By 'case ID' do you actually mean VIN - vehicle identification number? If so, you can do that through several sites, one of them is: http://www.carfax.com/vin.cfx ,note that if you want to see full report you will have to pay. However, paying $15-20 can save you thousands you would spend on potential lemon and stress.

Is this a ligitimate transaction number? VPP Transaction Case ID 74T2AZ7QEZ2541


Looks like it could be a fraud. You need to talk to E-Bay directly about this. Here is a link to a simular incident:

First time with ebay the seller ask to transfer cash through western union to an ebay vehicle protection agent .. purchase invoice # 5848256697 case id 54G4B144Z4W44 can you tell me...


Hi there!
Do not continue with the transaction and don't send the payment. it can be a scam since ebay don't have agents to get payments from buyers. ebay is only a platform for you to use to buy and sell items and they don't care about the payments and they don't have ebay agents assigned to get the payments. send/forward the emails to spoof@ebay.com all the emails you got from this seller. Just checked the item number 110039713412 and it's not on ebay motors and it means that its not a legit ebay item.

hope this helps. Have a great day!

I have bought a Silver Cross twin dolls buggy, it was delivered, I was not in. Been to collect from Fedex and they have returned it. I have paid £29.99 for this toy and I can't find anyone to help. ...


HI there!
I just hope that it's not yet past 45 days since you paid for it.If not, you can file the item not receive case on eBay and here's how;

Here's how you can open an item not received case from My eBay:

1. Please sign in to your account and then please click the My eBay tab located on the upper right side of the page.
2. Then please click the Account tab and inside the Account Summary page please click the Resolution Center link on the left side.
3. Inside the Resolution Center Page, please click "I've not received my item" and please click continue.
4. You will need to enter the item number and please follow the next steps.


To open an Item Not Received (INR) claim through the "Contact Us" options:

1. Click the eBay Buyer Protection header or the "Contact Us" link displayed on the home page.
2. If you click "Item Not Received", the following page will review a list of your recently purchased items. Choose the item(s) that you need help with and click Continue.
3. eBay will ask if you've tried contacting the seller yet. If you choose "Yes", you will be prompted to open a claim online or call us.

If it's already past 45 days, you can no longer file a case on eBay but you can file it from IC3, well I guess that won't be much of help.
http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx
You can also check with the seller if they purchased tracking, if there is and you still haven't received it you need to contact the carrier and it could be lost in transition. If there's an insurance you can file a claim with the carrier.
Here's how you can request for the contact information of the seller:

1. Click the "Advanced Search" link at the top of most eBay pages.
2. Click the "Find Contact Information" link under "Members."
3. Enter the member's user ID (the user id of the seller) and item number.
4. Click the "Search" button.

Then you will get an email with the name and phone number of the seller. You can also use this to report to police if you feel that you need to sue the seller for not completing the binding contract.

Hope this helps! Have a great day!

Below is the ad from which I purchased hockey


If you paid through eBay with PayPal, follow the "Help", and start an eBay "Dispute Resolution" process, and follow-up with PayPal -- PayPal can "reverse" the payment that you made.

Did the seller give you a US Postal Service "tracking-number"? Have you "tracked" the shipment?

Is This a Legit Ebay VPP Case number??


you need to purchase the item on eBay using your eBay account. the item should register in your eBay account as a Won item. there should be an item number which is a 12 digit number. DO NOT purchase the item on craigslist or any other website. eBay do not have collection agents and do not have warehouses. if the seller will mention one, then it is a scam. the item/vehicle will only be covered by the VPP or vehicle protection program if the item was bought using your eBay account, eBay do not send invoices to buyers outside eBay messages, everything should be in the eBay inbox. if there is no item in your eBay account, please DO NOT pay the item. It is a scam.

hope this helps.

I received this email about payment for a car I'm interested in. Is it legitimate? Dear Casey Truitt, This eBay Vehicle Protection Program ( VPP ) Invoice was sent to you at the request of our eBay...


Do not continue the transaction and do not pay for this item. VPP only works if you purchase an item on eBay motors site. ask the seller for the eBay 12 digit item number so that you can check if this item is a legite listed item on eBay. Do not pay if you do not bid or won the item on eBay site. This is a spoof email. Please forward the messages you got from this seller to spoof@ebay.com so that eBay can investigate this for you

I purchased a malaysain human hair wig never received


since your seller is not responding, you need to file for the item not received dispute so that you can get your money back.

you can file the case using your eBay account or you can contact them so that an agent will help you file the case.

you can get eBay's phone number by using the link below:

http://www.ebayphonenumber.net/

just scroll down and you will see their phone number or you can use this:

http://inter800.com/cgi-bin/kwd800

just end the word ebay and press enter

Hi I need some info is there something called safe account on ebay, cause I am interested in buying a car , and the seller says that if I put the money in a safe account then he can ship me the car and if...


there are no SAFE ACCOUNTS ON eBay. You need to purchase the item using your eBay account so that you can be eligible of the vehicle protection program. there are also no eBay agent who collects the payment and there is also NO eBay WAREHOUSE. if these are visible to the deal that you are getting with the seller, i suggest that you need to report this seller by sending all the emails you from this seller to spoof@ebay.com and DO NOT CONTINUE THE TRANSACTION. always ask for the eBay user id and the 12 digit item number if you will purchase an item on eBay.

Happy New Year! Cheers!
