On new ebay accounts they have to have 20 DSRs before their money is automatically released. Unless this guy has gotten through the net, so the buyer would pay in, the money's held and then it's released either on positive feedback or proof the buyer has received their item- tracking, or after 21 days I think it is.


Looks more like a hacked profile to me..

Good luck to him. Anyone who ever buys from private listings, and where you can't see feedback etc, deserves all they get.

It doesn't seem to be a private listing and I can see his feedback?

You didn't try and log in did you? Probably not the wisest thing to do really...

Says private listing directly above title. And yes, you can see his feedback but not what the items were (except 2 items, neither of which were high value electrical items).
I can't think of a single legitimate reason why it should be private.

(_;) well he is from manchester...so beware !

It's not a new ebay account it was first setup in 04-Jun-08. Not sure when the new Paypal rule came in to effect, maybe his account was setup prior to this.

For those who did or did not attempt to gain access to his account I hope you did it on a different machine and IP address to your usual ebay account, flash cookies etc and account linkage may bring nasty ebay suspensions / aggravation for you.

I think they've changed it for every seller who has below 20 DSRs? So even if you have sold but not in the past year or so, they'll still hold onto your money?

anyone who buys a ipad deserves everything they get :P

People will get their money back from paypal, they will be the only ones losing out. And he has sold some high value goods, according to his feedback. You never know, he may even deliver on the goods, but they may have come from the back of a lorry.

Rose-tinted glasses view. You buy from an obvious scam - sure you probably get your money back, but it also probably costs Paypal money. Who pays for that money? Us, the users of Ebay and Paypal, in the long run.

I agree, they charge us enough fees already, but if their rules and system is failing, then the only way they will change it and make it more secure is if they are hit with a significant scam, thus creating a need for change. Pros and cons.

Maybe, 'significant' is probably huge given their size though; in cases like this the withdrawal account is presumably frozen so costs are merely man-hours in sorting out refunds, in cases like the MD Norfolk scam, which is probably as large as they get, its still likely well less than £100k they will lose out on (with a lot of the rest from Visa chargebacks). Given they make ~£1billion in profit a year, they will probably stick to their current system of high fees to cover such losses...
