Pet Peeve - Obscure Banks

Okay, I know I've done a lot of rants lately but here's another one. I have been enjoying my time reacquainting myself with Ebay, but this particular thing sticks in my craw. (What the hell is a craw anyway?)

I hate it when you buy something from an Ebay seller and they have the logo that says "Bank Deposit Express", then when you have bought something from this person, and can't get out of it (because that would be a backsliding scumbag thing to do!)...

...and you click on the "Bank Deposit Express" logo and it proudly displays:

"BANK OF ABU DHABI" or some similarly obscure bank. I mean, what the hell is wrong with the Commonwealth, ANZ or National Australia Bank? Why does it have to be "CHICKEN FEEDERS CREDIT UNION" or "WEST AUSTRALIAN DRAGONSLAYERS CONFERENCE MEMBERS BANK"

...so then you spend ages trying to look up branches of these bizarre banks and find out that the closest one will take you a 2 hour drive to get there. What is the point I ask you?

So. Unfortunately you can't tell which bank the seller belongs to until after the purchase, I will definitely remember the sellers who bank with the "CANBERRA STILT WALKERS BANK" and similar crimes against humanity for next time.
