I have been on Ebay for 20 years now. I see all kinds of funny business on there on a regular basis. I think the scammers have learned how to get away with scamming people, as some of these people have many multiple ID's so you don't really know if the auction is real or is it just the seller using lots of different ID's to bid on their own items. In the old days you could investigate, so to speak, but now they have hidden bidders id's, and done plenty to protect sellers, including the scammers. Some of them I can tell that they aren't legit, but some of them I can't. I know you can check the percentage of bids with a particular seller, but for me that doesn't really tell you that much often. Are there any other ways of finding out if the seller is legit?
