eBay U.K. has been hit with a Virus known as jiimmey-nomates

Posted on June 8, 2008. Filed under: eBay | Tags: , , , |

Yesterday, a buyer in the U.K. went on a rampage and left 106 neutrals and negatives for sellers.  One seller received more than 40 of these ratings alone.  Keep in mind that the buyer never received the items he purchased because he never paid for any of them.  Some of the negatives were left the very day the items were purchased and some were left 7 days after purchase since Powersellers cannot be left neutral or negative feedback for 7 days after the date of purchase.

The seller, chrisuk1958, took the brunt of the attack.  Below is just a sample of some of the items that the buyer, jiimmey-nomates, purchased from Chris and the feedback he then left:

Black Wind (330120240720)
negative: it was not in color
Garden and Field Birds: Eggs and Nests (330121010805)
negative: the garden was full of weeds
Betty Burton: The Face of Eve (330110120716)
negative: ugly picture on the cover
Hitler: A Pictorial Bibliography (330100062932)
negative: nice book about a nice man but the seller was not a nice person
Doomsday (330165619522)
negative: the end was missing
Illustrated Road Book of Scotland 1965 (330156236155)
negative: out of date
Making Soft Toys (330165612576)
negative: you could hurt yourself with his book
A History of the World’s High Performance Cars (330110089702)
negative: my car was not in it
England Myths and Legend (330175841206)
negative: it was full of untruths
Dog Breeds and Dog Care (370021592215)
negative: not enough about rabbits
When I asked Chris what he thinks about the situation, he said “It’s an ebay situation that can only escalate like a virus when the spoilers get the idea from his misuse.” 


(note that if you are reading this blog in the future, my hope is that you won’t be able to view the auctions directly that show the negative feedback as one would realistically believe that eBay would intervene and remove these negative feedbacks…… eventually)

For once, eBay has moved on something and NARUed the bidder. Of course he probably already has a nice new ID. Negatives have been removed from the seller but the big question would be, did he get a refund on his fees?

The question is, when these incidents happen, and they aren’t publicized like this one was, do they receive the same attention and action?
