Exactly! I wouldn't trust that feedback..if people fall for that they're naive, because it is a jpg. You can't even see the items the feedback was left for so I hope people start to realize this guy'* a joke..

Yes, but if you click on his name there are 142 positive feedbacks all for his shitty resistor-in-a-box. For many different vehicles I might add. I wonder if this guy gives discounts for false feedback or something...

True, I went back and clicked on his name. Something isn't right...I would say he had people he knew "buy" them and leave false feedback, but that'* a lot of different people.

Anyone who would buy one of these things probably just assumes they can 'feel ' the power.
Kinda like the people who feel better after taking a placebo, it'* all in their head

Yea exactly..... or it'* just him and a few friends and they all have multiple accounts.... each providing false feedback on the others.
5 people with 5 accounts each is 25 accounts.
I dunno... I don't do my own ebaying.... I have a friend do it for me.... but is mutliple accounts possible?

Multiple accounts is possible. I tried it out of curiosity once and I was able to open another account with a totally different name, but with the same credit card. Ebay just sends you an email (alert) saying that 'someone' opened an account with your card...and to notify them if it was not authorized...or something to that effect.
