Anyone noticed anything weird when you have a watcher on all of one type of item within an hour of listing? SWIM once had this and the next morning all of their listings were removed for copyright issues.

I think this means THEY are flagging them.... Don't answer any questions if you recieve messages. they will ask exact measurements,close up pictures whatever.. just don't reply to those or say your items are in the warehouse and you can't get to them..

i would say be careful but dont worry too much ..

i remember though during last holiday season, i listed merchandise up there and they sold within 45 mins of me listing them, and i always thought it took at least a couple hours to show!
i say this to say that maybe your item has been seen by an actual potential buyer .. just give us an update if anything happens

I personally have had bids and/or BIN items receive bids and purchases within a hour of listing a 7 day auction or a 30 day BIN item.
So you really never know for sure.....

If they're getting removed then you have competition watching and reporting all your items.There are steps you can take to fix this.

SWIM doesnt see anyone else with this specific item. If it is and SWIM finds them they wont be in competition for long.

My best guess is that they're a competitor trying to copy/ruin your listings. Or just doing some background research.
