Ebay Aus serial scammer

I usually scan eBay Australia for watches and report the frequent counterfeits put up for sale.

But over the past couple of months I have been seeing a huge rise in the number of fakes. Moreover, some appear to be linked to a serial scammer. Multiple accounts from various locations around Australia, all with less than 30 transactions. They all have the same sentence in the description:

Condition is Pre-Owned. Sent with Australia Post Pre-Paid Parcel Post Satchel 500g.
