eBay scam auctions appearing on Brickset eBay section?

Ummm guys,
Is that listing of eBay auctions on the main page just picking random auctions?
Cause I hate to be paranoid but right now I see an auction for 200 dollar Death Stars in Hong Kong, which I am guessing is a scam auction... The sad thing is 57 people have bought from that guy already...
Not sure if there is a way you can filter these to eliminate any 'dubious' looking ones out there...
Just a thought...

    yeah, saw that same auction pop up on the main page yesterday as well.

    I just think it could send a bad message to some novices, that Brickset may be endorsing the auction (even though they clearly do not)
    But with people today, you never know....

    It's unfortunate if they are the scam lots but unfortunately theres no way to filter them out. Besides they would have been on the eBay tab of the death star page for some time anyway.
