Internet Troll Who Scams People On Ebay Turns Out To Be Obese Single Man Living In A Detroit Suburb, Total Shocker
An internet troll who harassed successful sellers on eBay in a bid to put them out of business has been exposed after years of abuse. Charles ‘Chuck’ Fitch, from Canton, Michigan, is said to be the man behind the mask who calls himself Ebayisajoke and harasses not only the ecommerce website and PayPal but also those who use it. A television reporter in Detroit, Michigan, hired private investigators to track down the man who targeted individual customers, sending them a torrent of threatening abuse. They found him living in an apartment in the commuter town of Canton, but when they confronted Mr Fitch, an obese bachelor who appears to live by himself and stay inside most of the day, he did not deny accusations that he was Ebay’s worst troll.Ebayisajoke, who has his own YouTube channel, dedicates his time to trying to ‘expose’ the internet auction site, accusing it of various crimes and wrongdoings, and talking on camera – hidden by a ghoulish Guy Fawkes mask – about how sellers should use alternative sites. Using voice alteration software to help keep his identity hidden, he also uses his films to accuse sellers on eBay of malpractice. It is believed Ebayisajoke began his abuse, much of which is found on his blog ebayblows.org, after he was shut down by the site for breaking their rules.
Wolchek, who was the first reporter to unmask the serial troll, says Ebayisajoke’s method is to target small business owners, outbid everyone else and then refuse to pay, so that the seller’s sale fell through. He would also then give the seller a bad review, something sellers on eBay, where reputation is everything, fear above all.nvestigators hired by Wolchek identified the troll as Charles ‘Chuck’ Fitch, and after days of watching him leave his apartment only to buy lunch at Subway or to hit Walmart, the reporter confronted him after he went to the cinema by himself. Wolchek approached the man and put it to him that he was the man behind Ebayisajoke, a claim Fitch, who got into his truck and drove away, did not refute. According to theDailyDot.com, Fitch seemed more concerned with his online persona, writing afterwards: ‘As far as Ebayisajoke is concerned they didn’t expose anything and everything he was doing online was in fact legal.’ Mr DeMarco is said to have reported the troll to the FBI.
You mean to tell me that the guy who sits on Ebay all day outbidding people just so he can fuck their business up is an obese bachelor living in Michigan who only leaves his house to eat at Subway or Walmart? Get the fuck out. No way. I don’t believe it.
I guess my only question is this. It seems like this guy has been anonymous for quite some time. That he has been wreaking havoc on the internet and no one has been able to find him. So why didn’t anyone think to just sit at WalMart and wait for the obese person to order 5 two dollar hot dogs and a 40 oz coke? That seems like the most logical spot right? Like you know how the TSA stops every Muslim guy because they’re the most likely to be terrorists? Racial profiling but at the same time the most logical choice. Well the same goes for internet trolls. The guy that only leaves his 1 bedroom apartment to eat lunch at WalMart is almost definitely going to be the same guy who scams people on Ebay for a living. Not exactly rocket science. Let’s put on our reporting hats and use some common sense guys. This guy has internet troll written all over his obese body.
Have a rainbow day !
