By her own admission, Margaret Whitman will never be mistaken for a nerd. So it is no wonder that many people raised an eyebrow when the Harvard MBA and former head of Hasbro's preschool divison joined eBay in early 1998. Yet she quickly proved her technology mettle. When eBay's site crashed for 22 straight hours and remained unstable for weeks in 1999, Whitman dug in and solved the problem. In the years since then, eBay's online marketplace has exploded into a blockbuster Internet success story.

i'm tired of the fraud on ebay. the sellers from overseas will blame lost items on the US mail system and refuse to refund your money. what's worse, ebay's customer service gives no satisfaction. what can i do? i have only been using ebay for 4 months and this has happened to me 3 times. all sellers from the UK. i'm bitter and no longer trust ebay.
