The hackers used us for a short time but we pretty much developed a system within a few days that's stopped them from using us, but hasn't inconvienced our users. For a few days there were creating 200+ accounts a day here, and listing 10,000+ items a day. All 1 day auctions. Ripping off hundreds or thousands of buyers a day before eBay ends the listing. I figure they were making $10k a day or more. Just some school kinds in internet cafes in China probably. They're not going to stop.
Really eBay needs to be the one to stop this. I knew as soon as we stopped them they'd just move to another 3rd party lister.
I staunchly refuse to sell to China/Japan. They hit me for majorly hard last year and it took three months to get completely away from them.
Dayum! 200 accounts a day and listing 10,000+ items a day.
I'm telling ya Jeff...last year this time my account got hit and HARD by fraudulent purchases by eBay china users. <spit>
Why eBay allows China..I just don't know. Nor do I understand why they can't tighten their guidelines?
PLUS there's the fact that they're FREAKING FREE to sell on there? And do we honest customers in the US pay? Dayum Skippy!
