Do not respond to the sender (through the eBay system or your email provider) if this message is an offer to buy or sell an item. This type of offer is against eBay policy, may be fraudulent, and is not covered by buyer protection programs.

Second Chance Offer emails with the subject of “Message from eBay Member” are fake. Real Second Chance Offers come directly from eBay and appear in My Messages with a blue background and subject stating, “eBay Second Chance Offer for Item...".

Never pay for your eBay item using instant cash wire transfer services through Western Union or MoneyGram. These payment methods are unsafe when paying someone you don’t know.
