At least in my case, trying to call eBay is worse than calling
the bank! All you get is "press 4, press 6, press 2, please visit our
website". They won't take a report! I've filed my report (twice) and
I hope most of you have done likewise. But it appears ladybotany is going
to get away with her first bunch of scam auctions. Some have already ended
and others will end shortly. The auctions for Anthruium superbum will
exceed $150 each for 5 seeds!
Personally, I now have zero faith in eBay. It appears,
at least on the surface, they care more about the money they make off listings
and commissions plus their percentage of PayPal than they do about theft of
copyright materials and fraudulent offerings. Don't know about the rest of you,
but I made my report on Thursday and repeated it on Friday. So far, I've
not heard a single word. And I really don't expect to ever hear a

Actually the complaint phone number to Ebay is (866)515-3229.....
There is an email address too, but that rarely gets much in the way of
It is unfortunate that sellers insist on making quick cash at others
There are a great of great buyers on Ebay that I have come to know as
friends over the years and I hate to see them fall prey to a scam.
