Another item number 222705049957

This rack sold for $600 on Oct 25th from a seller liquidating her father in laws Mobil collection. As Loyd mentions, took the photo from their listing 253224226831 to use for theirs. How the Chinese listing has 8 watchers surprises me.....does anyone truly believe they could get this rack for $22.43, lol!

What you folks are getting photos; on the fakes you are watching?

Veedol_AL and I have been laughing about an Auction where the Chinese are attempting to sell an ultra rare 6' Tydol Hi-Test Gasoline vertical sign for $28.58 with FREE SHIPPING!!!! # 162731082647

I sent the Seller a question asking how it would be possible to sell such a sign with free shipping? Here is his reply:

How in the world can Epay allow this? Just another reason I don't go there anymore.

Thanks!

Vinny--Call ebay customer service since it was your listing. Their number used to be 866-540-3229
I reported the listing but a phone call from you will do a lot more good!

Ebay; is working on removing these "Chinese Scammers"... The problem is; that they are popping faster than they can be removed.

I know it is a "real pain in the a**"; to contact Ebay and file a complaint! The CS reps.; do not have any idea about what you are upset about and it is real easy to get frustrated. (I especially get frustrated)

But, if enough phone calls are made; that include actual Ebay auctions with the item number(s)... Items that can be compared with the "New Auctions"; this gives Ebay the power to pull these Auctions.... Ebay because of Lawsuits in CA... Now has to "walk a tightrope" whereas it comes to pulling a listing... Too many people contacted Ebay saying that listings were not legit... When they were and Ebay was sued.... But, if you can show the original Auction info (by the item number); with the item number of the new Auction.... You then give Ebay, tangible proof that a Seller can be "looked at and investigated"...

I have been on the phone for over 40 minutes; working with Ebay attempting to verify that at least some of Scammers are separated from legitimate Sellers.

As has been noted; if your listing has been hi-jacked or a listing where you won an item that is now listed; your best option is to contact Ebay Customer Service by phone. That way a report is compiled at the same time you are conversing with a Customer Service Rep. And then a Rep. from Ebay Security can make a notation for an investigation of the Seller....

I appreciate your passion and your time invested fellas.

I genuinely wonder if I should feel guilty that this stuff doesn't bother me anymore. I'm never on ebay anymore ... gave up on that place years ago. I don't buy nearly as much as I used to ... maybe that's it.

I guess I find it hard to have much sympathy for people indiscriminately plopping down their hard earned money for repops. I really think it bothers others more than it does them.

I'm not sure any of us can save the hobby from the tsunami of junk on the market. I've decided to just enjoy what I've collected and call it a day. Maybe I'm wrong.
