How to Avoid eBay Scams and Fraud

Countless people have been scammed and defrauded on eBay. eBay is a fun place to bid on items and to sell items – but you must know how to recognize a scam, and how to avoid them, them or you quickly join the ranks of those who have lost their money to eBay scams. Of course, if you are scammed, there are some actions you can take the correct the situation – but in many cases, the scammer does indeed get away! The best option is to avoid being scammed.

You can easily avoid many scams with the payment method that you use – whether you are a buyer or a seller. eBay owns Paypal, and in most cases, Paypal is the payment method you should use. First, as a buyer, if you are scammed or less than satisfied with the item when it arrives, you can dispute the charge easily, and demand a refund. The seller must reply and show proof that the item was shipped, and that it arrived in the condition that you expected, or Paypal will return your funds to your account.

As a seller, you can protect yourself by only accepting Paypal. This will eliminate the chances of receiving a bad check or having the buyer dispute a credit card charge. Instead, they must dispute the charge through paypal, and you of course will be able to prove that you shipped the product. You cannot, however, prove that the product arrived in the condition that was expected. In this case, you should demand that the product be returned to you before the refund is issued.

Another common scam that buyers use is the bidding scam. This type of scam is run either with two separate eBay accounts – with one person in control of both of them, or with two friends with separate eBay accounts. A very small bid is placed on your item, using one account. This is followed by
a very high bid, from the other eBay account. Right before the bidding ends, the high bid is cancelled or withdrawn, leaving the low bid as the winning bid. This bid can only be avoided by setting a reserve price – the lowest bid that can be placed is the same as the reserve price that you set.

If you are an eBay seller, you can further protect your auctions by placing a notice on your auctions page, declaring that you have the right to back out of the sale if you suspect potential fraud. As both a buyer and a seller, also beware of spoofed emails. These emails appear to be from eBay. The email may claim that you need to verify your information, and ask you to login to your eBay account, using the link provided. If you follow that link, the site looks exactly like eBay, but it is actually a scam to get your eBay login details, as well as your credit card details! eBay will never ask you to do this. If you suspect a spoofed email, report it to eBay immediately!

Don’t let scammers ruin your eBay fun! Just use good common sense, and a reasonable amount of caution, and everything should run smoothly. Report suspicious activity to eBay, and if a deal doesn’t feel right, simply back away from it and move on to the next auction.

 

How To Prevent Fraud On Ebay! - Four Signs To Watch For

Of the millions of transactions that transpire on eBay each day, only an infinitesimally small percentage are fraudulent. However, even that small percentage means that fraud does still occur. How do you, as a seller, avoid becoming the victim of a scam? By recognizing common signs of fraud:

1. “Phishing” expeditions. According to eBay guru Skip McGath (http://SkipMcGrath.com), “phishers” send out mass emails, posing as eBay, or any company, and asking the recipient to con...

Of the millions of transactions that transpire on eBay each day, only an infinitesimally small percentage are fraudulent. However, even that small percentage means that fraud does still occur. How do you, as a seller, avoid becoming the victim of a scam? By recognizing common signs of fraud:

1. “Phishing” expeditions. According to eBay guru Skip McGath (http://SkipMcGrath.com), “phishers” send out mass emails, posing as eBay, or any company, and asking the recipient to confirm their password, which they use to hijack their account.

• Advises McGrath, “Any email that’s really from eBay will be on your My eBay page under your My Messages, NOT in your inbox.”

• Always log into eBay—or any password protected site—by going to the site from your favorites bar, or by typing in the URL yourself. Never log in on a page you opened through an email link! No matter how authentic the page looks, there’s a good chance you’ve been redirected to a phony site.

2. Unauthorized suppliers. You need to verify your suppliers—not everyone that claims to be selling wholesale products is legitimate.

• If someone claims to be selling you wholesale items, but doesn’t require your Tax ID number, they’re not legitimate.

• If you see a drop ship site with name brand logos plastered everywhere, they’re very likely NOT an authorized dealer—accounts with large brand companies are extremely difficult to establish, and the logos are copyrighted material.

• If you’re using a new supplier, start out with a very small order to test their service and examine their products. If you find they’re fakes, you’ve learned your lesson at a minimal cost.

3. Counterfeit cashier’s checks and money orders. Be particularly careful with international buyers who need you to send an expensive item to an “agent” along with an exorbitant fee.

• Before you send out a buyer’s item, or forward any “agent’s fees” from their check, take that check to your bank and have them call the issuing bank and verify the check is good. If it’s not, you’ve saved yourself a lot of money. And if they tell you it’s good and turn out to be wrong, you aren’t the one taking the loss.

4. Sites or auctions that don’t accept PayPal or credit cards.

• PayPal performs very thorough background checks and is committed to going after perpetrators of fraud, and credit cards let you file charge backs.

• If a supplier insists on being paid with a cashier’s check or money order, that may be an indicator that they’re not a good product source.

Don’t let a few dishonest people scare you off of eBay altogether. There are plenty of genuine suppliers there, and not every user is trying to cheat you. You just need to be aware of what’s out there, and proceed with caution. The vast majority of transactions that happen on eBay are completely above board: it’s one of the safest e-commerce platforms around. Assures McGrath, “You can buy $10,000 Breitling watches on eBay that are perfectly legitimate. Just take those steps, and make sure you know who you’re buying from.”

 

Ebay – Part Time Or Full? How To Decide.

Going full-time as an eBay seller is living the dream: making a real income, working from home, being your own boss and all the rest of it. It’s the promise of a million scams, and it’s finally come true – at least for some.

What they don’t tell you in the success stories, though, is that becoming a full-time eBay seller is by no means for everyone. You really, really ought to try it part-time before you even consider taking it up full-time, and even then, caution is advis...

Going full-time as an eBay seller is living the dream: making a real income, working from home, being your own boss and all the rest of it. It’s the promise of a million scams, and it’s finally come true – at least for some.

What they don’t tell you in the success stories, though, is that becoming a full-time eBay seller is by no means for everyone. You really, really ought to try it part-time before you even consider taking it up full-time, and even then, caution is advisable. Before you burn your suit, here’s a list of questions you should ask yourself.

How Much Do I Earn From eBay Now?

Work out how many hours a week you spend doing eBay-related things (be honest here), and divide it by the average amount of profit you make in a week. If you were doing full-time hours, would you earn as much as you earn now?

Do I Have a Good Job?

Think about what you might lose if you give up your job to focus on eBay. If you’re in a well-paid job with good promotion prospects then it’s well worth reconsidering: you might get a few years down the line and wish you’d stayed in your traditional job, as you’d probably be the CEO by now.

Would I Really Make Much More Money?

Unless you’re selling a large quantity of small goods, most of what you do on eBay will be waiting for auctions to end – and you can wait at work just as easily as you can at home. This is why whether you would make more money on eBay really depends on what kinds of items you’re selling – for low value items, going full-time could be a good move. For high-value ones, the chances are you’ll hit the limits of how much money you have to invest in inventory long before you hit the limits on your time.

Is my Home a Good Place to Work?

Quite apart from anything else, you might find that the dream of home working is more of a nightmare in reality. People can start to depend on you to get things done that need to be done during the day. If you have a wife and children then they can resent the fact that you’re in the house but refuse to have anything to do with them for large parts of the day. Giving in to any of these things and stopping work for a while will cause your profits to fall.

Can I Survive if it All Goes Wrong?

In the end, would you be able to get by if you had a month or two where you sold literally nothing? Or would you be desperately looking around for a job and cursing the day you ever discovered eBay? That’s the real test.

If you made it through all these questions, then I guess you’re cut out for the eBay life – and even if you didn’t, you’d be surprised just how far you can get part-time. In our next email, we’ll show you how to think like the eBay elite: the PowerSellers.
