+1, although I do agree Ebay sucks, but you can not blame the action of fraudulent indivduals solely on Ebay. Ebay is taking measures to prevent fraudulent activities, but as you know, there's not a cure-all solution to deter all frauds

You can hardly hold them financially to account if the other individual turns out to be a fraudster.

I'm pretty new to ebay - but I think that the system does work generally. Sounds to me like you just had some bad luck.
