GG blogs into town with safety in mind

No primary category set

Safety Center

The all new Safety Centre has been live for a month on along with revelations about GG. GG is unmasked to be the moniker given to Garreth Griffith the Head of eBay Trust and Safety in the UK and Ireland and the first entry in the Trust & Safety Blog links to an interview with GG to introduce the work he and his team do.

It’s still a strange type of blog though, no RSS feed, no permalinks, no trackbacks, no comments and only one post…. perhaps it’s because have still yet to fully enable blogs in the UK.

We do hope they roll blogs and the other MyWorld features for the UK soon. Regardless we look forward to seeing some serious blogging going on in the UK to keep us informed of what’s going on – It’ll give us here at TameBay a rest! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bang in the center of the Safety Center are six top tips for staying safe on eBay, along with more specific advise for buyers and sellers accessible from the sidebar. There is extra advice for sellers for when things go wrong, including the all important link to the Account Theft help for hijacked ebay accounts page, it’s strange that this link wasn’t also included on the information for buyers.

Finally if you want to know what makes GG get out of bed in the morning all is revealed. It’s not the same as most of us: the need for a trip to the bathroom. It’s the super-dedicated “Knowing that the work of my team protects thousands of innocent, good eBay traders every day and assists law enforcement in putting fraudsters behind bars.” ๐Ÿ˜‰
