eBay scammer scams buyer then demands items back (LoL)

YouTube recommended this video for me and it’s quite a good one. Basically eBay buyer, buys a phone in this case a Samsung Galaxy of some sort, never gets the phone, never gets the refund either, eBay & PayPal say “sorry so what” leaving him high and dry, the seller meanwhile closes up shop/jumps eBay accounts/changes user names etc. some time passes and oddly 2 boxes of phones & assorted phone accessories arrive at the scammed buyers house, now here it gets interesting because the scammer has the nerve to ask the buyer to send back the box’s at his cost. Watch the video it’s worth it :p

eBay user horror story involving a large amount of cash in this instance $1173 from a sale of Magic The Gathering cards gone very, very wrong.

How eBay Worked With The FBI To Put Its Top Affiliate Marketers In Prison

A article from May 2013 detailing how eBay decided to screw some of its top affiliate marketers, it seems basically the people doing the marketing were making too much money and eBay wanted it back, so they decided to use the law to get rid of them. I have read about this happening before, I can’t find much info on eBay’s affiliate programs but when it does pop up its always about eBay screwing the person… eBay knows full well how and what they get upto, I have read stories in the past about account managers taking “gifts” (see bribes) from top affiliates and “not knowing” (see out of sight out of mind) what there up to.
