eBay Scam List E Thru Z / warning! new crime schemes on ebay!

1 United States Review updated:

Con Artists are breaking into ebay accounts by stealing passwords and listing hundreds of phony items in them every day!
According to FBI / IC3 reports on the latest auction fraud schemes, the culprits are usually in cyber cafes, half a world away.

They love to lure shoppers with ridiculously low prices. When you read the listings, however, they always request you write them privately to discuss a "buy-it-now" price (this is an obvious sign of a western union con). There is never a real "buy-it-now" ebay button to purchase the item in the listing.

Often, once you write them privately, you'll receive a phony "buy-it-now" EMAIL LINK that takes you to their own scam webserver. If you click on it, they will try to collect passwords, account info, etc. and rob you. At the very least, they will keep your passwords to hijack your ebay account and fill it with phony auctions.

After emailing a scammer, I received half a dozen phony emails like this: "You've just sent a payment to (blah blah) Click here to cancel the transaction." or "You've received an UNPAID ITEM STRIKE for (some weird item)" and last but not least: "Buyer Complaint: You never shipped (another weird item) I'm reporting you to the local police! " (Clicking on Item No. sends you to scam website). There was even a phony link to report the mail to ebay security!

I changed the email address in my ebay account, so that any fraud ebay mail came to the wrong address. When you are using paypal and ebay frequently, it's dangerous to be opening mail that looks authentic, trying to convince you that you've sent payments to weird people for weird things!
Forward any suspicious ebay mail to spoof@ebay.com!

The bottom line on scams...If a seller seems to be begging you to email privately, it is probably a stolen account. Scammers have to request western unions in private emails, because ebay blocks it in listings. Using ebay's "Ask Seller a Question" link also alerts the real account owner to fraudulant activity.

How to protect your passwords & accounts:

If you get an email or pop-up message that asks for personal or financial information, do not reply. And don’t click on the link in the message, either. Use anti-virus software and a firewall, and keep them up to date. Check for an "https" website before typing in ebay & paypal passwords. (the s is for "secure") Go to the security options in your web browser and have it alert you when entering an unsecure site. Make a habit of manually typing in the ebay & paypal addresses, never use a link. Don’t email personal or financial information. Email is not a secure method of transmitting personal information. Be cautious about opening any attachment or downloading any files from emails you receive. Never email a scammer, they may keep your address to send phony password stealing links!

What to watch for:

Watch out for private e-mail request in auctions (a scammer doesn't want you to use "ask seller a question" link -it's not their account), private auctions, (hides bidders so we can't warn them), broken english, item location not matching seller's location (to avoid local pick ups), a "buy now" offer is mentioned, but no ebay buy-it-now button (this is a lure to a western union request), item listed in wrong category (scammers try to "hide" from scam warnings), and 1 or 2 day auctions for expensive item (quick sale before discovered by the account owner). Please arm yourself with information against cyber crime...read my guide "Scams! Phony Auction Alert! and search ebay guides for other Scam Warnings! This "e thru z" list warning is condensed in order to reach people shopping for the items listed below!)

Here is one day's greedy collection of current SCAM AUCTIONS: (e thru z)
Be careful if you are shopping for any of these items!

    E-Bay Instructions CD - Never received but billed!
    United States

    My 70-year old husband has been hospitalized 3 times since November. I had ordered the E-Bay CD to learn how to utilize the website in October. I never received the CD but have been billed monthly since October the sums of $9.95 and $49.95. I have just had a chance to catch up on my bills and reviewed them carefully. I called the 866 number and made sure it was cancelled. I was informed that I accepted the contract by clicking an I accept block, but at this time I don't remember it. I thought E-bay was E-bay and didn't realize it was a scam. I accept that it is my fault to a degree for not watching the billing but sure could use a refund of all the charges since last year to go towards my husband's medical bills and medicines. I was given a corporate office phone number to contact on Monday to see about a refund. I will do that on 5/14/2007. Thank you.

    EBay is rife with fraudulent listings, to date I have discovered at least 6 new ones every day in the Generator category as well as White goods..
    It goes like this.
    The generator (or fridge) "brand new" is listed at roughly $1000 less than the same item from a reputable seller, with free postage, the listing description has been plagiarized from a reputable seller. The seller has never sold anything before & suddenly has got a brand new unused generator for sale with a convincing description.
    The Ebay a/c has either been hacked or created legitimately & does have a "pay now" button.
    I believe this is a fake or stolen credit card laundering scam, if you "buy now" & are lucky you might get the goods as the seller will use a fake or stolen credit card to buy from a reputable seller & send the goods, or not!
    The loser is the Reputable seller.
