Scam alert: ACMA warns of eBay scam phone calls | ACMA
The scammers generally use a recorded message to claim you have made a purchase and they need to charge your account. They are trying to gain access to your personal information.
eBay does not ask its customers to disclose or verify sensitive or personal information over the phone. If you receive a suspicious call, hang up immediately. If in doubt, hang up and contact eBay through its website.
