    Scam using fake ebay, lost $800 😰

    Trying purchse on ebay for iphone, read the seller, ask to confirm for zipcode shipping. Got a okay responce after two days of contemplating I decided to purchase it but products were sold.. I email the seller and told her that I missed out if she still purchasing.. I will let her know.. she offered for an invoice through ebay and told me legis messages on how to follow directions to purchase it through ebay. I got an invoice but never receive it in my ebay acct. Receive it in my personal acct with logo from ebay. I clicke the ebay live chat representative and told me to purchase a gift cards for payment but will put it on hold. Obviously i went through it trusting they will send a pirchase confirmation on my ebay acct.. after almost 48 hours passed I never got the confirmation.. i went back to ebay live and ask them if they legit they told me i was contacting customer support but when i ask the phone number.. they blocked me..the invoive email was ebay@gift-card.com 😰. I paid it through my paypal, hoping to get it back after filing a dispute but I feel like i lost hope.. i screenshot everything from ebay fake represntative to the seller SUSAN TURNER susanstore2008@gmail.com
    I felt like I got sick right away.. first time and it was a chunk of money lost 😓😓😥😥😭

    Oh wow...I feel sorry for you...It really sucks, but don`t give up, the money come and go away so just keep living and it will be a good lesson for you!
    My friend almost got tricked by the scammers but after he finds this article, he figures out how to avoid the unpleasant situation and luckily everything ended happily. But the moral of my story is be always attentive!

    That's not eBay.

    That's a whole different website.
    gift-card.com

    http://www.gift-card.com/feed_upload;
    How it works

    Gift-card.com allows online retailers to list the products they sell in our vertical comparison shopping search engine. When shoppers search for the products you sell, your product listings appear in our search results. If a shopper clicks on your listing, they are linked to your online store. It's as easy as that!
    Basically, its a price search engine like google.com/shopping, pricegrabber.com, and nextag.com.

    These websites don't actually sell anything. They just allow you to compare prices and products and then link you to the merchants website.

    So it would appear that you made your purchase at some other website.

    For filing a dispute;
    paypal.com/us/selfhelp/article/i-didn%27t-receive-the-item-i-purchased-or-it%27s-different-from-the-description.

    In this case you would file with PayPal and NOT eBay.

    Also;
    ebay.com/securitycenter/report_concern;
    If you're suspicious about an email that claims to be from eBay, sign in to My eBay and click the Messages tab. If you don't see the same message there, the email is fake. To report a fake email, forward it as an attachment to spoof@ebay.com.

    So is the "Honey" app legitimate, or also a scam?

    Ummm, Bruce.
    What does this have to do with this thread?
    No one has posted anything about any apps at all in this thread except for you.

    I had come to TopResume via an offer to critique my resume. Upon reading the review, I agreed with the ‘problems’ or areas of improvement and decided to purchase the mid-level resume writing package (resume and cover letter). If you would like to find info about “topresume review", welcome to Scamfighter.

    I am really sorry for your loss. In most cases, make sure you purchase using authorized and credible online merchants like PayPal so that in case the deal goes wrong, you can always request for refund. For example, when making purchase on https://www.essaycyber.com/ , Clients pay via PayPal and that is definitely safe.
