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:

Anyone else experience the same issue? What happened?

Posting his link is just going to rack up his hit rate, maybe you could have a another thought on it
I wish I had something really funny to put here

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."
