I am safe but the unresolved issue is that the phony seller has a phony eBay website yo complete the scam. They are still Phishing as I write this.

GetHuman-captez's Report a Seller issue with eBay from September 2020

Help with my eBay issue
The issue in GetHuman-captez's own words
Purchase a camp trailer in Colorado and receive it in California. ... Some one is using eBay to run a phishing scam. The way in which they are using eBay is to pretend that eBay will be a secure way to do a transaction. I am the would be buyer and the seller is trying to sell a camper trailer that is in Colorado to me in California. The camp trailer showed up on Facebook. When I contacted the seller they said that we should use eBay because they would provide security for the transaction. the Fraud against eBay is that they have a phony eBay webpage that looks very good complete with a call back number. they sent me a me an invoice order number with instructions on how to send my complete name and address so the trailer could be delivered.the scam is that they wanted me to buy eBay gift cards and send the numbers to the phony eBay location where they would hold the money as security until I signed off on the transaction. I called the phone number to find out more and the answering service directed my call to a place where I was put on hold I got tired of waiting and hung up. within ** seconds a man called saying he was from eBay. and gave me the reasons why we would use the gift cards instead of PayPal or etc. I am not an eBay user or very familiar at all with the Facebook and other things like that. I would think that because they are using a phony eBay website and using the eBay good name to further their evil intentions you might want to know about it. I can send you all of the emails going back to the first one on ** Sept. and the last one on ** Sept. at five thirty. if you wish to follow up on this and I hope that you do please let me know by email or phone. ***-***-****. Thanks.
This Phishing activity continues today.
Like I said I'm safe but this ongoing Phishing can only be stopped by eBay.
I am not a customer really because I have never bought anything from eBay. I am a good customer because I am reporting this and will probably use eBay in the future.
I'm done but I hope eBay would follow thru before the next person believes the phony eBay website.
How GetHuman-captez fixed the problem
Don"t buy and give the numbers off the giftcards. I just stopped communicating with the supposed seller. I just noticed they are still on Facebook but now they have * trailers for sell. The FBI or someone like that should do a STING.
