Default Ebay high volume buyer?

I just noticed something curious about an ebay user that made a purchase from me.....

This user has a buyer feedback count of nearly 14000 and a seller feedback count of 0. They've received 4400 buyer feedbacks this month alone. The items purchased are completely random; pretty much any and everything.

They're apparantly a LLC. I'm just curious what type of company buys thousands of random items on ebay?

Government program to boost the economy instead plain handouts. In the 30's it was selling apples and fruit on the corner. It's Ebay now

Yeah, it could be a hoarder. eBay is like the ultimate place to shop for them.

I think I figured it out.....

The seller runs a .ru website for Russians to purchase things from American websites. Kind of like a Taobao agent, if anyone is familiar with that.

I kind of feel sorry for the poor Russian that used their site though. The item they purchased had $1.99 international shipping from me, and I'm sure this 3rd party site charges a premium considering they have to re-ship it to the client in Russia.

There is a peculiar species of hoarder who is a compulsive mail-order buyer. Their houses are generally full of unopened packages.

Yeah, packages are fun.... couldn't imagine NOT opening them.

I order from Hong Kong based sites (like dealextreme) a couple times a week. The items take weeks to show up and by the time they do it really is like xmas trying to guess what's inside.
