Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to send us this additional information.

Michael, I do understand your concern about the possible connection
between these members.  Since eBay does take complaints like yours very
seriously, I hope that you understand our need for conclusive evidence
linking members before we can take action.  With that in mind, I have
found that there is not enough evidence to show that that members are
connected. However, I understand your concern about this situation, and
can reopen the investigation if any additional information can be
provided.

Michael, thank you for your continued concern about the safety of our
eBay community.

Regards,

Lilith

Hi Lilith,
Did you look into his former username, Hott Items?
I did some investigating of my own, and found the exact time he switched
from one username to another:

His last auction as "Hott Items" user name:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3D1849396657

His first auction as "joeanthony1" user name:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3D1850252678

There! It's the same guy, with 12 complaints, doing business under a
different user name.
Here are all the items he sold in the past 30 days under the old  "hott
items" user name:


http://cgi6.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?MfcISAPICommand=3DViewListedItem
s&us
erid=3Dhott_items+&include=3D0&since=3D30&sort=3D8&rows=3D0

Check it out!

If it's blatantly obvious to us regular outsiders, then you
professionals at
E-bay ought to be able to see it too!

Thanks.

Michael L. Riebs.

Actually, it's the brand new member you should be investigating, not
every one of the 1503 items he has for sale, all of which sound
questionable if you ask the 700+ members of the Audifans mailing list.
A brand new member:
joeanthony1 (1)
Member since: Tuesday, Aug 06, 2002
and 1503 items for sale, all ending on the very same day, all of which
are seemingly bogus performance parts for various car makes.
Hope we're all wrong about this guy.
