  1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Item no longer on ebay and seller is not a registered user, but even with that listing and feedback people bid on it :rolleyes:

    The validity does not matter to the bidder, as their money is protected by eBay whatever happens.

    So on the off chance something is real, they get what they are bidding for.

    I get that, but all they're doing is encouraging the scammers to try it in the first place.

    if a scammer wants to rip eBay off for a few quid let them have a go I say. eBay is an evil company and any drain on their millions per hour is fine by me.

    The scam advertisers also have their shill bidders I assume so no surprise there are bids.
