Actually, if paid for through Paypal there is a certain amount of protection. I'm no fan of Ebay, profit is no.1 on their agenda. The punters don't even register on their scale.

From a skim-read, it looks like paypal protection isn't worth shit. Read below...


Search Results

Will PayPal Buyer Protection cover all eBay categories?

eBay Motors parts and accessories will be covered, however, motor vehicles (cars, boats, planes), Live Auctions and the Mature Audiences category will not be covered. Sellers cannot indicate PayPal as a payment method during the Live Auctions or the Mature Audiences category listing process and therefore those listings will not be eligible. More...

My positive feedback is greater than 98%. Why am I not eligible for PayPal Buyer Protection?

The calculation for this purpose includes feedback from repeat users, and therefore may be higher than the unique positive feedback percentage displayed on eBay. To determine your feedback percentage go to the Feedback Received tab located in your eBay member profile and divide all positive feedback received by the total feedback received. More...

Do I have to file a PayPal Buyer Protection claim within a certain timeframe?

Yes. step-by-step guide More...

What is Seller Protection?

PayPal is committed to protecting our sellers against fraudulent chargebacks by buyers. For World Sellers, if the seller follows the established PayPal Seller Protection Policy guidelines, including sending goods to a US buyer at a Confirmed Address, then PayPal will protect the seller. More...

What if someone files a buyer protection claim against me?

We will investigate the buyer protection claim and contact you if we need any further information. More...

Nosser, maybe one of us should contact Ebay. They should pull the listing,eventually. Guy's on these marine type forums tend to spot the outboard type scams, but how many other types of scam are going on on Ebay? Ebay must be very adept at keeping it all quiet.

I tried that the last time this happened. They ignored it for over a week and nearly 20 reports-until I found a fone number and rang them-and even that took several hours.

By that time the guy had sent rather convincing phishing emails to nearly 20 people and so on and so forth.
