What gets me is that SNK/Playmore haven't gone after this guy and his mother (he's had several accounts shut down, but keeps selling under his mothers).

I really wish eBay was better about doing something about these illegal auctions. Granted in the case of this guy there is no obvious evidence he's a crook, but it's well known in the Neo Geo community. What I'd like to know is how he keeps from getting negative feedback. I do know he sets the auctions up so that the bidders names are hidden, I assume this is so people can't warn the bidders he's a crook.

I've reported people selling Neo Geo MAME ROMs to eBay before, but they don't ever do anything about it :^(

On a positive note, I just got my wife a brand new Metal Slug 4 cart, purchased from a *HIGHLY* reputable dealer :^) Though not from eBay.
