Vehicle Scam Topics Overwhelming eBay Motors Community Forum

vehicle scam topics ebay community

Apparently motor-vehicle scam topics are overwhelming eBay Motors community forum. There’s not much motor-head chatter or questions about cars and car parts etc that would normally be found in an automotive forum. Management must be trying to limit the car scam questions by pinning this post to the top. Gone are the days when this forum was great! 🙄 The eBay Motors community forum over a decade ago was the best anywhere online to get any kind of car related advice. Motors was a vibrant community where regulars like myself…

As eBay Marketplace Rots Execs Dump StubHub Raising Needed Cash

ebay marketplace rots

As eBay Marketplace Rots execs this week dumped StubHub generating much needed cash. It’s absolutely mind blowing that corporate execs totally wrecked this once top brand name. Used merchandise was once eBay’s niche market that nobody could compete with. Execs threw it all away chasing Amazon’s tail. As long as I’ve been watching eBay’s marketplace rot away, it’s doubtful it can ever be revived. 😥 eBay said Monday it has reached a deal to sell event-ticketing business StubHub to ticket reseller Viagogo for $4.05 billion. The Geneva-based Viagogo said the…

Yet Another eBay Cellphone Seller Scammed By Bad Buyer

cellphone seller ripped off

We’ve seen it before, eBay seller lists an expensive item, buyer claims it’s broken and PayPal issues a refund, seller receives some worthless junk item. This is corporate greed profiting from bad buyers. Keeping the sellers FVF and tacking on another 4% penalty! From the shipping and returns forum: I feel totally betrayed! I listed and sold an iPhone XS Max and the buyer said he received an 6+ and not the phone I had advertised so he requested a return. I replied that he was mistaken and that there…

eBay Corporate HQ Draper

Whatever happened to the good old days when eBay was a trusted household brand name? Trust and community values were eBay Inc cornerstone. Today the once wunderkind of cyberspace plods ahead desperately trying to find it’s way. Gary Alexander of Seeking Alpha published this article on 04/25/2019 laying eBay as an investment out in detail line by line and paragraph by paragraph.

Brian Burke Hubcap Joe eBay Meetup

For 6 years this eBay top rated seller Hubcap Joe is suspected of running a racketeering cyber-terror ring.

Why Are eBay Stores Redirecting To Home Page

Smartphone eCommerce

When browsing a webpage on my smartphone then clicking a link to view a sellers eBay store i was redirected to the home page. I’m wondering why this happened? The same link clicked on a desktop pc went to the store like it should. Are eBay stores not mobile friendly like the feedback profiles i blogged about? Why does ebay.com have so many site errors? Just like these two subdomains were left unlinked. It’s bad enough to leave oodles of backlinks ignored that when clicked return site dns errors. What…

Non Responsive eBay Site Pages Obsolete Hurt Sales

Non Mobile Compatible eBay Page

Recently when reading a blog post on my smartphone, I clicked to view a sellers eBay feedback and was shocked the page was not mobile friendly. The feedback page was nearly impossible to read unless flipping my phone sideways. Considering today’s shoppers who do most of their everyday tasks via their smartphones this is another big eBay goof. Like those un-linked sub-domains I blogged about last year. It was often said back in eBay’s earlier days when Meg Whitman was the ceo, the venues code was held together with bailing…

Whatever Happened To Cappnonymous eBay Critic Blogger

Cappnonymous LOL Graphic

Cappnonymous was probably the best eBay critic blogger since 2006, but hasn’t been heard from since around 2014. He had a way of impaling John Donahoe and others with very damaging blog posts and videos. His YouTube channel was chock full with damaging eBay dirty laundry, but now is gone! 😥 This post is dedicated to Cappnonymous who regularly revealed eBay ‘code oops moments’ as hackers (Vladuz and others) phished site shoppers with alarming hacks and cracks. He was especially good at screen-capturing the methods hackers used to breach eBay…
