Fake Payment Instructions email

Description

If you are purchasing a vehicle from a site other than eBay and receive an email with payment instructions that involve eBay as an intermediary, you are being scammed. eBay Motors will never send you a payment invoice or guarantee your purchase. Any emails from eBay can be verified through your My Messages inbox in My eBay.

Example A

Email addresses claiming to be from eBay such as "aw-confirm@ebay.com", "secondchanceoffer@buyerprotection-e-bay.com" or "checkout@ebay-motors.com" are fraudulent. Remember to check your My Messages inbox in My eBay any time you get an email from eBay to ensure that it is legitimate.

Example B

This fake invoice attempts to misrepresent eBay Motors as an agent for the fraudster's transaction. Please be aware that eBay will never send you a payment invoice or be involved in your payment process, especially if it is coming from a non-eBay site.
