Ebay does not protect buyers and it is understandable. Look at the # of  
your buys and the # of the seller. I can tell you horror stories and in the 
case  of 
_ggg*fitting_ (http://www.ebay.com/usr/ggg*fitting?_trksid=p2047675.l2559)  
when I posted a  negative review refused me a refund after I send back the 
defective used 5680  advertised as new. I did have the emails ebay did 
nothing. Sellers are more  important. I did post that experience on the list but 
since in conversation with  time nuts find out the still buy and experience 
problems. They deserve it.
Some sellers  know the system and communicate with you till time  expires 
for review and ebay and pay pal do not read the dialog only state seller  has 
responded, case closed.

Thank you Peter.

I find it odd that  so many time-nuts appear to be aware of this scam,
but have done little or  nothing about it.

I don't know if this is a "British thing" to want to  report such
practices, but we do have a few TV programs where reporters  have
exposed scammers. e.g.

"Coyboy  Builders"

"You've Been  Scammed"

In contrast, it  seems many time-nuts are aware yixunhk is selling
counterfeit items,  several have fallen victim to it, but few if any
have done done anything  about it. I find that quite strange  myself.
