I am sorry, but I agree. Why would they have to create a stealth to get a refund? Unless there is more, this sounds too far fetched.

Default Re: Question for the experts

Like I said they bought the item. I'm not sure if eb has funds for this type of activity.

After purchase from one of my stealth A they copy and paste the purchase email and sent it to another stealth account B ( old ) already restricted.


"Hey can you cancel my order. " Stealth B

Stealth B hasn't sold in over a year. How else would they get stealth B email address to write this message.

I believe they are trying to make me admit to a connection.

They wouldn't go to this extreme to trick you in admitting that you own an account. They would need to pay a whole department of employees to trick people

It makes no sense, if they think there is a link they simply suspend your account, they do not need any proof

Ebay is the judge and Jury, so there is no need for them to gather evidence, if they feel there is risk they cut it out no questions asked

If you haven't sold for over a year then your listings do get removed, they dont exist forever..

and its highly unlikely they will email you direct to your email address, rather than ebay itself..

You are very vague with this 'whole story' what is the reason for this??

A few years back someone sold something to an ebay employee and they were told that they had to be told by law that they worked for ebay. So if that is true then no they can't and why would they as pointed out above they have no qualms about kicking the innocent.

More likely an old customer or competitor that know who you are, which raises bigger issues that you are not protecting yourself enough from observation.

Why are you avoiding questions from people on the thread asking you to explain wtf you are talking about?

People wont take you seriously, if you refuse to be serious.

I dont think you get it.

yes they are not sending ebay messages because the listing was removed.

they are emailing me.

EMAILING OLD STEALTH. About a purchase on NEW STEALTH.

They are actually paying MONEY and then asking for a refund via email to the wrong stealth acct.

This may be a scam; I've seen something like it myself, but not for a long time.

Either your data or the 'buyers' information was compromised at some point, or their accounts have been hijacked.

Eventually the scammer may request you to refund to a pp account that belongs to them instead of the original purchase.

Or there will be some other explanation.

The 'secret EB agent' scenario is a little TOO paranoid... they're not capable of correctly doing the simplest things, much less something complicated.
