Default Does eBay just not care?

Duplicate listings... the same card with two auctions:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1953-Bowman...0/123589037863

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1953-Bowman...0/123587930948

Never mind the shady tactic of listing an 8(OC) as a straight 8, but these are the exact same cards.

I emailed the seller alerting them to the "mistake" and was responded to "Why are you bothering me?". After that response it would seem that the seller did not make a mistake but is intentionally trying to deceive.

To follow-up I clicked on "report item" inside of the eBay listings and filled out their "duplicate item" form. That was Friday and it is now Monday and the items are still listed.

Does eBay just not care that these are duplicate listings?

Buyers beware. This makes me disappointed.

It gets better. He's already reneged on the sale of this card once when he didn't get what he wanted:

Ebay does care.

About their bottom line.

But not about you.

Or about me.

Or about any individual listing. Even if it's a duplicate.

I was on the phone with eBay's "customer service" earlier today, and after listening to excuses about why they couldn't help me with a simple problem, I said, "Do you guys actually care?" The guy on the other end of the didn't address the question, but simply repeated his last mindless excuse verbatim.

This card is like a sticky booger on his finger!

If you really want to to save the world, why not bid on it yourself? Then when you win, just refuse to pay. I did that once to a guy selling Diamond Stars as originals. He was not pleased. It was great fun, but it felt just a little bit dirty, so I never did it again.

I'm one of the last people that would defend ebay.....

There's just too much going on at all times. My guess is that in order to really police a lot of the shenanigans that go on, fleabay would probably have to hire a couple thousand people knowledgeable in different collectible areas and able to respond to emails, etc. It doesn't seem like it would take too much but that's a lot of people to hire to play collectibles cop....
