My friend had 1 in post for £10 and it did not work she called up eBay their helpine is on the eBay pages,they said they get back to her about it,she not herad back yet.
I had 1 sent to me within eBay messages just £15 off anything and worked ok.
I suggest phoning them.

The email address of your account needs to match the email address within your Paypal too.

yes it was official, all ebay etc. went into my ebay email. It was a £75 spend but I was buying something at £169, so I don't understand why its not working. Also when I clicked on the link it came up as its own unique page for T&Cs which I thought was strange so maybe it was given to many people and it was a case of first come first servered

yep its both the same i double checked. Not sure if I want to call them, the phone bill has came to enough this month (Hoh, virgin are charging me £75 this time.. What a joke)

Maybe Ebay have caught onto this 'scamming' lark. Send out a bunch of fakey vouchers to get people to spend via their site then refuse to honour them leaving the buyer in a mess.......

Is that REALLY so unbelievable?

Wouldn't surprise me. Who else having bother? I be asking around anybody else I know who uses eBay and had voucher.
I'd been annoyed if my voucher not working and I'd not gone ahead and purchased cos I could probably got the same item less postage elsewhere.
