eBay Called You, Was It Really Them?

I received a phone call the other day from an 801 area code, I normally do not answer these calls, but I was doing some business with a company and thought it may be them, so I answered.

The person on the other end identified themselves as eBay, and was with the promotional department.

They were offering 50% off final value fees for sellers who were inactive as an incentive to start selling again.

"Inactive?" I asked. "You must be calling the wrong person because I have been active for 14 years!"  They said it must have been a glitch because they get a report of all inactive sellers for last several months.


They were very nice, and wanted to make sure I got the email, and to make sure I clicked the link to activate the offer.  I said thank you for the info, and hung up.

I then called eBay back to ask about my account being on the inactive list, and told them about the call from the promotions department.  After a few short minutes of talking to the "Real eBay" I quickly realized it was a scam phone call!!

Earlier I did a blog post on "How To Spot Fake eBay Emails" well now not only are they sending fake emails, the scammers are calling!

In this video, I will share with you how to know IMMEDIATELY if you are really talking to ebay!



Here is the phone number and the email address of the scammers!  Be sure to block this number and add the email as spam.

Scammers phone number: 1(801)545-1800

Scammers email address: eBay@reply1.ebay.com

If you do receive a fake eBay email, always forward that email to: spoof@ebay.com.


Did This Help You? If so, I would greatly appreciate it if you commented below and shared on Facebook.

P.S...Would you be open to exploring another avenue of making income part time, and work directly with me?  I will send you a cool video to watch, enter info here

  1. Actually, this is a legitimate eBay phone number. It's odd that they called you though.
