Listia Sellers beware !  Use  your credits, Listia is Listia is improperly labeled auction, its a fraudulent gambling auction scheme deliberately setup to rid you of your personal belonging for promise of $credits, you win some if you are a buyer or loose all if you are a seller. A real gamble You are left with zero 0.00 and no possession.   
running a fraud scam, stealing credits, suspending accounts, thinking they can get away with it.  over 195 victims in a few mos. 
We are flying blind for good great deals, selling & buying blindly taking part in a fraudulent auction scheme at SOMEONES LAUGH or our UNSEEN ENEMY. I also found out Listia is a UK and Middle East based company, its my suspicion that the reasons they do not return thousands of email messages is language related. Limited English speaking customer service.
Last yrs 4 of my church buddies got suspended within a 3 months period without reason.  ( heard of 43 suspensions but I knew 4 of them)  one day try to log in a red word appears 'account suspended' A day later you have violated Listia rules and login changed/canceled. These sellers all who had  40,000 - 60,000  credits, heard some had 132,000 credits at the time of suspension. I suspension was at 75, 550 .  There are other websites are reporting numerous complaints against Listia.   'google Listia complaints scam' you'll find more. 

If you do not have a lot of credit you may be are safe with Listia, members with  6500 8,000 credits you have a 5% chance of suspension, 30,000-35  50% chance of suspension, and 50,000  70 % chance of suspension without a clue or warning, for  NO reason.

Listia is setup that if they do not like an item, style of replying to messages etc  they snatch/remove/steal and suspend your credits. Just consider that you sacrificed all yr., list precious items,  ship from pinched pennies to Listia buyers to get to increased your credits to eg 140,900 - money credits then the next day you return they are gone.  You realized for 6 mos you shipped out your prized possession for 0.00  you feel like you want to DIE!   

Someone within Listia or Listias good business practice  randomly check accounts cancel your credits, that's it.  . Here is the catch, some members allow their credits to accumulate to large numbers like 30,000 - 300,000 + money credits.

Listen up  Listia lovers: if there was a bad seller, slow shipping etc. Ebay would warn them, contact them for explanation, in the worse senaro Ebay suspend them after attempting to to work with them, but suspense only they selling rights, Ebay allow them to buying privileges.  Ebay also calculate their earned credits money/fees and refund them.
Their website registered info is California mail drop, and voice mail with no capability of accepting messages/you cannot leave a message.  Any agency or organization who cannot maintain a real phone number where one can leave a message, or physical address where to accept snail, no  email address other than the registrar  admin website which  they do not respond, is hiding. Listia are you handing from IRS  and our Governmental and Federal laws and Financial laundering laws,  auction or gambling game, they have broke IRS laws, discrimination laws. Listia we can find anyone and you will return  via court orders our  $$$$$$$$$ .
Listia illegally sets up the website, because its improperly label auction, no disclosures provided to Sellers-registered members, I see you  changed the simple general 3 lines rules willy nilly which does not state you will loose your property and money.  I found no USA business license found, Middle Eastern IRAN and UK name is found.  That is why they are so bold in stealing credits.
I hope you read this Listia you can reach me at, I am a victim spreading my story unit a class action lawsuit is heard or the Feds get you.  If you think I am wrong and want to correct and make amends you know what to do.  wayntaylor at ymail dot com
Here in the USA business are accountable whether in cyber space, on water, or on dry land.   Listia we will find you, even in the Middle East, victims will be compensated for stolen credits, moneys, and goods, etc .even for damages.  The Feds and our  court orders are going to suspend into outta space !!!!!!

Listia is Not a Scam Not UK bases

AUTHOR: OAK114 - (United States of America)

I have used Listia for 1 year now, and enjoy the site. I have auctioned about 85 items I no longer wanted or needed, and they all found happy, new homes. I have won about 30 items, all which were great items, and a few of them from the Listia rewards store. The rewards store allows you to cash in your credits for new items and Amazon gift certificates.. This is not a scram or fraud. Not UK based either. Go to the Listia site, they have pictures of the employees. They are based in Mountain View, CA., which is the Bay area. The support team has given me the help I needed when I needed and have never took more than 1 day to get back to me. Like any other auction site, you must check Seller's feedback. Also look at the number of verification badges a seller has. If they have verified a phone #, credit/debit card and or bank account badge, its safe to say they are trustworthy. You must read and abide by Listia's rules, just like Ebay or any other auction site. They do not steal credits nor do they suspend accounts for no reason. If an account is suspended, that person did something wrong, and was warned first. They have a strict rule that says one cannot have multiple accounts from the same computer, and no more than 2 per household. This is strictly enforced.
