I was looking for a pair of studio monitors and came across an old con - a pair of BSS M250 monitors. I know from researching these in the past that they are nothing to do with either of the two famous BSS companies, one English, the other Swedish. I read the auction blurb and sure enough it was the same old "These cost a fortune" etc and so I tried to report it to eBay but they have an infuriating way of doing this where you have to choose from one list that then will bring up another list of options to choose from until, supposedly, it's defined. But it's not a comprehensive list and so I couldn't report it and make sense so I e-mailed them directly. (Why they don't have a box to enter the item number and a brief description why you're reporting it I don't know!?) Anyway, after a day they wrote and said:- "We'd like to ask you to resubmit your report via the eBay site. Please copy this link into a new browser window then select the reasons for your report. We realise that this process is time consuming and we appreciate your efforts." Report by the means I told them didn't work and they also made out that I hadn't given them the actual item details. Not true. So essentially they'd blanked my entire e-mail. I wrote back and said:- "Look, you've got the specifics so why don't you log on and do it? Why do I have to do your job for you? I'm trying to make this a safer environment for people to trade and you give me this cut 'n' paste crap about "appreciating" when the reality is you can't be bothered. They wrote back:- "We're not in a position to make judgements about whether they are authentic or not ... Although I'm sure you're extremely knowledgeable about these types of items, we can't remove items at the request of third parties whose credentials we can't verify. If you believe that the item in question breach the intellectual property rights of a third party ("rights owner"), I recommend that you notify the rights owner and encourage them to join our Verified Rights Owners (VeRO) Programme. Many rights owners are already members. Once we've verified them as a rights owner, they can request the removal of any listings that breach their intellectual property rights." So it stays. Unless one of the BSS companies gets them for copy infringement these con men can get way with it. I've had a couple of problems in the past with my listings where eBay have been so pedantic you can't believe and yet on a big con like this they fight the person reporting the con tooth and nail. Wankers. Has anyone else had problems when they tried to do the right thing? Were they any better with you?
