every week, the scammer will hack several ebay account, then on Friday afternoon list the very low price, then deleted them on Saturday, this week, the shop is:
https://www.ebay.com/str/follyhomeandfabric

if you try to contect them, the email is: sales@XXXXXXX.top, then it will give an ebay address for your payment, actually, an hide hyperlink link to the "ebay address", that will direct you to fake Ebay web site, THAT IS A FAKE EBAY ADDRESS! when you paid, just cry.

the scammer appear in ebay every Friday, they copied many shop's listing picture, also include my shop.

Kean:
People like me report these listings, and they get removed by ebay.  Soon afterwards the hacked shop gets cleaned up.  I doubt the scammer is the one deleting them.

When I see one of these come up in my searches, I report the listing for "Listing practices", "Avoiding eBay fees", "Offers outside of eBay" - or similar choices.

Runco990:
Oh yes, the "one dollar scammer" as I call him.  I also report him every time I see him.

I am honestly baffled that anyone falls for this!  Really????   :palm:

Kean:
I find it amazing that eBay have not bothered to set up an automated process to detect listing with contact details within images.
It is against their policies after all.

They even warn you about doing it in their mail system.
Maybe one or two decent software engineers could set up a program to scan images for obvious email addresses like this one. Though they just fired 1,000 people so unlikely it will happen any time soon.
