Complaint of the week: Ebay abuse mail (slightly OT)
To add to the eternally annoying list of companies that ignore abuse@ mail... ebay now requires that you fill in their lovely little web form to send them a note. Even if, say, you're trying to let them know about another scam going around that tries to use the machine www.hnstech.co.kr to extract people's credit card information. Has anyone had success in convincing companies that this is just A Bad Idea (ignoring abuse mail), and if so, how did you manage to do it? Sorry for the slightly non-operational content, but I've had it with ebay on this one. -Dave ----- Forwarded message from eBay Safe Harbor <SafeHarbor@eBay.com> ----- Date: Sat, 02 Aug 2003 22:58:01 -0700 From: eBay Safe Harbor <SafeHarbor@eBay.com> Subject: Your message to firstname.lastname@example.org was not received (KMM86277800V90276L0KM) To: "David G.
