High Risk Selling and Seller Risk Management

HRS Appeals

High Risk – bidding refers to the proactive fraud work type that targets users, with little or no feedback, who are showing an extraordinary bidding pattern on the site.

They bid and win multiple identical high value items.

These bidders usually use stolen funds, fake contact information and want to have the items shipped fast.

High Risk Buying

Mass Registration

This work type actions accounts that are registered in mass (100 plus accounts at a time). These accounts have the sole intent to commit fraud.

High Risk Buying/ Mass Registration

The appeals of suspensions HR Mass Registration are handled by the SH team. This suspension was placed by the system in case of suspicion of automated creation of fraudulent eBay account or suspicious buying activity. We ask the member to justify the contact information provided upon registration.
