Yea, that might help you not "Waste" the listing so to speak but it does nothing to keep those Dogs Off the listing in the first place, Which is what really needs to be done, if for no other reason just to keep the "EYES" off the account. Besides in my Experience not to many people actually take advantage of Second chance offers. (about 20%, for me)

I`ve been getting these they bought my listing in 1 sec and request payment total and send me a spoof e-mail too ship to Africa for a friend and the e-mail says:

Payment Received With PayPal

PayPal makes it easy to receive money. For security purposes, Payment has been deducted from buyer's account and has been APPROVED. However, payment will remain pending until shipment tracking number is sent to our customer service department for verification before money is remitted into your account.

Shipment tracking number should be email to our customer service: servicesecurecenter@mail2pal.com

I would just monitor my auctions and cancel and block every single 0 feedback bidder.

the problem is that you carn't block bidders with 0 feedback unless you know something I don't. If you do know how to do this please let us know.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions so far. The problem with stopping zero feedback bidders is that they are using a SNIPER service and their bidds are arriving 5-10 seconds before an item finishes!

I'm not sure if that rule that you can't block 0 feedback bidders anymore is new.
If so, then I would just list the item with Buy it now or best offer to avoid any hassles.

I have just tried what you are all saying and giving advise, No joy they seem to be there every step of the way. Its the snip bidding that is another problem, Thanks for all your help but i am at a total loss as to what to do now what with Ebay susending every thing they can and if you can get passed them you have these idiots waiting at the end. I havn't sold anything in months because of them and need to do someting fast. If you all want a list of there user names so far let me know and i will post it if i am allowed.
Any other ideas would be great as now I am getting desperate.

they cannot have unlimited ebay accounts to use, collect them all and report to ebay...the evidence is there that they are not paying, take it high, and state that if they do not act you will report to the financial ombudsman....ebay is probably a member of a Spanish one, in order to trade there..

what kind of goods are you selling? It has to be a competitor - are they high priced or very exclusive? Who else is selling them, can you narrow down competitor?

Hi oompalumpa, the goods are generally fashion accessories and sporting goods within the price range €100 to €300. I can survive the VERO people (ie. powersellers!) They are an occupational hazard. It's this sniping I cannot get around at the moment.
Thanks to everyone for the input!

Another way to tell if your auction bidders are f ake buyers is to check the items they've been bidding on within the past 30 days.
It's under Advanced search>under Items > By bidder then enter bidder's user ID check the box "include completed listings (last 30 days)" and choose results per page 200. If they have bidded or won too many items(usually more than the feedback they have) it's obvious that they are f ake.

I guess it doesn't work with international bidders or something.
Try it with someone else.
Unless you don't have that feature available since your international

OK let me tell you what it is,,:

Theres a overseas organization that you can hire to destroy your competitor on Ebay for a low rate.....I used them before

Also since when did Ebay stoop allowing you to block 0 feedback bidders. Last time i blacked 0 feedbackers was like 9 months ago..

I think you still can block 0 feedbackers, dontknow why they would change it..

WOW that is intresting to know.I don't know when they stopped you with the 0 feedback but it is there.
It seems that when ever i try to stop these from bidding ie bloking any user with out paypal the next day i get a MC081 Susended.
I just don't know what to do at the moment as i havn't sold a thing in 3 months and this has been my income for 6 years. I have got over a lot of the problems with the help of you guys on this forum but I am not getting over this one and don't know what to do next.
I think who ever these people are if they carn't bid they are repoting to ebay and then the dreded MC081 which means you are f****d
Any help out there as to what to do next would be good.
There doesn't seem to be any other sites where you can sell. Ebay has the monopoly on it all.
HELP PLEASE

I had another one the other day, HK account zero FB, its definitely the chinks doing it and always on electronics, i sell clothing & accessories from China as well on other accounts and i never get it on those accounts. its a shame really as im slowly getting out of the clothing business and moving more into the electronics business.

Anyway apparently ebay are planning to fix it this year but until then we will just have to be dirty and set up accounts in the same details as there's and get them suspended so the feedback disappears.

Heres a link for the feedback changes below.

You can block anyone you want if you add it to the blocked bidder list... you can also block people with 3, 2, or 1 feedback.

there isn't a way to block bidders with 0 1 2 3 feedback. And it seems that if you can stop these bidders then within a few days of the auctions ending I get a MC081. This is a really bid problem at the moment as i just carn't sell anything.
really don't know how to hid from them.
Any body got any more ideas PLEASE
