I agree that those are fake IDs and they'll be trouble.
Interesting. Would someone enlighten me to the purpose of these spam accounts? I don't see the benefit of creating a spam ID and using it to bid, unless like BB said they are trying to win cheap auctions to build feedback.
Many of my sales are fixed price, but I've noticed an increase in this sort of buyer (unintelligible ID, low/no feedback score) - in one case my buyer was NARU'd even before I had shipped the item.
Am I missing something?
These are ID's who have previously purchased as eBay guests and then clicked the option to create an account following their guest purchase. eBay then gives the option to select a new username but you don't have to, so it then assigns you a nonsensical ID like those above.I agree that those are fake IDs and they'll be trouble.
Cancel the bids and block. While they may be legit, there are too many chances that they aren't and I'd avoid potential problems.
ETA: Both are supposedly registered in CA. This is too much of a coincidence that they're both from the same state. IMO, it's more reason to BBL.
