I don't get scammed, even attempted to, at all¹; I think it's because I accept only bank transfers as payments.

Of course that's a compromise (I'm sure it reduces the audience), and that may not work good enough in some countries, or for some type of sales (I've sold up to ~1700$, I think), but I think it's preferrable [where it works] to stop using eBay at all.

Regardless, this is serious though:

> Ebay has absolutely no interest in blocking these scammers.

When I tried to expose the "scammer", eBay was essentially not interested.

¹=except the occasional one who attempts the ridiculous nigerian release-after-receival scam.
