eBay Motors seller Hubcapjoes is accessing his connections at eBay Inc, and PayPal to look up linked eBay accounts of Critics or his competition in order to have them Suspended.
This is a serious breach of Trust and Safety in which he has had the below listed account terminated after they called into eBay complaining about his continued online abuse and harassment from his YouTube channel and from other social media accounts.
The seller’s name is Joseph Demarco AKA Crazeenydriver, he does a weekly video called “EBay Talk” claiming that he’s helping people with eBay related matters but really just talks about his own personal online issues he has with the company.
Hubcapjoes is an admitted Spokesman or employee for eBay Inc and uses YouTube and his Bulgaria Hosted Website to incite hate against critics and former sellers on eBay.
His channel is comprised of fake YouTube shill accounts while he reads off fake comments each week claiming to be sent in from his audience.
This is shilling your YouTube channel with Spam. Channels like this, instead of growing ever more popular will actually decline because the goal behind this guy’s channel is to talk about eBay policies his seller friends don’t agree with.
eBay Inc on the other hand, can’t terminate this seller’s account because he has too much damaging information behind the smear campaign of eBayisajoke and Ed Koon of Docs Quality Cars, and if eBay terminates Joe’s seller account this NJrat will sing a song like you wouldn’t believe. Do not patron this guy’s online business or his store in Oradell New Jersey Hubcapjoes.

Screen Capture of the Terminated Account:
This is the suspended email we got from eBay after calling in to report this seller. His connection at PayPal is Scott Henshaw and others that have access to accounts possibly from their own home where they can remove people from the platform. This is an obvious Account Security issue.

eBay Data Breach by PayPal Employees for eBay Top Sellers
Since the user above openly states that he was able to get an account suspended from eBay, unfortunately, since eBay’s entire user database was compromised, the database infiltration may be just the tip of the iceberg. The attackers obtained the user IDs, passwords, email addresses, phone numbers, and physical addresses of 145 million eBay customers. This means that eBay users are now easy targets for identity theft and phishing attacks. So, it’s probably a good idea to keep an eye on your credit report for any bogus new accounts and beware of any suspicious emails or phone calls that you receive which ask for additional personal information.
How to Protect Yourself on eBay
1. Change Your Password
eBay allows you to use up to 20 characters in your password, which can be comprised of any combination of lower and uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters. I suggest you use a computerized password generator to generate a new password that uses all of these elements.
2. If you used your eBay user ID or password for other online accounts, immediately change your login information at those Web sites as well.
Crackers often attempt to use stolen login information at several sites. This is why it’s risky to reuse the same login credentials at multiple Web sites.
3. Do not confirm or provide personal information in response to any email or text message which claims to be from eBay, and NEVER click on any links contained in these messages.
Just this morning, I received a fraudulent email from a party claiming to be eBay which included a link which I was told I could use to change my password. After just a few seconds of research, I learned that if I clicked on the link I would be connected to a server in the Ukraine that was masquerading as eBay. So, when you follow the instructions above to change your eBay login credentials, be sure to manually type “www.ebay.com” into your browser yourself.
4. Review Your Bank and Credit Card Statements Frequently
If you notice any charges that you don’t recognize, contact the fraud department at your bank or card issuer immediately.
