other accounts he has linked anyway.

Iv'e seen him do that quite often, he probably changes his mind just in case he wins the auction himself, and then rebids with a lower bid.

Yeah bid retractions has been a feature for years now, a seller can also retract a bidders bid too if they don't want them bidding.

No probs, i'm always happy to warn collectors.

Thanks, sorry to see ebay have not done anything to stop him yet :( I wish there was a auction site like ebay where you could only sell vintage star wars and some good guys was in charge of the auction site, so they will kick guys out like him forever :D
