I have been scammed by Stephen Michael

  • Monetary Loss: $500
The buyer contacted me via ebay on behalf of an item I was selling. He sent me emails stating that the money had been placed on hold through his bank until I provide a tracking number of the item. I did ship out the item, but I couldn't provide a tracking number. I called paypal and read all of the emails, including the one I got in my spam box, and they verified that it was a scam. This is money and valuables that I have lost.

Almost scammed in Golf Cart by Kellie Bennett

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I inquired into a golf cart offered for sale on EBay...I thought the response seemed sketchy, so I looked up the name...SCAMMER!!! The response was as follows:
Hi, my name is Kellie,
I'm asking $1,300 for the 2013 Ezgo TXT 2X2 48 Volt Blue golf cart - Electric Street Legal. You might be inclined to think that there are issues with it, but that's not the case. The truth is that my husband died two months ago - he had a stroke at work. The cart is in a really good shape with no damage history. Not aware of any issues with the Golf Cart (i.e., starts/runs like it should).
Me along with my daughter decided to sell the house and so we moved to my sister in Omaha,NE trying to start a new life. I want to use eBay's services for the safety of both of us so if you're interested in purchasing this golf cart just email me with your full name, address including the zip code and phone number, so I can notify eBay that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
I am waiting for your reply.

God Bless you and your family!

Regards, Kellie Bennett

I have been scammed by Nam Tseng

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I contacted the seller on e-bay (selling a refrigerator)
I made an offer and when his auction was ready to close he said he would need more money. I told him that if I bid the minimum bid he'd be responsible for selling to me at that price and he cancelled the auction. Then relisted for more money (now that he knew I was planning on buying) Listed for more money and shipping (way more than it was worth, but I wanted the unit) I bid on the item. Auction closed and he kept trying to get more money (said that he now needed more for shipping even though he put it in the auction and I called and the shipping quotes were more than enough to be covered in his original "shipping price" tried to contact me and get more money. Complete scammer, always finds another reason to just get a little more money, or some crazy hardship, and then if you say you won't give him any more he pulls the auction so he can try to get some other sucker. Do not deal with this guy. 100% scammer Immoral, dishonest and plays the victim. When you're giving him a little more money he's super nice. When you question his scam he gets angry. NEVER DEAL WITH THIS GUY 100% criminal.

Buddy almost got scammed by this complete noob

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I do social media marketing and a friend of mine sent me an e-bay deal w/mails that he thought was too good to be true and of course it was. Text of image embedded in E-bay ad was

"I'm ready to sell it right away for the price of $2500 Please contact me before you BID because I want to explain you my terms and condition. My E-MAIL address is: [email protected] THE ITEM IS FOR SALE AT THE PRICE OF $2500 For any question regarding the item or shipping info contact me only at the above mentioned email. Please do not bid until you reach because I'm not sure if can send iyem for free at your location. THIS ITEM IS READY FOR BUY IT NOW"

The spelling and grammar of this illiterate alone should have been a tipoff. This guy is so BAD at being a scammer, it's really kind of sad and pathetic. (must be some REALLY stupid foreign guy)

I added and item I want to sell on Ebay website. A few hours later I got a text message telling me she was interested in the purchase, and to send her my bank details via email.

I did so and a few hours later she (?) was sending fake banking emails confirmations, stating I must pay 500USD in order to be able to receive the full amount (plus 500) I asked for my item.
