Fencing of stolen goods (is this "fraud"?) occurs on Ebay. I can't judge the relative prominence of the fraud-prevention pages on Alibaba vs Ebay, but I think any site that becomes successful is going to attract criminals. Ebay so far defends itself as being only a "message board" and is not responsible for the content of the auctions it provides. I suppose Alibaba is in a different legal position if it actually collects big $ fees for membership.
