ebay’s biggest troll, who outbids all customers, refuses to pay and then leaves bad reviews, has been outed as a man who rarely leaves his house.
Charles ‘Chuck’ Fitch of Canton, Michigan apparently hates eBay so much that he is doing his best to undermine the system by targeting its best sellers.
Fitch calls himself Ebayisajoke and harasses not only the ecommerce website and PayPal but also those who use it.
Local TV reporter Rob Wolchek hired private investigators to track down Fitch and they found he was a recluse who lived alone.
He did not deny accusations that he was Ebay’s worst troll.
Ebayisajoke ran his own YouTube channel, which has now been removed, where he dedicated his time trying to ‘expose’ the internet auction site.
Wearing an anonymous mask, he accuses eBay of various crimes and wrongdoings, and how sellers should use alternative sites. He is also fond of accusing sellers on eBay of malpractice.
Ebayisajoke’s method is to target small business owners, outbid everyone else and then refuse to pay. He then gives the seller a bad review, something sellers on eBay, where reputation is everything, fear above all.
According to Wolchek, Ebayisajoke set his sights on Joe DeMarco, claiming he abused eBay’s Significantly Not As Described buyer’s claim, which is said to let users get a free refund on anything they buy if it is not what they were expecting.
He threatened DeMarco, saying he was going to ruin him in every conceivable manner, firstly by going after his eBay account.
