There are scams everywhere. If you follow eBay, you know they have changed their motives over the past few years. They no longer stand behind their sellers, they put all of their efforts behind their buyers. A SCAM came to my attention recently. There are buyers who are searching for people who sell Amazon Gift Codes. Not gift cards, gift codes you receive in your email. They will buy the gift code on eBay, receive the code and then claim somebody stole their account. These scammers will put a claim through both eBay and Paypal. They will win the claim every time because they know that eBay will always stand behind and stand up for the buyer.
Good customer service leaves openings for SCAMS. eBay wants to have good customer service because they want to continue to make money. The problem is many sellers are beginning to catch on and going elsewhere with their goods. Whey sell for a place that no longer treats seller and buyer with equality? There is a new prejudice growing in the online auction business. The cause of this prejudice is the bottom line. Before you decide to sell on eBay, you must be aware that they will not stand behind you if there is a problem. I have sold on eBay for years and I am more aware of what is going on because I have no room for losing money to SCAMS. Beware of SCAMs on eBay.
