If you can point eBay at a seller who is bidding against himself, or bidding on his own items, that will get him banned. Do your homework and that should suffice.
Another way -- assuming you have already filed a Fair Trade complaint against him (all of his aliases) -- is to talk this up in the eBay forums. The more you guys can discuss it in there, the better visibility it gets with buyers AND eBay.
Years ago I got scammed and one of the one ways I was able to get satisfaction was the group-think in the forums. We complained about him and nailed every one of his new auctions, and were finally able to close him out of business (that we know of). We never got our money back, but it was enough to spare others the pain.
Most likely, sharing the information here will protect all of us, but beyond that, he won't feel a thing. Start pointing out his auctions and habits on eBay enough and he WILL start to feel it.
The guy's a jerk. Anyone is who scams people out of money. The shameful part is that he clearly has knowledge of HP calcs, and it frustrates me that someone with that level of knowledge is so malicious to others...
