Almost Got Scammed at Ebay!

I just want to share this to anyone who is an Ebay user and/or those who actually are bidding and buying items on eBay.

I wrote the whole post (Ebay Scam) on my other blog – I am Root – Blog but basically, what happened was:

  • Our camcorder was stolen.
  • Search the same item on ebay
  • Bid on an item
  • (got outbidded.. :)
  • since I still got 4 more days, I let it go… will super bid on the last few minutes…
  • Got an email from someone claiming that he’s the seller and asking my last price (he said we can negotiate the price)
  • Ignored the email
  • Got another email the next day from someone else. Again claiming that he’s the seller. Again asking my best bid.
  • Send an email to the real seller, he said the email is a fake!

So guys, please beware of this latest scam that is (probably) spreading on eBay… hmm… I wonder if the management of Ebay knows about this?

    Thanks for the info. Such scam is too prevalent in the internet nowadays.

    Did they email you outside eBay? As an eBay seller for two years, my suggestion is not to transact outside eBay. You did the right thing contacting the seller directly.
