Hi guys, I really need help here.
I applied for a Job through indeed about making quick money from ebay and I fell into it,
I was careless as I am a student who is 18.
the buyer will email me the items and all about it and I will list it on Ebay,
he said that I will get a share of it if everything was fine,
OK this is what he said
Thank you for applying for my job.
Let me tell you more about it...
I need someone who can list my items on eBay. You'll be listing authentic products.…
I will provide you photos and details of the items that needs to be advertised.
Your job is just to list the ads.
I will talk with the interested people.
I will pay you when the auction ends.
There are 2 possibilities:
1. If the item is sold:
YOU'LL RECEIVE £100 + eBay POSTING FEES + 5% OF THE SELLING PRICE
2. If the item doesn't sell:
YOU'LL RECEIVE the eBay POSTING FEES ( but, I'm sure that the item will sell )
Maybe you wonder, why I am not selling the products myself ?
I wanted to start an eBay account but I read on one of eBay's community pages that sellers with 0 feedback have not the same success as the others sellers with feedback.
Also you must have an eBay Seller Account with more than 7 feedback.
We are located in Edinburgh, United Kingdom ....
You'll receive the payment from buyers into your PayPal account, which is linked to your eBay account, and deduct your payment from there + 5% of the selling price + eBay fees.
In this way is clear that you'll get your payment.
Your PayPal account must not have any limits (sending, receiving and withdraw).
If you have any limits on your PayPal account you must lift them up.
You'll earn £400 + per week with just one item...i think that this is fair enough.
Also i want to tell you from the beginning that i need serious peoples in my team so when you say something so be it. I look forward in hearing from you soon.
Continuing from this
I thought it was good and everything buyers will SEND ME THE MONEY THROUGH PAYPAL
AND 3 WEEKS LATER THEY'd DISPUTE A CLAIM SAYING that they have not received the goods,
from that moment I was scared
I didn't know what was going on,
I email the seller which he said he sent the product and everything even the shipping but it was ALL FAKE.
When the buyers paid I will take the money out from paypal and send it to him...
and since one buyer disputed a good,
now I cant get hold of the seller he is disappeared leaving me with negative balance of -£4,000 BECAUSE I HAVE SENT HIM MONEY AND HE RAN AWAY WITH IT
I didn't know what to do I was in panic as I am only 18.
I reported this to the police that I have been a victim of Fraud
and they gave the crime reference number,
I emailed paypal about 100 times about what happened to my account
and gave them my CRIME reference number
they said ITS NOT VALID THE POLICE ARE GOING TO DO NOTHING?
I can't pay
I dont work I just study,
I eve rang them and told them I have been a victim of a fraud
and they still did not take it saying that they will get a debt collector if I don't pay,
I dont undertand, the fraud team and police are investigating
and I cant pay that amount I dont have it and Paypal are so mean and scary
the women shouted at me and pushed me to pay and call her BACK
which I won't until the investigation is done I don't want to be involved .
I dont want to have bad name!!
what would happen if the police do nothing?
I can't go to prison its not my fault,
please SOMEONE HELP ME IM CRYING
