Update: 21:30 BST
It looks like there was a problem with eBay, specifically accessing the Seller Hub for a few hours this afternoon. It seems that the problem was intermittent and not universal and has since passed.

      @ Liutauras

      ebay protect you for an item not received. Simply open an item not received case. The seller will be asked to provide tracking within 8 days. Generally, if he fails to provide evidence that the item has been delivered you will get a full refund. If the seller is not responding through ebay messages to your enquiry i would open the case immediately. Do not leave it too late as there is a time limit.

      However, we are a bit off topic here………..

    Hi I got Scammed today my eBay account will be uplifted 30-60 days!! A guy called Daniel Sutton who seemed very genuine who wanted someone to list his item for him so I did just followed along the crooked road. I had to do all kinds of settings to my Email account and adding filters etc to link mine and his together. This “Daniel” guy had then sent me the details and attached photos relevant to the “CAR” I thought I would be listing for him. But at the the of the day I had a email coming from eBay informing my eBay account is locked… fuck me

    @Jack no offence but you deserve it. Why would you ever trust someone like that and sell products you never seen on someone else’s behalf? especially a car!

      I agree with James. Why did you not see that coming? Although I cant see the “scam” other than someone wanted your account closed? ebay track linked accounts. if your account is linked with someone else who has been kicked off site then you will be at least suspended while ebay look into the connection.

    Never accept/apply for an eBay job anywhere unless it’s working for eBay themselves. They are everywhere but just the same people advertising them changing there names from time to time but the the same BS stories.
