I was looking for sites to report blatant fraud and other crimes on eBay.co.uk.
* Ebay.co.uk itself provides a contact us link for fraudulent listings but has been found to be non-responsive in most cases, and one cannot report the actual seller only each listing.
* bidfraud.com claims to be a fraud reporting service but it fails due to Ebay changing the item number length to 12 digits.
* www.hmrc.gov has links to report UK employers that are not-registered for tax, but they do not seem to fit the case of a fraudster.
* shopthem.com has a set of links for reporting certain crimes such as counterfeit goods, customs and excise (many foreign ebayers openly claim to evade these taxes). Some report links work, but silently so I have no idea if anything has been reported. The General Crimes report form simply fails with a bad referrer error. I have reported this to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Does anyone have any better fraud-reporting sites? please, no links to pay-for-reporting scams, I've seen enough of those.
Edited by me 11 July: bidfraud now handles 12 digit codes and reports can now be made; their admin responded to email query. However bidfraud lacks powerful search and summaries to be useful as a warning to others (my opinion only of course).
