    Ah yes, I used to do that with epic Cataclysm gems. Problem is, I'm not sure if he runs cancel scans or just let stuff expire, also most of the stuff I checked has the same bid and buyout price.

    If you report bots it usually takes a while for Blizz to react or they wait until bundling accounts for these large ban waves.

    One of my AH toons is in one of These 1000 member level guilds. So in guild chat I called out 2 AH bots and ask guild members to report them. Over the Course of a few days probably 100-150 People reported the bots and the bots disappeared quickly.

    I assume exceeding a certain number of Report triggers a Manual Investigation and quicker countermeasures.

    Cheers, I'm not in any big guilds but I'm in 2 raiding guilds, I'll ask them and my battletag friends. We have a reasonable sized and active FB page for the server, I'm considering posting there but there is a chance he or a friend of him is in there.

    So far I've been steadily feeding him 400-500g each and 200g each since I doubt he'll ever sell one of those at his listing prices. It's quite entertaining but profit wise, not worth my time.
    I've posted them from my random characters before, but going to try a different approach; I'm mailing everything to 1 char and post using remote AH so he can't see me online. Hopefully I can bait him into sending hate mail eventually so I have another reason to report / ticket him.

    For me as I was using a secondary account and all the item's and wealth were stored in my primary bank toons Gbank which was on my main account, and entirely seperate Bnet account it removed the risk in regards to that. Though it's completely understandable if you wouldn't want to take that chance.

    This is absolutely amazing. Other than messing with him and taking his gold until he eventually gets banned, theres really not much you can do. May as well have some fun with it.
