I feel very strongly that specialty lists like this one are the best tools to combat vendor fraud and also to clear up misunderstandings that do not involve fraud. I have been the victim of ebay fraud as well, and now, when very rare things are offered, I check the specialty web chatter to see what is said about the vendor. This has saved me some costly mistakes. Often these specialty websites can even identify the sources of the photos used in fraudulent ebay ads. Some web forums even keep track of the web IDs of the fraudsters. This is a real service. Of course, accusations of fraud can also be fraudulent, but the truth should come out eventually.  
  I strongly encourage an open discussion of any apparent cases of fraud involving bulb sellers, on ebay or elsewhere.
