Dorothy Thorpe China Listings Pulled with Listing Restrictions

Dorothy Thorpe China

Dorothy Thorpe China Listings are getting pulled by eBay Inc with Listing Restrictions placed on sellers. Why is eBay going after Vintage items? Apparently keywords in the Vintage categories trigger policy violations on unsuspecting small sellers. This is nothing new, this has been going on at eBay for years. The VeRO (Verified Rights Owner) program at eBay also makes it possible for sellers to file false take down claims in order to move sellers out of the way. In this situation the seller wrote a complaint on eBay forums and stated that the company isn’t even on the VeRO list. eBay makes it hard for sellers to sell an average everyday item because of their automated listing bots that automatically go out and search for keywords in a listing to violate that listing and remove it. One seller listed Dorothy Thorpe China on eBay, the vintage items clearly marked and photos showed the manufacturer’s labels. The item listed was from the mid-century era and claims the manufacturer is no longer in business. Why is eBay going after vintage items? It may be because Vintage items bring eBay Inc high final value fees from selective high volume top rated sellers. Competition is fierce in this category and only the anointed are allowed to push their goods.

When it comes to selling on eBay marketplaces, online sellers walk a thin tightrope not knowing what will happen to their account from one day to the next. This is what happens when a corporation allows “bots” and algorithms to do the job that real human beings should be doing, and we all know far too well the disastrous results.

The only way to fight fire with fire when it comes to VeRO take down complaints is to do what your top rated sellers do to you by filing a VeRO take down claim on your competition. Here is a video showing how by eBayisajoke:

eBay Passwords Sold By Hacktivists Using Bitcoin

When the eBay Inc announcement hit of a massive data breach a seller has turned up on the website Pastebin (a notorious site used for posting anonymously that is often used by hacktivists dumping data from hacks) offering a full copy of eBay passwords for sale using Bitcoin and selling the data for only $770 requesting money to his personal address. The seller has posted a sample of the database with 12,663 users from the APAC region including password hashes, e-mail addresses and postal addresses and is requesting payment by Bitcoin. This has naturally inspired a flurry of media coverage in the last few hours as your information appears to be on sale right now. Where is John Donahoe?

Let’s take a look at the advert posted by the seller and dissect what we can.

eBay Passwords up for sale using Bitcoin

The seller is requesting 1.453 Bitcoins which at present rates is about $770. He requests that you send the money to his address along with the transaction ID to a hushmail account (which provides privacy and makes the e-mail rather hard to track). This seems like a relatively low price for ebay passwords, but then anyone buying the list would have to do rather a lot of password cracking to reveal the passwords. The seller e-mail and login ‘[email protected]’ appears to have been created for the purpose of this post as Pastebin shows us no other posts (or broader refences) directly linked to this login online. Of course, what is interesting here is that the attacker has created one address for everyone to pay and hasn’t used Bitcoin ‘properly’ if he wants to privately transact with lots of individuals. That means we can go to a site and look at the Blockchain (put another way the list of people who have paid this supposed seller!)

Childrens Hospital of Michigan Auction Shut Down By Ebay

Childrens Hospital

A hat was listed on eBay by Critic Ebayisajoke to raise money for the Childrens Hospital of Michigan. The hat appeared on a Fox 2 News Detroit Hall of Shame segment back in 2013 when a reporter accused the critic of being a troll, exposing the identity and assassinating the character of an innocent Michigan Man using Team Ebay Smear Campaign. The report showed no illegal activity and the reporter admitted at the end of the segment that the critic was not guilty of anything but being a troll. Sources say Fox 2 news may be sued by the Michigan man for character assignation and defamation. When the reporter Rob Wolchek approached the man to ask questions about being a troll in a movie theater parking lot, the critic ignored the reporter, got in his vehicle and drove away laughing. The reporter claimed that the hat the critic was wearing identified the man as being the person he was looking for. Because of the hat being so popular the eBay critic decided to put the hat up for auction on eBay and donate all the money to the Children’s Hospital of Michigan but the auction was shut down by eBay within hours of posting it.

Ebayisajoke has been a long time critic of eBay and he says that eBay shuts down item listings through the use of a search bot and innocent people suffer because of it, in this case the Childrens Hospital. “The government must step in and do something about eBay Inc” Ebayisajoke says. He also says there is no use in calling customer service because they are located outside the United States and simply admit to the customer that they are unable to help you. It’s a shame that a charity like this has to suffer at the hands of a corrupt evil business that does nothing but abuse it’s consumers which are the sellers that pay the fees to the shareholders.

Ebayisajoke says that he will auction off the hat on a better venue called and that the shareholders of eBay should hold a vote to terminate everyone at the top of this company including CEO John Donahoe. “The shareholders are losing their money because of bots”, Ebayisajoke says. Ebayisajoke blames Ebay Inc for hurting the Childrens Hospital of Michigan and he’s requesting that CEO John Donahoe make a $1000 donation to them in his name.
