cold robo-call from ebay
Ohio
 Sep 23rd, 2014
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.

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 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.....

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.

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.

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!

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!!

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.
