Although eBay is still the best auction site in the Philippines, eBay is still in its infancy stage here and more safeguards must be implemented to protect its members. Every time I visit eBay’s discussion board, I’m disheartened to find threads, where eBay members ask for help or ranting about being scammed.
A few months back, I posted an entry about the 13 red flags of a fraudulent eBay transaction. Courtesy of eBay members jenny_lake and silverstrad, they listed down possible red flags that eBay members should know.
Now, there’s a new thread in eBay’s discussion board, courtesy of vigilant eBay members and spearheaded by hananim012. You will find a discussion of auction postings that are potentially fraudulent.
I encourage everyone to regularly visit the Scam Patrol thread to ensure that you are entering into a legitimate transaction. And if you see fraudulent listings in eBay, please do your part and share it with the rest of the eBay Ph community. Every voice counts.
