Another ebay problem

Hi its me agian...

I purchased an apple mac this afternoon, I was a bit hesitatnt to start with so i didnt pay immediately. I requested some pictures of the macbook with a copy of todays newspaper and there ebay signin next to it, which the seller has still not responded to. I didnt notice till now but i have also received an email from checkout @e-bay.com
Which i dont think is actually an ebay address. Can anyone confirm this for me?

Nope, doesn't look like it is - although it does forward to ebay.com....

Maybe it's worth contacting eBay to tell them of a possible fraud?

By the way, although you linked to your email message, we are obviously not able to read it since it's obviously for your login only, and we don't have your username and password (and just to clarify, you obviously shouldn't tell us the login either).

I don't understand. That link went to:-University of Westminster.
What is the item number? You can send it to my email address if you want:-
[EMAIL="[email protected]"][email protected][/EMAIL]
I have to pop out for a while, but I'll be back later on tonight.

I dont want to put you off ebay or anything but ive had bad experiences on it. Well more like Paypal but hey. Ebay is good but just be careful. I recently got done over so take the time to contact the guy and get comfortable.

Good luck

You are dead right. :thumbsup:

This is a scam. I've been pm'ing the OP and the seller claims that ebay are 'holding' the Laptop for him. Hehehehehehe:giggle: :giggle: :giggle:

It's a shame about the amount of people who feel they have to scam others out of their money :-(

At least posting about issues with fraudsters on here makes all HUKDers more aware of what goes on. We'd all be fairly blind to it otherwise.

Indeed, though there are still plenty of people who don't know about this place but could do with knowing!

Whenever you recieve an email from eBay, it should always be in your 'Messages' in 'My Ebay'. If it ain't there, delete from your inbox! :thumbsup:

I won an item last monday and payed through paypal immediately... There wasn't anything left in paypal so it put the request through to my bank... The money left my bank account on friday and the item has disappeared from my paypal page but nothing has happened at ebay... How long do these things usually take?
