This is only partly true.

I have personally been getting eBay to shut down scam listings. Normally, I use "ask seller a question" to inform the owner of a hijacked account about the unwarranted activity.

Lately, the scammers have caught on to this, and when they hijack an account, they change the e-mail address to direct the e-mail to themselves. So, I have ended up sending warnings directly to scammers, through the eBay site.

I got a scam second chance offer, and ended up having a very enjoyable run around with a scammer. I finally got him to say he was in London (of course he wasn't), but for some reason when I said I was there too, let's have lunch, I didn't hear back....
