Why do Ebay's job for them? People pay stupid prices for stupid items on
ebay everyday, you are never going to stop them all. At least with this
one, someone will only need to pay 99p to learn a valuable lesson. Always
shop around/research before you buy anything. This applies to buying things
online or buying things on the high street. The only difference is that
ebay makes it alot easier to throw your money away.

A simple search on google for 'sky FTV card' brings up information on the
'pout' method as the first link.

time

He is selling freely available information for a profit. I don't know if
eBay have a rule against this but they should do.

People buy newspapers, the content of which is freely available elsewhere;
should there be a rule against this too.

Ebay don't seem to care about anything at all, apart from being paid.
Rarely have I come across a company less concerned about its
customers.

I think that you've missed the point here. Ebay's customers are not the people
who buy things on the auctions. Their customers are the people who are selling
items. It's just like estate agents their customers are not the people buying
houses but those people selling them.
