News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Connie Swaim, AntiqueWeek editor, is in attendance at the fifth annual eBay Live conference and Collectibles Summit in Las Vegas, NV. Connie is attending the conference to find out what new tools eBay is unveiling for antiques and collectibles buyers and sellers.
In addition, Connie attended the Collectibles Summit on Monday, which is for industry experts, newspaper personnel and others related to home décor as well as antiques and collectibles. It is a way for eBay to find out what people related to the collecting fields and home decor fields think about how eBay works and a way for those people to get information directly from some of the people at eBay such as Rob Chestnut, the head of Security and Trust issues.
Swaim has shared some of the information relayed by eBay’s Rob Chestnut. For instance, there are 2,000 people working in the Trust & Safety department around the world and there are 60 staff members who do nothing but work with law enforcement officials on a daily basis, as well as testifying in court cases. “We also get on airplanes and go to countries where there are problems and work with local law enforcement there,” Chestnut said. He added they had just gotten back from Romania last week and this was the team’s fifth trip there in a year.
