Default Something fun to look at.. Paypal boards

It's not that I just found this out, in fact I've known for a long time and I'm kind of surprised I never saw it mentioned here. Go to the "discussion boards" on eBay (you don't have to register to see them) and then go to the "Paypal" subforum. At least three of the users, "cliniclady2000", "sandypurins", and "texas_skeeter" are shills that are paid to post on those boards and say good things about Paypal. Also they are quick to harass anyone who dares say something bad about Paypal on that forum.

See, both eBay and Paypal hire contract workers from a company called Liveworld, who specializes in "building customer relationships through social networking and online community".

UH-HUH............. Basically they are in the business of Buzz Marketing, sending out paid shills posing as regular customers to promote the companies that are paying them.

Don't believe me? Go look for yourself.. they don't even make any effort to be discrete about it! Also these three members have been known to repeatedly break forum policies, but no matter how much people report them they never get suspended. I know it's not really important, but it's still pretty interesting that Paypal has to stoop so low and do this.

Yeah the Powerseller board for one, I think. For some reason Liveworld really focuses their efforts on the Paypal board more than any other one. The 3 paid shills I mention post almost exclusively there. They go so far as to stalk any seller (who should have been smart and used a posting ID anyway) that said something bad about Paypal.. and then they will spread a bunch of false accusations against that seller in retaliation. These guys are brutal!

Ur wrong Kola Wash. please dont post false info.........

This is a post from texas skeeter --who you said was a paid poster. He is asking us to boycott paypal. U should really get your info straight next time...

oradell (1192 ) View Listings | Report Jan-30-08 05:53 PST

Sellers on sellers board are calling for a boycot 18-25 Feb - no listing, no eBay fees, no PayPal fees.

texas_skeeter (157 ) View Listings | Report Jan-30-08 06:18 PST 1 of 14

Good idea, too bad their aren't more people stupid enough to think this will do anything whatsoever. I guess I can be happy that buyers will have half a dozen fewer sellers to ignore while they look for our auctions.

Please make the boycott permanent.

and how about "sandpruns'

sandypurins (242 ) View Listings | Report Jan-27-08 16:27 PST 11 of 130
"I'm out $25. Please tell me how using PayPal would have changed that?"

One word... Chargeback.

"this happened back when PayPal funded refunds out of a sellers account."

How long ago did this happen?


Now why would she be telling a buyer to do a credit card chargeback which will paypal will more then likely have to pay for.

Truthfully they are just keeping it real with them whiners and cry babies in the forum.. Crying about a scam because they didnt read the whole auction listing.

He means that all the "stupid" sellers who are not using Paypal should make their boycott permanent so that the buyers looking at "our auctions" (i.e. those who take Paypal) don't have to bother dealing with the boycotters. The post is there for everyone to see.. just look at it, and the other members here can judge just how "wrong" I am.

Well they are stupid. Well most of them. We even talk about the buyers in here about how dumb they are..

1 person in their complained because sje paid $300 for a whole sale list, she thought she was buying a 64 inch brand new big screen for $300..lol But in the auction it said in big letters" THIS AUCTION IS FOR A WHOLESALE LIST ONLY. PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU DONT AGREE"

No tell me, wouldn't you say that she was stupid??

Link to the OTHER one, obviously. The one with sandypurins. It's obvious you read things too quickly and jump to conclusions. I would stop talking now too if I were you.

Yeah, I used to surf the boards often and there was a huge discussion on these outsource live world posters

There are a few of these going on and live world or eBay staff and posing as users to "control" and moniter behaviour on the boards

There are even studies and analysis on "customer control" on the boards. I guess when there is so many angst going on, they have to stoop low to perform damage control
