Why can't my friends of Facebook bid on any of my actions? When he bid on one of mine is said deleted fraud activity or something like that. How can it be Fraud if they say post on there so more people can bid on your action!? He wanted it & is a friend so he wanted to bid so I don't understand that. Can anymore help? Is it going to cause a problem for the both of us?

your friend only buy item from your username, and NOT buying from others. it's a kind of dishonesty, and a fraud in listia.

even if 2 are diff people because that person only buys your username things, and nobody else so yes you both will be suspended.

I just want to make a comment about Listia.com I have won several auctions on Listia which I received the items no problem at all. But, when winning an auction on Listia I never hear from the seller at all and never know if the item is shipped or what.. I just think that if you are selling something then give customer service to the winner by communicating with them. Let them know something. I do sell on Listia and I always communicate with all my winners for I know I would like the same respect to customer service. I have bid on a tv and the winner said to send him a money order for the shipping so I sent a money order for the total amount he said for shipping. It has been a week now and I haven't heard from him at all. I don't know if he is shipping it to me or not so I don't know if I should file a dispute or wait. I am just so furious over no communication......

Don't waste your time with Listia. They are almost impossible to contact if you would like to talk to a real person. Most of the time when I bid, I wait until near the end, but ALWAYS get outbid. This is time consuming, and all for nothing. I bid--and WON- one time, but the seller never delivered. And even though I tried over and over to get my credits returned by Listia, they just ignored me.

I would like to suggest to Listia that they have a wider question and answer base on their "Faqs". Seems what you can find out is very limited. For example, a winner gave me her verified address. I shipped it off, only to come home to find she suddenly became "Inactive". Did she quit, get suspended, what? I wish Listia would simply put in their Faqs a list of what exactly certain statuses mean. Like is "Inactive" mean you have nothing up for auction or bidding or is it a type of suspension? And when I go away, is there an option to put myself on vacation mode? My sister recommended I start on Listia, just to "get my feet wet" in shipping items online to get comfortable with it before I go on to Etsy or another webstore. I've had a few minor bumps, made some mistakes (like bidding before I looked to see if shipping charges were involved!), have never heard back from one of my winners, etc. I know I haven't been doing this long, but I have learned a lot. Something I will definitely do from now on, when I send an item to a winner that went for a high bid, I will pay extra for tracking. Actually, I've had a lot of fun and stress with Listia. I think learning and experiencing ups and downs will prepare me for when I open my shop on Etsy.

your friends all accounts has 4XXX credits, when they bid to u. they are attempting to give all their accounts all credits to you.

Listia has a rule violation call FUNNEL CREDITS, mean what

your friend bid on you, they funnel their acc all credits to your account. make you a lot of credits to buy things.

funnel credit will result in listia suspend account.

if you look "buy listia credits" they stated that only if you buy credit from listia the credits are legal and legit. if you use funnel credit.

all account buy one account things and made credit gather to that main account. because same eprson/multi acc u dont have actual item deliver/mailing.no actual trade.

many people got banned due to this. funnel credits

they are doing what you and your freinds are doing. to buy so many credits are not cheap. so they do that, so one acc has SUPER HIGH CREDIT AMOUNT to buy almost all site all items

There are people on the Listia site who list items they don't even have. We have won 3 auctions never got item because seller wont respond. I love your Listia but, some people think its funny to have people bid on items they never had. Should be banned from listing anything else.

Does anyone know how to contact the person that is over the site? I have had a bad experience with this site. I won an auction and the seller has never, after three attempts of me email the seller have they got a hold of me. They have 1010 credits of mine, but I am disputing this auction. There have been a few auctions I have won and the sellers were very prompt at getting back with me and shipping the item. Honestly, I am done with this site. I am beginning to believe that there are scammers on this site, and I am not going to fall victim to them, especially when the item I had won was a game for my son.

I have had the same problem with getting credits for surveys. I notice some of the surveys will give credits, most will not. In this case, I suggest that you contact Listia and tell them you are not getting credit for completing surveys. It could be a simple mistake. Perhaps you missed an important task to complete. For example when you sign up, you must fill in the complete form, and then wait for them to send you a survey to your email to complete in a timely manner. IF you did not complete the survey as soon as they would have liked, it could be they will not credit you. But again it is a good idea to contact Listia to find out what is really going on.

your friend cant just buy from YOUR USERNAME items and not buy one other person items.

if you are only one freind doing this, no problem. but also, listia may also suspend it's just a matter of time.

but if you got two or more friends doin this. then it will quicken you and the people involved BEING SUSPENDED.

it's just similar to one person open a lot of acc and gather all acc's marks to one main acc

it's listia rule violation calling FUNNEL ALL ACC MARKS TO ONE MAIN ACC TO USE THAT BIG CREDIT ACC TO SCAM PPL FREE STUFF. it's illegal in listia and yes people doing this would really be suspended.

just the more acc u hold the faster u will be caught

I don't even understand the concept of this site. Whoever is running it makes 0 money? If you want to sell used things you can do it on ebay. I went to the site and even saw job listings. How can people work for a web site if there is never any money passing hands. I would be afraid to use this site and sell on it. If you want to get rid of used items you don't need you can give it to charities and use it as a tax deduction. It sounds so odd to me. Why would anyone want to get rid a piece of jewelry that is pretty for points to buy something that they may be scammed on. I don't want someone else's used merchandise especially if I don't know them and especially if it is something I would wear.

More questions about Listia

How much money does Listia make stealing from their members? I bid on an item and right before I win, a brand new fake account with no history bids and wins to stop me from winning. How can I report that How do I get Listia to re-set my account so that I can begin setting up my sell pages in time for all the fall holidays? Help! when you guys change over to ink protocol(xnk) will 27,500,000 credits be worth 10,000 coins? that is my question Unfair! I got a permanent ban from Listia and was given a list of reasons for which anybody might get banned but for which was I specifically banned? yes, why every day is waiting time for selling credits increasing. There is no way, why this would go on, unless Listia is putting their sales ahead of everyone else. Is there any other explanation??? If I have received shipping addresses for items, aren't I supposed to receive the money for shipping (from the seller that I have said it mandatory) first before I send anything out? I finlally after jumping trough all the hoops got access to be on the list to sell my credits. Now it is literally 3 months later and I am still looking to sell the same 317000 credits only know due to the rampant inflation in your site, those are worth a full third less. When can I post these credits for sale? I'm going to seak legal advice on how you changed the value of a credit-Years ago I really liked Listia and have met a lot of nice people and some are even friends now-But what Listia has done is WRONG when it comes to a credits value-Years ago a credit was not that far off from being a dollar-But now its only worth pennies-And someone from Listia sent me back a email saying the value of a credit now days is determind on what others sell there credits for-This is a bunch of BULL -HIT Because years ago you never had this of people being able to sell there credits-And I for one DO NOT WANT IT THIS WAY-and if I started a poll I bet 99 % of others would not want it-Because the ones who are going to sell there credits cheap are the ones leaving Listia And I cant blame them-Has ANYONE from listia took a look at the complaint boards and the reviews and scores-Listia USED TO BE up near the top--What To Heck Happened-And WHY TO -ll did you ever change it-YES---I'm upset and mad over this-I have LOST millions of credits and items from not knowing how much a credit had dropted in time-REFUND me We Listia sellers SHOULD HAVE BEEN INFORMED about such a drop in a credits value-And I did not want to join your stock market---LISTIA is and will continue to go down hill if this continues-And I will be looking for help Listia banned my account for funneling credits. What is that. I want my account back.
