Ebay ScamsEye Spy Blog 2
eBay is a great place to find what you are looking for, as well as make money cleaning out your closet. However, the growing prevalence of Ebay Scams has turned it into a shady marketplace.
Sellers definitely deal with the bulk of all problems on eBay. It’s far too easy for scammers to hit sellers without much fear of repercussions, so if you want to stay safe, you can only rely on yourself.
Here are the most common Ebay Scams:
- Buyer Offers to Overpay: The buyer contacts you and offers to pay a lot more money than you’re asking for your item. They’ll send an empty cashier’s check or a phony personal check, neither of which will clear. But by then, you’ve already sent the item and it’s too late.
- Buyer Wants to Settle Outside eBay: If your listing is an auction, you may get a buyer who offers to pay an immediate amount as long as you close the listing and settle outside of eBay. You oblige. It seems like everything went fine, but soon they’ll complain to eBay that your item was defective or false or non-existent.
- Claiming You Mailed an Empty Box: The buyer purchases one of your listings as normal. You ship the item to the buyer as normal. When he receives the item, he opens an eBay dispute and claims that you sent him an empty box. eBay forces a return, the buyer ships back the empty box, and keeps the item that was inside.
Do you need to find out who the buyer is?
