As Most people know from experience or just from other people. There have been an alarming number of scams when buying Cryptocurrency Hardware on eBay. The posting and descriptions and seller profile look real with lots of good reviews. The biggest cause of this is how easy it is for eBay accounts to be hacked. It’s important before buying hardware from eBay that you understand what the latest scam methods are. When looking at a listing, look at the seller and the Items the seller is selling. Most accounts selling other miscellaneous things that have no correlation within the crypto space are in fact scams. Another thing to look at is the reviews and the items that are reviewed going
back to the last point is that if the reviews aren’t on things that are crypto related then it’s most likely a scam. If they have reviews for items that are related to crypto from a while back and there is a positive review it is probably real. Another thing to look out for is that the person running the scam has a way of creating fake tracking numbers that work on the shipping companies website and it will eventually show as delivered to your house but no package will ever be received. I don’t know how they’re doing this, they might be paying someone that has hacked into these shipping carriers websites to create these tracking numbers. The problem is that when no package ever arrives then eBay wont give your money back because it says it was delivered. Also my friend bought a rx580 8gb on eBay and the same thing happened. He ordered something he was tracking its status and when It said it was delivered but there was no package. Then when he went to eBay to try to get his money back he was denied because it said that the package was delivered to his house. Right after that they banned his eBay account. Also keep in mind his account is over 3 years old and has bought multiple items on eBay previously and has never had any strikes on his account. He then had to go to PayPal to ask for his money; they couldn’t do anything because he had no proof that it wasn’t delivered. He then went to UPS and opened a dispute then after some investigating they came to the conclusion that the tracking number was fake and that there wasn’t even a truck out to deliver to my neighborhood that day. Then he contacted PayPal with the evidence from UPS and got his money back after over a month. End of story please be aware and don’t get scammed. Hope this helps some people when buying hardware from eBay.
-Make sure that the seller is selling other crypto related items or has in the past
-Has good reviews on the crypto items that were sold previously
-Doesn’t have a huge supply of miner being sold
-Seller doesn’t sell a bunch or random stuff
