Wanted to give info about the ebay partner network affiliate program. Did seem like a legitimate call, ebay does a few of these per year. I personally don't enjoy being called about information that could be sent in an email, but it doesn't seem like a scam.

It's eBay offering their monthly promotion. It's not a scam. If you go to your eBay messages, the same deal will be there. Plus, they don't ask you for anything and say to go to eBay to take advantage of the offer. Be careful when you accept the deal because the Amazon drone is in your back yard!
Phone rang twice and call ended. No message was left. I have over 600 numbers on my caller id, so when a number pops up that is NOT in my phone I immediately become suspicious.
I GOT A CALL AND THEY STATED THEY WERE FROM EBAY. STATING I GOT ALSO AN EMAIL. I HAVENT WORK WITH EBAY IN MONTHS AND I ALSO DIDNT GET AN EMAIL. SHADY.
i don't even have ebay why would they call me? no i won't give you my scam!
Got this call on my mobile from an Indian lady so immediately suspect it is a scam. She said she is from eBay and is your pass “I love my phone” I said no and she said it is registered to your phone number. I then said I don’t give information over the phone she would have to email me. She hung up
This has got to be a scam if it is not, eBay has a big problem with the way they do business
If anyone at eBay is reading this you are alienating you customers
i don't believe its really e-bay. i called my phone provider and permently blocked their number.
I am guessing that it's a phisher / scammer; Someone with a PBX (small business exchange) can apparently set those up to report any caller ID info they want, so I don't think it's eBay, especially with it having been "Wells Fargo" - so I'd think it's someone phishing for your personal information.
I received 2 calls from this number today, they left a message the second time which I obviously listened to. It's Ebay, they were calling to remind me I had an unfinished listing - that is all. It wasn't a scam, nobody was looking for personal or account information. Hopefully they won't call me again to tell me something I already know.

Called at suppertime..(I hate that) Said she represented E-Bay and had some VERY Valuable info for me about how to get PayPal funds released faster if I had a few minutes to talK. I said thank you but I had already read the info on the web site. She then began pressing that she had VERY Valable Info. I said No thank you and again she pushed that she had VERY Valuable info. I am inclined to follow another persons coment here...If this is really E-Bay, then my dealings with them are OVER...Period. I wanted to use the site to sell my items not open myself up for Harrassing calls.....
It's eBay, calling to explain their policies on PayPal and getting your funds from selling more quickly.

Has called about 15 times and left one message about selling on ebay. Will not stop calling
I didn't answer/checked voicemail message & you could clearly hear typing noises in the background. They didn't leave a message.
I received a message from this number posing as Ebay that a case file had been opened against me and to see my Resolution Center within 7 days. It then hung up. I contacted Ebay by phone through their Customer Support and they reported to me that this is NOT and Ebay phone number. It is a scam of some sort.

seems like someone from ebay calling to let you know of there recent changes. weird though, why not send an email or read your ebay messages?
Unknown - did not leave message
Yes, I got a call from this number and it really is Ebay. I am a seller and they were calling to give me information about the changes that are happening later this month. They left a message because I was busy reading through the comments here instead of answering the call.
It was an E-bay automated message
I have nothing to do with ebay - scam. The cell carrier is selling your cell number to marketers.

a recorded message from eBay explaining the new rates coming in July
They called my cell phone (weird). A woman called and didn't even know my name. Was talking about selling on ebay and boost my sales, talked about auction and fixed listing prices. (bunch of basic information that all users already knew.) Was polite and nice, but useless information. I don't know if she is trying to make me say certain words, but I kinda of questioned her on the phone. She quickly said thank you and hung up on me. Just don't share your information over the phone, if they are really ebay, they should already know about you.
eBay knows my real name, the caller did not....SCAM !
It was a valid business call from eBay. It was a recorded message that I had to take action on.
I did recently have dealings with ebay that went poorly. Seller kept harassing me for a negative review that he deserved. The caller id/ call blocking app on my smart phone said it was a spam call and forwarded it to voicemail, which was not left. If it is ebay, this last purchase will my final one if they want to keep harassing me over a bad rating!
Woman left message with my user id and informed me about changes to EBay shipping fees and that some of my listings would need to be changes if applicable. that was all.
It was eBay calling to explain new listing rules and requirements. I did not answer and they left a detailed message.I does sound very much like a 'scripted' call center that was hired to do this sort of thing for companies willing to pay for their services.
PROBABLY EBAY BUT MY ACCOUNT IS SUSPENDED SO I DID NOT ANSWER CAUSE I DIDNT KNOW THE NUMBER
This is someone trying to scam ebay users.
Have no enough cash to buy a car? You should not worry, just because that's available to receive the loans to solve such problems. Thus get a sba loan to buy everything you need.

I missed the call, but they left a message. It was e-Bay talking about their new policies coming up.
Ebay - a buyer has a problem and they are calling to alert me of the matter and to login and resolve it.
Ebay .. gave me money and now they want it back!.. fu

eBay will call you for certain reasons. Some are dealing with billing, trust and safety issues and other times it is a promotional or information type call. You can go into your eBay preferences and opt out of receiving these types of calls. The eBay User agreement requires that you have a valid phone number on file so that we may contact you in matters that are associated with non-sales type issues.
Of course you should always use common sense when talking with anyone on the phone. eBay employees will NEVER ask for your password or credit card information in an email or in a phone call - EVER. PERIOD. We already can see your account and do not ever need that information to help you. We offer a variety of helpful tips and services that can help you grow your business should you chose to hear our advice.
This number is real. Just call it back and you'll hear our message. Call any number in the range and you'll actually reach a live rep sometimes... if you get lucky, you might just get me! =]

I am a 10 year eBay employee. All eBay employees in the (801) area code of Salt Lake City have numbers ranging from 545-1801 to 545-2700.
When an employee calls outbound the system masks their direct extension behind the (801) 545-1800 number. If you call 801-545-1888
, you'll get a company number.
It's real people, calm down...
Cheri Jolley Feb 09th, 2010
Got a call from this number on Jan. 5th, 2010 at around 2 p.m. Caller I.D. shows this from Ebay Inc. I don't believe the call was really from them.
Yep, it was eBay customer service; just a courtesy call
It really was eBay customer service and they were calling for a good reason and were very polite and courteous. Feel free to return their call on the number they leave on your voicemail.
It's eBay's customer service
Karina from ebay called to tell me about these new and exciting changes forthcomin on 6/15, and that I might have to make some adjustments to my selling preferences. Oh boy, more changes at ebay.
ebay called again today. changed my preferences so i do not get any more of these nuisance calls.
Ebay called to offer a special promotional listing fee for seller's who had a high DSR ranking.
They left me a voicemail trying to encourage me to sell Globally with eBay.
They say they are from Ebay...but who knows.
received on 11/11/2008 at 10:23am...Caller left message promoting ebay and seller tools.
This a an eBay marketing/customer relations call center, most calls from this number are to eBay members who are "Power Sellers," alerting them to special promotions and service upgrade offers.
Left no message, no caller ID.
none left-they called at app 6:oo am-west coast time-no message-
other than my caller ID brought up"Ebay Inc."
Not Fraud, they leave you a voicemail with this link to get more information: http://pages.ebay.com/globaltrade/ telling you how you can enhance your sales through global trade. Didn't ask me to call them back, just go to that ebay-related website.
Just ignore the call. Nothing to worry about.
Caller was from eBay and wanted to "encourage" me to sell globally.
Called, never left message. No caller id info displayed.
Missed Call. But 801-545-1800 left a Message. About "How to" Increase sales on ebay. 100% Scam! Must Report!
i got this today - it was a man - hard to understand giving advice on how to ship faster which scared me becuase we had something on ebay and sold and shipped it out and now i wondered if they people complained on the shipping time. but now i know it was a spam call. glad this site is here - i changed my preferences on ebay to not want calls at home. weird thing is - i never put my phone# on the preferences page so it is scary that becuase they have a cc they have EVERYTHING.
Same thing Here she says she is ebay.
Ebay called (live person) to say something about a training online under announcements.
Received a call today from this number...let it go to voicemail and the message they left was that this is Ebay calling UserID (was correct) about changes in the contribution options. Apparently there is a workshop or call-in posted on Ebay for this. I think it is legit but I would be very careful about giving out any info.
Lady identified herself as being from EBAY. Said she wanted to talk to me about the new changes to the feedback ratings.

FRAUD ALERT! BEWARE!
This is a telephone number used for supposed eBay marketing calls which DO NOT originate from eBay! I have a friend who works at eBay who has told me that they NEVER make marketing calls. Correspondence is purely online through eBay.com.
The voicemail left on my cell phone went like this:
"Hi, my name is ... and I'm calling in reference to [your eBay User id here]. I just wanted to let you know that eBay is making changes to it's trading assistant program. You must create new profile by February 11, 2008 in order to remain in the directory. Please go to: ebaytradingassistant.com. Thank you for using eBay."
A legitimate eBay web page should have ebay.com/ in the web address. The address provided above does not originate from eBay. If you do a simple Google search for "eBay trading assistant", this URL does not appear as one of the top sites!
You can also double check by logging into your eBay account, searching for "trading assistant" and making a note of the URL from there.
FRAUD ALERT Feb 04th, 2008
FYI there are eBay offices in the Salt Lake Area, Sandy City to be exact. If they are trying to scam you... I dunno. But I have seen their building right off of Interstate 15 at the south end of the SL Valley. It happens to say eBay right on it in big neon signage. Hmm.
I received the same phone call from 801-545-1800 saying that it was eBay. They left me a voice message saying that since I haven't listed anything lately to please go onto eBay and resubmit a new username. I contacted eBay about this. they said that they NEVER call anyone at anytime. All of their support is thru email or online support. They told me to report it to the FCC b/c it sounds like someone is trying to get my information. Report it to eBay and to the FCC, PLEASE!!!!!
My wife took a call from someone who IDed themselves as being from eBay. They told her I would know what it was about. This follows a trick eMail which I received through the eBay system. Maybe the two incidents are related. I don't think anyone should call the number, unless maybe it would be the law!!
Received a call from this number. They stated they were from ebay, however ebay did not show up on the caller id. It showed up as \"unknown\".
I just got a call from this number. It's eBay: http://www.sitelead.com/blog/801-545-1800/2007/11/05

Called about %33 of listing fees and ebay store holiday stuff. Sounded official on voicemail, mentioned my user ID however not my first or last name which I would expect to verify they are real. didn't ask for any info or for me to do anything.
A lady told me that someone used my eBay ID to sell an item on eBay.
No message left. If this was a valid call from eBay then they would have left a message.
This was eBay calling to invite me to open an eBay store. I guess they had my number because I am already an eBay Seller.
Woman called stating she was from ebay and wanted to tell me about opening an ebay store.

ebay - best seller practices message from a live person
it was ebay trying to get you to open an ebay store
It IS Ebay. When your account gets the warning that you need to entire a new 4 digit code, this is the number that calls you to give you the new code to enter in. I have received calls from them many times, and i assure you it IS 100% Ebay. If you need proof i can provide that also.
got a call from this number again!!! And a woman says she's rebecca and blah blah blah...can someone do something about this?
ebay seller Jun 22nd, 2007
I get calls from eBay once a month. However, this time the man with a New Dehli Indian accent asked my name. I simply stated, "this is he". He then proceded to read a bunch of crap that everyone already knows. He then asked how many employees I had and if I want long term customers. I replied "doesn't everyone". He kept trying to get me to say "Yes". I finally hung up. This call was a scam. They want to cut and paste your words to answer questions they will make up later. I later got an email from Chinas development team. A TRUE SCAM.

Got a phone call from this number, I picked up and noone talked.
This is the second time this has happened.
Although several people claim this number is ebay, I ran across several pages with a Google search that claim this caller is part of a scam to get user information. Apparently the caller asks for passwords and other information, which eBay says they never do. NEVER GIVE OUT SENSITIVE INFORMATION OVER THE PHONE!!!
This was on my answering machine when I got home. A woman said she was calking on behalf of Ebay for user ID called IDC or soemthing like that. She hung up once she realized she was talking to a machine.
Ebay calling about new selling options. Tell them you don't have time and they'll email the information (they already have the email address on file).
