prevent myself from being scammed. ... I received a scam email the other week or so that wanted me to do a deal outside of eBay. I responded to their email to please buy the item accordingly. Now I just received an email from eBay that I was trying to do deals outside of ebay and I’m being charged applicable fees! I didn’t do this deal with them because I recognized it as a scam.
I responded and asked the other person to bid or buy out the item.
I trust that eBay will make this right and come up with a resolution that is fair.
