DOES EBAY HANDLE FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS FOR CRAIGS LIST


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.

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 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 have not received notice that my purchase has shipped


You will need to contact the seller for shipping info. See if they have a tracking number.

If you cannot get seller to respond or is evasive with you, go to PayPal website and click on the Resolution center and file a Dispute. Be prepared to document all communication with seller and attempts to resolve.

If you find this solution helpful, please click 'Accept' as that is how I get paid. Please feel free to add comments.

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!
