Over the past month, eBay sellers on U.S. discussion boards have been discussing the problem of Chinese "BIN bandits" on eBay.

That sucks. I've been getting funky emails lately about items. I dumped one cause it wasn't through ebay but was made to look like an ebay message. I answer all my emails through outlook express. I don't really want to even block China, I've had several really good transactions from people there. Much of the old Soviet area too. I realize that since I don't use mymessages I have the potential to get fake emails and that isn't ebay's fault. What is, is when people register and buy through ebay with no intention of paying and ebay will give me a credit? Don't like that in the least.
