EBAY LOVES, PROFITS FROM, AND SUPPORTS CRIME WORLDWIDE:
 


PROVING ONCE AGAIN THAT EBAY LOVES, PROFITS FROM, AND SUPPORTS CRIME WORLDWIDE:

UK Librarian, Caught on eBay, Admits Major Book Thefts

In March, a bookseller contacted the City Council of Manchester, UK, with some startling information: books and manuscripts from the Central Library were being sold on eBay. Police traced the sales to a librarian, Norman Buckley, and recovered more than 400 items, including a 16th-century edition of the works of Geoffrey Chaucer. He had so far taken in £11,000 ($14,100) from the sales, but the total value of his theft was estimated at £250,000 ($470,000). After a disciplinary hearing, Buckley was fired. He then pleaded guilty to ten counts of theft. He faces up to six months in prison for each count. He will be sentenced on August 25.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Buckley told police that he had started to steal after breaking up with his long-term girlfriend. Council press officer Margaret Blackburn told LJ that the city began an immediate review of security, including increased restrictions on access to the rare books and manuscripts collections. "A review of the collections is to be undertaken and an additional secure area has been prepared for any items considered valuable which are currently housed on closed access stacks," she said. As part of the Manchester Central Library building restoration project, the introduction of RFID and the introduction of additional security gates will also enhance security.

Ebay loves and profits from counterfeit in Germany!

Buying at Auction and Saying Nothing
Imitation Perfumes on Ebay


Anyone buying at auction on ebay could, with a large probability, find that a forgery has fallen into their hands. This has been shown by a study by the Professor of Marketing at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz (Germany). For one month, individual auctions for particular perfumes were observed. Around 85% of the auctioned objects were forgeries, buyers receiving an original in merely 7% of cases..

About 250 auctions, at which a total of 256 products were on offer, were evaluated during the investigation. While the actual fragrance of the imitations often displayed only a minimal deviation from the original, the differences were clearly recognizable from other features. The weight of the bottle, the lettering used or the curvature in the bottom of the bottle pointed towards them being forgeries. For the buyers it admittedly appears not to be so important as to whether they have bought a forgery or an original. They showed hardly any reaction. It was only in only a few individual cases that they gave a negative appraisal and spoke out about forgery whereas, according to the study, 99 per cent of opinions were positive,.

The investigation shows likewise that many sellers of counterfeit articles operate with profiles which make it impossible for buyers to trace back for articles and information. These sellers often use the assessment profile ‘private’ by which they take away from users the opportunity to comment on items.

Frank Huber, Professor at Mainz University, underlined with this the study the consequences which imitations bring about for the company: “product forgeries can have an effect on the original brand”. They bring about a loss in image and prestige for the company as a consequence. Apart from the loss of turnover for the firm, the standing of the brand is harmed.” Huber calls upon companies report on product forgeries more vigorously.

It's all an illegal profit scam on global proportions perpetuated by ebay themselves.

I've been saying this for years.
If I put every article here I've read and posted around the net.
This server would crash.

It doesn't seem like it would be asking much for eBay to require a receipt proving you came by an item legally. Why don't they do this?

Well since ebay is aware of the problem, does nothing to stop it, has profited, and continues to profit from it, begins to look like conspiracy of some sort. Even since the Tiffany lawsuit not much has really been done by ebay to combat counterfeits.

It is all about the $$$ for ebay, they have NO regard for the consumer whatsover. The facts and figures prove it.

Maybe a petition should be started demanding that seller's are required to show proof of purchase and or ownership of an item before it is listed. Maybe eBay will be forced to make such a requirement or another auction site might decide it would be a boom to business do make such a requirement.

Ebay does not mind turning a quick, pimp-like profit on stolen priceless artworks

"We just found a pair of cannon on eBay - French 18th Century," said Radcliffe, whose paper-strewn office bears witness to the volume of cases the register handles. "EBay is just stuffed full of stolen goods."

Sleazebay is the world's biggest pimp/fence. The facts prove it!

I wonder what the ratio is now  for scammers on e-bay as opposed to the honest people that used to do bussiness with them.  If E-pay is losing 84 million customers a quarter, How much you want to bet those are all the HONEST ones leaving!

The scammers come back. Folks who have been burnt on sleazebay stay clear. Some of the biggest scammers are there and just have not been caught yet, or make sleazebay soooo much money that sleazebay apparently protects them.

Sleazebay/PainPal rely on newbies, so it is a good idea to tell folks who have never heard of or used it that is is, IN FACT, the worlds biggest, sleaziest scam, run by and populated with some of the worst sleazes in all known history.

(think of the children, those poor innocent children I say...)

Ex-Reno man indicted in "Lego" theft, eBay scam

RENO, Nev. (AP) - A federal grand jury indicted a former Nevada man Wednesday on charges accusing him of stealing hundreds of thousand of dollars of "Lego" merchandise from stores in at least five states and reselling it on the Internet.

William A. Swanberg, 41, Hillsboro, Ore., allegedly obtained the Lego building blocks and other goods illegally for much less than the legitimate price by placing counterfeit bar code labels over the real labels before paying for them at check-out stand, U.S. Attorney Daniel G. Bogden said.... (continued, click the link)

No wonder there are such apparent great deals on sleazebay, it is stolen!

What was sleazebay's cut from the sales? Should they not bear some of the burden/penalty as a co-conspirator?

Does the "just a venue" defense hold up with rented drug houses, or do they eventually do something to the landlord?

When will eBay make the changes they need to make. How could eBay let someone sell Legos on their site without supplying proof of ownership?

When I put up some Legos for sale in the local classifieds they ask for my original receipt and my federal Legos license. You would think that eBay would be subjected to the same requirements the local classifieds require.

As people wake up they will learn how evil eBay is.

I'm my state if a murder is committed in a rental unit the landlord is indicted as a co-conspirator. If the murder weapon was purchased at a local store the store owner is also indicted as a co-conspirator.

I'm just waiting for the day when a murder weapon is proved to have been purchased from eBay. Walmart, Kmart, Sears, all bear the responsibility if a Ginsu knife they sold was used in the commission of a crime and have acknowledged their responsibility. EBay should not be given special treatment!!!

While eBay can't not be held libel for the actions of the scam seller
in this situation.
The no doubt they have become the worldwide fencing network for sure.

they sure do little to nothing to try and curb it as we al know they profit from it so there is no incentive for them too.
But it is good to see so many heavy hitters going after them in court.

The good news really is that the general public seems to have caught on too.
That's why we see so MANY inactive numbers reported.

Buyers are as sick and tired of the place as sellers.

It's almost game over. IMO

They sure do rake in the profits from a wide array of scams. They do nothing pro-active to prevent it. They freeload for their security. Nothing but a scam, populated, run and used by slippery weasels and criminals.

We shall see what all the lawsuits from the exclusive brands brings about. They certainly has raised consumer awareness. Most everyone who is not a kool-aid drinking hardcore ebay cultist knows it is nothing but a scam and a sleazepit.

Ebay is an essential part of many scams, which they have knowledge of, and for which they are compensated. Seems that at some point they are at least just plain negligent. ~ Criminally since so many lose so much money, without any real redress. (then they try to collect the 25 dollar ebay protection deductible from victims too---what a scam!!!)

Here was another shocking illustration of ebay related crime here:
Shoplifting ring used heroin addicts and eBay

Amen Brother! Preach it loud because people need to know about eBay's role in crime.

If eBay wasn't around scam artist wouldn't be able to operate. Google won't let some scam artist run a "psychic" service ad offering phony readings to milk the ignorant of their money. You won't find any other auction site offering pirated DVD's, CD's, and Game disks. EBay is the only one that will accept such merchandise.

How people can allow eBay to operate is a total mystery!!! Before something is offered on eBay it should be examined and certified to be authentic before it can be put up for auction.

Only with message boards like this can reasonable voices begin to get the publics attention and teach them of the evils of eBay.

Bet you can hardly wait til the ankle bracelet comes off, eh?

How about some real registration and verification, AT THE GATE?

sleazebay wont change that because they make a profit on letting anyone register, without basically jack squat, and do a ton of BINs for example. If it cut into their profit to be sloppy, sleazebay would have already changed it.

Simple as that.

RIGHT ON BRO!!!

EBay should have to submit to the same standards as the other sites. Yahoo auctions, MSN auctions, Amazon sales, Google advertisements, etc.. To let eBay register sellers with simply a credit card and bank account number or credit check isn't acceptable. Yahoo, MSN, Amazon, Google all do much more extensive background checks before they let anyone register with them, I'm pretty sure they send a representative to the registrant address and investigate him thoroughly.

EBay should require that all sellers take credit cards so the consumer isn't left hanging in the wind if the item isn't shipped or isn't as described. YES! YES! YES! For eBay to allow sellers to accept money orders and checks is inviting disaster!

Everyday, in everyway, I'm getting healthier and healthier.

Why has sleazebay lobbied against any sort of legislation designed to regulate or certify or license sellers in various states?

Personally I think there should be a federal law requiring every internet user a license to get on the internet. The more the federal and state government get involved the better. Sale taxes, pornography, pirating, censorship could all be controlled if we'll only let the federal and state governments get better control of this media.

I'm glad someone else wants more government involvement in our lives besides me.

Librarian sold stolen books on eBay

A follow-up to the first news report in this thread.

Note the fact that once again, dysfunction, theft, heartache, depression, altered states of mind, and of course, as with all ebay related stories, a strong element of abject surreality accompany the report.

Denise Fitzpatrick, in mitigation, said that his motive for the thefts was not financial. The buzz he gained from stealing the books was an “emotional release from the turmoil he found himself in”. He was now “filled with remorse”.
(Why, it sounds like someone could have been coached by none other than sleazebay spokesperson Handsi Dirty, doesnt it?)

The criminal walked out of court a free man. Good thing for sleazebay's lax sign up requirements, he can be back to selling more stolen goods in no time! (Not to say his former ID is not still a member in good standing, as that nyc fireman-poser rapist, 'gulag'-whatever)

Nice picture of the heartbroken heartbroken, remorseful thief here. (looks like the typical ebayer)

It's VERY telling when they can create a scan program to find key words like "PP sux" or
"Send cash", but NOT create one to scan for "Louis Venten purse 10.00"
or "Gucci hand bag 4.95" or 'laptop computer .99'.

Yes verification AT THE GATE can be achieved.

But the debate really don;t matter anyway now does it?

The fools have THREE TIME more inactive users than they do active.
That says it all.
The FEDS may not need to step in.
The consumers are simply making the choice NOT to do eBay.

Very good indeed.
