When a fake item on eBay isn't removed and is a successful completed auction... Do you contact the highest bidder? What's the best thing to say in a message to them? I've contacted quite a few and just wonder what others send (if people do contact them!) I guess my biggest concern would be if I contacted a high bidder, they didn't pay, and then told the seller that I was the one who told them not to. Could eBay go after me for encouraging non-paying bidders? ush: I just feel like there should be consumer advocates in the eBay world who take it as a duty to inform people who are being scammed! eBay has gotten so huge that I know they can't/don't have as many "watchdogs" as are necessary.
