eBay is an equal opportunity fraudster

It’s nigh impossible to keep a track of all the deviousness and unscrupulousness, or, indeed, the criminal activity, of eBay Inc.; their unprincipled activities are so pervasive; one can only generalize and describe eBay as an equal opportunity fraudster: they will directly defraud, or will directly and indirectly aid and abet others to defraud, whoever they can, whenever they can. eBay is probably the most unscrupulous commercial entity on the planet; eBay is—demonstrably—the greatest knowing and calculated facilitator of the most massive, endemic, auction fraud on consumers that the world is ever likely to know and, doubtless, there will be a trickle down effect of like criminal activity to their other operations. Anyone that contracts to do business with eBay does so at their peril …

eBay's fundamental fraud on its consumers

The fundamental fraud on consumers by eBay is eBay's demonstrably false claim to have “sophisticated and proactive” systems in place to control shill bidding fraud. Clearly, eBay has no such systems in place, and such a claim is therefore a "false representation for the purpose of making a gain” and that is effectively a criminal fraud on eBay users, a deliberate and outrageous deception on eBay’s great many trusting users, leading those users to believe that the warm woolly coats on their backs are safe when, in fact, eBay is leading them into the shearing shed where eBay’s wolves are laying in wait. Indeed, eBay has been tacitly aiding and abetting, and effectively encouraging such criminal activity since the year dot, and particularly so since Johnny Ho introduced additional anonymity for bidding IDs in 2008, for no other reason than to further obscure shill bidding fraud from which eBay profits handsomely, for example … http://bit.ly/11F2eas

Johnny Ho and eBay:“Westfield Ho”…

In their justified complaints about the way eBay is treating them, many eBay merchants overlook the most material point: ultimately, eBay does not want them as sellers on its marketplace. It has been clearly stated that Johnny Ho’s dream is to turn eBay into the online “Westfield Mall” for the “leading retailers, brands and manufacturers of the world”. Realistically, that is unlikely to include the great majority of merchants presently selling on eBay.

Further, these sellers are wrong in thinking that, just because they pay fees to eBay, they are eBay’s “true customer”: eBay now is principally—and desperately—interested only in retaining the goodwill of buyers because it is by the numbers and goodwill of those buyer that the Ho hopes (in his dreams) to attract and retain his “preferred” merchants …

Whether sellers like it or not, that is Johnny Ho’s stated plan; whether he can succeed in his dream, with the ever worsening reputations that both eBay and “PreyPal” are developing, is doubtful; will he destroy the eBay marketplace as we know it along the way? Probably. But, such destruction is of no concern for the Ho and his gaggle of feathered friends with whom he runs around in circles all day in the eBay executive suite: they have all well provisioned their lifeboats for the possibility of a foundering. The real question is, are all the small–medium sized merchants that are still trying to sell on eBay yet making their plans for the post-foundering time, and are they now wearing their lifejackets 24/7?

I doubt even Carl Icahn can save eBay now and he probably would not change much anyway, but, regardless, it’s fun watching Icahn make Johnny Ho squirm in the meantime …

Regardless, it’s nigh on impossible to keep a track of all the deceptiveness, deviousness and unscrupulousness, or indeed, the criminal activity, of eBay Inc.; their amoral activities are so pervasive; one can only generalize and describe eBay as an equal opportunity fraudster: they will directly defraud, or will directly and indirectly aid and abet others to defraud, whoever they can, whenever they can, as long as they profit from such fraud. Indeed, eBay is demonstrably probably the most unscrupulous commercial entity on the planet; anyone that contracts to do business with eBay does so at their peril … http://bit.ly/11F2eas

“How to complain about PayPal in the UK”

And along the way, another (currently) 410 negative comments on “PreyPal”—well worth a read for any small merchant using “PreyPal” to accept payments and who has not as yet had a problem with “PreyPal” because, when you eventually do have that problem, it could well be a serious business-threatening problem …

PS: I have no particular axe to grind with eBay/PayPal; I am not an eBay merchant; I am predominantly a buyer of stuff; nevertheless, I do recognise eBay for being, demonstrably, probably the most unscrupulous commercial entity on the planet … http://bit.ly/11F2eas
