With regard to your issue, first, the item must be listed in eBay's site. Second, you must win the item on eBay by Buy It Now or auction. If you're not the winning bidder, never ever pay for the item. If you're receiving emails claiming that they're an eBay seller, you can forward it to <a rel='nofollow' href=""></a> so it can be investigated. Also remember that legitimate eBay emails must be received both in your My Messages and registered email address.

I rec'd transaction email from Ebay Motors. Is payment via a prepaid eBay Gift Card a legitimate payment method? I just want to ensure that this is valid. Pls advise.

No it is not a valid way of payment. These scammers will use all sorts of ways to scam you out of money. I usually involves MoneyGram or Western Union.

I would say no to the deal, PayPal, credit card or nothing.

NO! Paypal works with eBay and eBay has a financial interest in Craigslist, but eBay does not handle financial transactions for Craigslist. I smell a SCAM! caveat emptor! just sayin.

I did buy the car corsa opel 1.7,ididnot receive and no refund.seller khamisibaako, agent frank monti of ebay uk

This is very dangerous what you have done. Ebay specifies to never take payments through western union. You may of been scammed. Contact your bank and stop payment if you feel the slightest uncomfortable about the transaction. Contact ebay immedietely by phone and ask them as well what procedure to follow. This sounds like a scam to me though as you explained it. You should always use PayPal for your account payment in a case like this. You need to work quickly as possible and save every bit of information possible. Phone records, email records everything should be documented.

Purchased this Diamond Slim 8GB Slim 1.8"LCD MP3/MP4 Radio FM Player on Ebay and then received it. Pretty much a piece of ****. No instruction manual. No idea how to upgrade firmware or load songs. ...

You are probably a victim of a scam. Its not a good idea to buy mp3 players off ebay or memory sticks. A lot of them are fake or scams. Especially don't buy ones with odd names like diamond etc.. Its safer to stick with brandnames you know such as sony, ipod, etc..
You can read more about mp3 player / memory stick scams on this ebay post.

If she is asking you to do anything through her private email and offsite it is probably a scam, and it is definitely against ebay policy. Report it.

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 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 just put a broken Hp pavilion laptop on ebay , the starting bid was 10$ ... i have been getting emails well above the asking price , such as 550$ & 900$ ! How do i know its not a scam or if the buyer...

Hi there!
First, I would suggest that you need to stick with your listing and report the emails to if you are getting the emails in your personal email account. But if the buyer is so sure to buy the item, you can then list the item as a buy it now for the price they wanted to pay for it. But if it feels too good to be true, I suggest not to continue and report it.
I hope this helps you out a bit. Have a great day!.
