Reader Says eBay Wipes Car-Parts Negs Clean

By: Reader

Dear Ina,
There is a seller on eBay - (redacted) - who receives plenty of negative feedback, but they ALL get wiped off each day.

This is a seller of cheap Chinese parts with over 646,000 feedbacks and is 100% positive (a nearly impossible feat). 

One day I saw 22 negatives and at the end of the day the seller had zero negatives again. This happens every single day. You can watch the negatives rack up - then disappear.

This is so unfair. Why would eBay do this for this seller?
S.

The answer is in the OP's letter:

"a seller of cheap Chinese parts"

No further explanation necessary.

The seller in question either is paying so much in fees each month that eBay doesn't want to lose him, or he's got a deal with eBay to pay them so much a month to remove the negatives. As Pace has stated many times, it's all Pay for Play on eBay.

Ebay has so many partnership agreements with the various Chinese government agencies that it is probably part of one of those partnership agreements.  Wenig tried his hardest to not make any announcements about many of those agreements but his constant statement that "China is Ebays future" pretty much says it all about how Ebay deals with the Chinese, especially if it is a government owned company.

This is an old story, eBay has favorites (aka anyone feeding them lots of cash) and for those people - the rules dont apply.

Ive seen eBay do all kinds of shady things - we all have - when you deal with the San Jose mafia - shady deals happen.

If you have some free ready cash - call your local Yakuza/Mafia/Triad rep in San Jose and ask for a meeting. eBay will send a rep or 2 to your place of business and you can work out a deal - its not hard, its not even secret - its just EXPENSIVE.

eBay is pay for play - its been that way for 20 some odd years now and if you can claim you are a maker of the goods you sell - you can get the crooks in VERO in on the action as well.

If you need an example of how shady eBay actually is, consider the Devin Wenig "hit squad" he commissioned, then avoided accountability for.  The "leader" of the squad, a former police officer, is now serving 18 months in federal prison for felony crimes he and his team committed in harassing and worse toward the publishers of this site.

While I haven heart about any of the other five or six other morons on the "hit squad", I recall reading that Wenig himself denied having anything to do with it (a lie) and was fired from eBay by the Board of Directors, who obviously weren't being diligent about the company; Wenig was fired, probably more for getting caught doing this than anything, but still received a supposed $57 MILLION DOLLAR payout from eBay and was not arrested.

Having money goes a long way when dealing with law enforcement, apparently.
