Exclamation Warning: eBay auctions showing up unauthorized on Yahoo Japan

My U.S. eBay auction for a Seiko SBCJ019 has been posted without my authorization on Yahoo Japan's auction site. Evidently a company called Shop Airline Inc., a.k.a. Seikamon, is copying U.S. eBay auctions and listing itself as the seller on Yahoo Japan under the name Saltotheworld_2008. My auction is by no means the only one where this is happening.

Here's the kicker: My watch is being sold for several hundred dollars more to buyers in Japan -- money that does not go to me.

If you sell on eBay, check Buyee.jp to see if your auction is being listed by Saltotheworld_2008 or any other unauthorized party.

If you find something amiss, contact Yahoo Japan, eBay, and Shop Airline. You'll have to create a Yahoo Japan account to contact them and sellers. I've contacted all three and will update if I hear anything.

Here is a link to shady Shop Airline:

Shop Airline email: [email protected]

Anyone else experience the same issue? What happened?

I've seen a lot of stuff on yahoo listed by this saltoftheworld account lately. Definitely one to steer clear of.

Oh yeah Saltotheworld has listed a whole bunch of mine too.

I tried to buy mine on Yahoo Japan through the prick to see what would happen but they told me he was a blocked seller.

This is what I got from Buyee Customer Service:
" This is Buyee Customer Support Team. Thank you for using our service.

Regarding the auction ID [........] under unblocking request,
our team has reviewed the auction details and concluded that we are not able to allow you to bid on this auction.

[Reason Bidding is Prohibited]
Buyee is unable to trade with this seller.
Thank you for your understanding."
