As a seller, some protection is there but very limited. I've only had two bad experiences where the buyer defrauded me and I lost money. It wasn't much but it has put me off on selling anything of real value on eBay.

I watch BSA classics and as many as 30 fraudulent listings can appear in minutes and do so on a regular basis. I have reported many but as mentioned you get to spot the format and MO. Silly low prices also. So i personlly just see it as a nuisance.
They do get taken down but whoever posts them has an appetite to keep at it.
I suppose Ebay struggle to monitor all posts even if they have some kind of scan to ID the MO of the poster.
I'm also a watcher of BSA's on eBay, the amount of scam adverts is unbelievable!
