Wire transfer is not an accepted payment method. if you find the item on eBay there should be an item number. it is a 12 digit number also there should be a buy it now button or if it's an auction you need to win it first. The item should be in your purchase history as a purchase that you won. If it's not on eBay then Stop paying for this item because it will certainly be a scam. Please do not pay, even with PayPal if you didn't find this item on eBay.

Hope this helps. Goodluck!

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.

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.

hello dominik,
please be careful. if you want to transact business via the internet and the terms are like that, dont just trust them that if they already received the item they will send you the money. don't ever believe people like that unless you'd be meeting in one place wherein you will give the object and the other person will hand over the money to you.

As i see to what you have told us here, this is clearly a scam.

Please be careful. Dont ever trust easily just like that. Follow your instincts.

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!

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

Dear David,
I think this is a fraud. Please don't pay him any money through wire transfer.
Pay pal has even got a chinese portal : https://www.paypal.com/c2/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=xpt/general/CNPayPalComparison-outside
Also the good thing about Pay Pal and similar services are you can stop the transfer within 7 days if you think it's fraud. However with wire transfer you can't do that. Considering this in mind. I think the offer from the Chinese guy is a fraud attempt.
There are plenty of options available from Amazon and Ebay; checkout the established trusted and rated sellers, look for at least 50 or more good ratings and then you can be sure that the account is credible. Buy only from rated and trusted sellers.
Best Regards. NextDoorNerd.

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.
