G5's and Ebay scams

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I'm sure everyone is familiar with the most common ebay scams (http://www.flipshark.com/scams/ebayindex.html) and I think that Ebay has not done enough to thwart these kind of scams. Example, I was looking at a dual G5 and I asked the seller if I could arrange to pick up the systme if I won the bid since the seller location was near me. The seller gets back to me and says "Oh, I'm actually based in Portugal and I only take Western Union payments". Yeah, and I was born yesterday. The point is, how can someone say they're in the US if they're not? You need a valid credit card to register to Ebay, so you mean to tell me that they can't figure out a way to stop people from doing this? Really, I want to know. Is ebay doing enough and if not, what more should they be doing?

Lotsa G5's listed on ebay, most are dubious.

    Every auction should have report function. If enough people are clicking it then surely someone should be investigating....
