How to report an eBay Scam

Seeing as eBay don't exactly make this easy to do Rolling Eyes I thought it was worth putting up a note on how to do this.

On the item page for the fraudulent listing, scroll to the bottom and click the "Report this item" link:



On the page that appears, select "Fraudulent listings (....)":



Select "You suspect a listing is fraudulent (you didn't bid)":



Click the "Continue" button as instructed:



On the next page, click the oh-so-obvious "Email us" link to actually report the item:



Type something in the bottom box:



Click the "Send" button



You may now feel a warm glow inside until you realise eBay will probably just ignore your report Evil or Very Mad Like this site? Buy some RRSPORT goodies to show your support!

England 2006 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Zermatt Silver

That's great thanks Martin, I recently had the need to report a scam advert after seeing my own bike (1973 Honda CB500 Four) for sale 2 months after I bought it. the advert and pic were exeactly the same as the posting I bid on and eventually won.
I emailed the vendor and requested the pic be removed and the ad re=worded. Ad must have been removed as it disapeared. i did report it to eBay but not a straightforward process

Cheers
Ian Also Honda CB500 Four K2 (1973)
