While we had various methods of country blocking enabled in the past, it was spotty and not as reliable as required.
Therefore, today we implemented a brand new, highly-advanced method of blocking traffic from all countries except the United States. This immediately had a measurable positive effect on network traffic and should make a significant difference in the amount of spam that sellers receive.
Spammers and scammers tend to find ways through, no matter what tools or policies are in-place. Please remember to always be diligent and safe.
We strive to make the platform better every day!
