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

Buying item from canada but will have ebay as a third party


If you're going to buy an item from Canada, first, the item must be listed in eBay to make the transaction legitimate. Only pay for the item using PayPal, Moneybookers, Propay, Paymate or credit card through the seller's marchant credit card account. If the seller is asking you to pay for it using wire transfer or money order, better cancel the transaction because it is a possible scam. If you pay using those 2 payment methods, you'll not be covered by eBay's Buyer Protection Program. I hope that this will help you with your transaction. Also, all legitimate emails from eBay should be received both in your My Messages and registered email address. If you don't have a copy of it in your My Messages, better forward it to spoof@ebay.com

Transaction #65B4T138L3W13 We have been in contact with a Maria Portela regarding the purchase of her truck, that she claims to be selling thru ebay but the payment is requested to Western Union? Plus a...


eBay do not condone the use of Western Union or similar payments. I was able to save a friend $10k last year when he almost made a similar purchase. When he showed me the emails they all talked about an escrow company holding the money, but the last one asked for the money to go through WU to Italy, not to an escrow company at all.

It might sound a good deal but consider how good it will look when you've paid the money and got nothing in return. My friend thought he was getting a high quality campervan. We found the vehicle online (same plates) in a legitimate ad - the eBay "seller" had lifted the details from the genuine ad.

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 just got a good deal on a 2006 bmw from judith marshall.She tells me to pay through e bay.Do you have an agent victoria garcia 6390w sahara ave naples florida 34108


there are no ebay agents who collect money or hold the money for the buyers. if you found this item outside ebay, most probably craigslist and the seller will tell you about vehicle protection program and ebay agents getting the money, this is a scam. the vehicle protection program only works if you purchase the item directly from the ebay site using your ebay account. you need to have the 12 digit item number to verify if the item is a legit item from ebay. if you received emails from the seller outside the ebay messaging system, it is best to forward those to the investigation team of ebay so that they can check it for you. you can forward those emails to spoof@ebay.com and please do not send payment yet. if the seller will also tells you that the item is in an ebay warehouse, you need to back off and cancel this transaction immediately and do not provide any informationl. there is NO ebay warehouse and ebay agents are not allowed to get payments from the buyers..

hope this helps... please rate... thanks!!

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!

I want to buy a motorcycle from a person who listed it at buy and sell but she want the transaction to go through ebay vehicle protection plan is this legit?


if the item is not purchased directly from ebay then it is not a legit transaction.. to be able to be eligible for the VPP or the vehicle protection program, it is necessary to purchase the item on ebay. if the item is listed outside ebay and the seller is telling you that it is an ebay item with vehicle protection and the money will go to an ebay agent then dont continue the transaction since it is clearly a SCAM. do not share any information to this seller and report it to ebay by forwaring all emails to spoof@ebay.com

do not continue the transaction if the item is not listed on ebay, you need to ask the seller for the 12 digit ebay number so that you can purchase the item on ebay and not on another website or not directly from the seller.


hope this helps... please rate! thanks!

by the way, if the seller tells you that the item is in an ebay warehouse, there is no such thing as ebay warehouse... thanks!

Dont know how it works


The only manner that is secure and protects you the buyers is to purchase the car through the eBay motors auction listing. You will have the option of paying via Paypal, Check, Money Order, etc.

The eBay Motors Vehicle Purchase Protection (VPP) program provides protection of up to $50,000 against certain losses associated with some types of fraud. You are automatically enrolled in the program at no charge when you complete the purchase of an eligible vehicle on the eBay Motors site (motors.ebay.com).

Participation in the VPP program is subject to the following eligibility requirements:

You have successfully completed the purchase of a vehicle* priced at more than $100 from one of the following categories on the eBay Site:
    • Car and Truck
    • Motorcycle
    • Go Kart, Scooter, and Moped
    • ATV
    • Personal Water Craft
    • Snowmobile
    • Boat
    • Bus
    • Commercial Truck
    • RV or Camper
    • Race Car (not street legal)
    • Trailer (non-RV)
    • Dune Buggy / Sand Rail

    Note:
    * You will be deemed to have successfully completed the purchase if you receive confirmation in your "My eBay" that you have successfully won, or purchased, an item through an auction, Buy It Now, or Best Offer.

    Your eBay account, and the account of the seller, had an eBay Site feedback rating of zero or above as of the listing's end date and your account is in good standing (i.e. not suspended) at the time the reimbursement request is filed.
  1. You have not filed a VPP reimbursement request in the last 6 months.

    You, the seller, the vehicle, and the financial institutions on which payment was drawn, and to which payment was made, must have been located in one of the fifty United States or Canada on the listing's end date.
  2. You obtain the VPP Administrator's prior written consent before altering, repairing, selling, or releasing possession of, the vehicle before a determination is made on your Reimbursement Request.

    You are able to provide the VPP Administrator with documentation to substantiate all purchase payments, and/or estimates for repair, related to your reimbursement request within 14 days of filing your reimbursement request.
  3. You comply with the filing deadline and requests from the VPP Administrator (regardless of any shipping delays you experience).
