It is against eBay policy to call ebay users unless there is a problem! I filed a complaint with FCC and Do Not Call!Afterwards this number called me again and her name was Stacy and she said she was calling "ON BEHALF OF EBAY" and when I told her that I reported the number she was calling from to ebay and FCC and Do Not Call, she hung up!People do not be fooled!! It is not a legit phone number! First they gain your trust with tips and then start getting into your personal info!

I had received a few calls from this number over an 8 day period, with no messages left. Finally, I was home when they called yesterday, and the man said he was from eBay, and he was giving me a courtesy call to tell me my account could be suspended for Duplicate listings. I asked him which of my accounts was in question, and he did name one of my accounts. I asked him for specific examples and he stated he could not provide that level of detail on this courtesy call. Long and short, I pressed him for answers and he hung up on me. I called ebay customer support, who stated this was not a legit number from eBay. But he queried the number and based his statement on this internet listing.Like other ebayers listed below, I HAVE received calls from this phone number in Utah call center before, advising me of new features and how to improve sales. eBay is not always the most forthright, honest or divulgent company. I have caught them on several occasions over the years providing, incorrect or false info. I believe it was eBay.

Actually, that's not true.  It's true if you have little to no volume of sales.  Ebay wouldn't waste their time and call a person who sells less than $1000 annually.  When I hardly sold anything, I got this call once or twice a year.  WHen my sales went to $250/month, I got it once a month. ��Now that I sell over $30,000 year, I get this call weekly.  If you notice, lately it is hard to contact eBay directly especially if you're not a powerseller, thru email.  They have reduced their customer reps who answer emails to.  If you're not a powerseller, you have to wait in long lines to get to a live person, and most ebayers can't wait 60-120 minutes to have a simple answer to a basic question.The explaination I was given from my powerseller rep (who also confirms this is a legit number and call) is that more than 90% of the issues and questions being sent it, the answers could be found in under 5 minutes of research using the Ebay Help system.  Sadly, unless you do a lot of volume in your sales, they make it hard to contact someone to help you.It is an Ebay call center in Utah.  I maynot be listed under "eBay" as the owner of the number, but by a company that eBay contracts to make calls on their behalf.  If you call HP support on the 800 number, your call isnt sent to anywhere near their HQ.  It used to send you to Canada 6 years ago.  Now most likely your call will be "Tom from Kansas City", but with a disctinct Indian accent.  It's a US number, but the call center is in India, so the actual location of hte call center is moot.  Have a MN phone number, but It's only takes 1 phonecall to get the calls forwarded to any number outside MN.  the location of the area code on the number is worthless info.Ebay's policy is not to hand out phone numbers to it's customers, unless it's absolutely needed, and then only for certain issues.  It's always the best advice to not answer a phone call if you don't know where it's from, but then again, you can always hang up.

Either way you look at this phone call we have been getting. The fact remains phone call solicitations are bad news these days. As my Bank, my Police Dept, My Ebay legit messages puts it: you simply do not give information over the phone and a knock at your door unless you are 100% certain who they are and what do they want. When a person on the other end of the phone calls me and asked my name I know they do not have it (well that is good advice to assume). Should this be a legit call ebay should change there business model. We have all had messages from ebay stating not to give information except on the ebay webpage and you know that is legit.

ebay is like any other major company...have you ever heard of outsourcing?  This is when  a company hires call centers to do their promoting for them.  Therefore they don't always do their own solicitations.  However, ebay also has a rep for their sellers.  The name of my ebay rep is Ron.  I am sure I am on several of their lists because I have received calls on various different things but there is not a single one that has asked me for any personal information, password, pin etc.  How is it a scam or fraud if they aren't asking for any personal information?  They'd have to get your information in order to do something...hhmmmm imagine that!!   It may be a nuisance to you that you are receiving a solicitation call or a customer service call (trying to assist you or inform you of ebay information) since you are a registered ebay user, but that doesn't constitute fraud or scam!!!  They have the right to call you because you came to them and asked to open an account, again...hhmmm imagine that!!  Any company that you have done business with in the past year has a legal right to contact you.  If you have done business with ebay in the past year they have a right to call you.  If you are a business there is no do not call list there are only do not call lists for residences.  Don't be so blindsighted by fear (of a phone call that you CAN hang up on) that you lose an opportunity to increase your ebay sales or a free listing day, or a number of things the call is trying to inform you of ...so silly to be an ostrich with your head in the ground - reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials....OMG EBay called you!!!!!!!....it's a scam, it's fruad---- omg you're the one calling me...let's burn them at the stake and call them scams and fraud for trying to build their business and yours.  seriously how ridiculous!!!!

Not true!  I've sold on eBay for 13 years and have been called several times by legitimate eBay employees to see if I was interested in selling tips, etc.  They have also called when they are running a special rate for certain listing features.  They don't call every seller, but they do call, particularly if you are a power seller.

This number is Ebay and when you call it it tells you they call to give information to members. There is no further action required if you receive a call from this number. For example they may call to give suggestions to their "Top Rated Sellers". I usually hang up on them even though I am such a seller.

Why would they call you to say a fraud case had been resolved instead of just sending you an email????  And it is possible that if your computer was violated in some way, someone might know about your fraud case.  But, if it really is resolved, why call, unless to gain your trust for the future.And, to the others who like these calls, why would eBay want to become a telemarketer like so many annoyance calls.  Do they think people like being called???I got one call a few days ago and no message left.

gaboy replies to KreationsByKat8 Feb 2012Ebay knows there' s lots of scams out there wright? why the not communicating this trough emails  like when let you know is time to pay your fees?-------...because everyone knows there are so many fewer email scams than phone scams, right?Do people even think before they post?-eBay calls their members, mostly sellers, and especially PowerSellers (like me).-if you are not getting calls, and are a PowerSeller, chances are you opted out (like, the first time they called you and you said "don't call me again" because you were paranoid that it was not really eBay)-this is the number that they have been calling from for several years-how would they know your eBay ID, name, AND phone number to call you and identify you by name and eBay ID?-i don't have to "prove" anything, when the burden of proof required is not that this is legitimate, but that it is not.  In other words, all you paranoid people should call the number back, or contact eBay (whereupon you will be given a PIN number and phone number to contact eBay with - it isn't public without a request so that it will not be constantly phished - a protection for YOU, so you don't get scammed).

I had been getting calls from an arizona number for a while now and I finally answered it last week. The guy on the other end of the line said he was from the Federal Government and he was offering me a $10,000.00 Grant. The great thing about this grant was that I didn't have to pay it back and that I wouldn't have to pay taxes on it. So, he attempted to verify my information and he asked me if Lori Hunt was my full name. And of course because in America most people have 3 names I became suspicious. He wasn't american, and he spoke very poor english. He kept trying to get me to agree with him by saying "OK Lori?" I would say no that isn't my name...and then he would ask me to tell him my full name...and I'm thinking you are the federal f'n government....you should know me only by my full f'n name. So, I say i am uncomfortable with this and that I would like him to mail me the info...so he asks me if an address from 2 years ago is my correct mailing address...I say no it's not and then he tries to get me to tell him my current address. I'm like no, I have been in correspondence with the IRS since 05 and they have my current address...so I said look, I'm not interested bubbye!!!Since then I have been getting calls at least 3 times a day. The phone number they call from goes nowhere. It doesn't ring at all. So I finally answer again and I'm angry and the same guy speaks to me as if I have never spoke to him before. I reiterated how I could not understand him and that I am not comfortable with this and that I would like to speak to someone else. So he puts on a guy with the same bad english and I tell him I want a phone number to call them and ask to speak to an american. He gives me his number to his desk...I tell him I don't want to speak to him. he says something under his breath in his own language and then continues his speech to try and get me to go along with this. So I say again that I am not interested and please stop calling me.....PLEASE STOP CALLING ME!!!!!A couple days go by and the calls start again. 8am 11am 2pm 6pm 8pmeveryday so I answer again...ARE YOU F***'N KIDDING ME??? ARE YOU SERIOUSLY CALLING ME AGAIN????? He hangs up.I make some phone calls to find out what I can about federal grants and I become fairly confident that this is fraud. So, They called again and a couple days ago and I answered and the same guy says "hello Lori" I say didn't I ask you to stop calling me? he starts his speech and I interupt him.."I told you to stop calling me" he gets quiet and changes his tone to a chilling voice and says "its not possible Lori" So, I say F*** You! and a couple other friendly cuss words and then he says " I want to have sex with you Lori" I saw red and went blank and hung up the phone!!!!So, to avoid anymore harrassing phone calls and subjecting myself to the sicko's that are behind those calls I have changed my phone number!!!If you are my friend and need my new number then let me know.I posted this bulletin to let my friends know why my number is no longer working and also to inform you about what I have gone through so you can be aware should they contact you.The numbers that came up on my caller ID were 623-238-6047 and 623-238-6067 The phone number to the guys desk is 1-991-065-0268 and he said his name was laurel wilson. Supposedly that number is in the UK.I contacted grants.com and they say that the only way they would be in contact with me regarding a federal grant is if I had applied for one. And that they would only offer me the one I applied for not a substitute and that they also would not harass me. The first guy told me it was his federal duty to offer me this and that it was for paying my taxes on time and being a hard working woman. So, if you feel like investigating....there you have it.

I got a message today from this number... I was at work and could not answer my cell phone (I only own a cell phone, no landline). After I got home from work I listened to the voicemail. A lady named Martha Jackson asked me to call some 866 number about collection of a debt for a business problem. I called the 866 number and got the message: "Due to technical difficulties your call cannot be answered at this time" and the call disconnected. The 866 number was 866-237-9324.

I receive lots of intrusive calls which leave no message.  Unless I fully identify the caller id., I never pick up the receiver before a message I consider serious is left.  Most often, these type of scams don´t leave any message; they just want you to tell them: "Yes, I am Mrs/Mr..."   Following that confirmation, I guess, they could procede to credit card frauds or who knows what, using your phone number and address, as it happened to me twice in a recent past.  If it was something serious, they would send you a letter instead of those intrusive phone calls.  Never give them the opportunity of a dialogue.

Finally, I was home when they called yesterday, and the man said he was from eBay, and he was giving me a courtesy call to tell me my account could be suspended for Duplicate listings. I asked him which of my accounts was in question, and he did name one of my accounts. I asked him for specific examples and he stated he could not provide that level of detail on this courtesy call. Long and short, I pressed him for answers and he hung up on me. I called ebay customer support, who stated this was not a legit number from eBay. But he queried the number and based his statement on this internet listing.Like other ebayers listed below, I HAVE received calls from this phone number in Utah call center before, advising me of new features and how to improve sales. eBay is not always the most forthright, honest or divulgent company.

Actually, that's not true.  It's true if you have little to no volume of sales.  Ebay wouldn't waste their time and call a person who sells less than $1000 annually.  When I hardly sold anything, I got this call once or twice a year.  WHen my sales went to $250/month, I got it once a month.  Now that I sell over $30,000 year, I get this call weekly.  If you notice, lately it is hard to contact eBay directly especially if you're not a powerseller, thru email.  They have reduced their customer reps who answer emails to.  If you're not a powerseller, you have to wait in long lines to get to a live person, and most ebayers can't wait 60-120 minutes to have a simple answer to a basic question.The explaination I was given from my powerseller rep (who also confirms this is a legit number and call) is that more than 90% of the issues and questions being sent it, the answers could be found in under 5 minutes of research using the Ebay Help system.  Sadly, unless you do a lot of volume in your sales, they make it hard to contact someone to help you.It is an Ebay call center in Utah.  I maynot be listed under "eBay" as the owner of the number, but by a company that eBay contracts to make calls on their behalf.  If you call HP support on the 800 number, your call isnt sent to anywhere near their HQ.  It used to send you to Canada 6 years ago.  Now most likely your call will be "Tom from Kansas City", but with a disctinct Indian accent.  It's a US number, but the call center is in India, so the actual location of hte call center is moot.  Have a MN phone number, but It's only takes 1 phonecall to get the calls forwarded to any number outside MN.  the location of the area code on the number is worthless info.Ebay's policy is not to hand out phone numbers to it's customers, unless it's absolutely needed, and then only for certain issues.  It's always the best advice to not answer a phone call if you don't know where it's from, but then again, you can always hang up.

Its eBay. not a scam. I have been an eBay seller for over ten years. They use this number for contacting  eBay users. I have never had a problem, about every three or four months they call me to advise of seller policy updates or to inform me that they are having an upcoming promotion. They always leave a voicemail, no scam, everyone is always polite and informative. Yes its probably a call center but its definitely eBay. If you are signed up on eBay or ever have been, they will probably call you every once and a while. Cheers!

Either way you look at this phone call we have been getting. The fact remains phone call solicitations are bad news these days. As my Bank, my Police Dept, My Ebay legit messages puts it: you simply do not give information over the phone and a knock at your door unless you are 100% certain who they are and what do they want. When a person on the other end of the phone calls me and asked my name I know they do not have it (well that is good advice to assume). Should this be a legit call ebay should change there business model. We have all had messages from ebay stating not to give information except on the ebay webpage and you know that is legit.

ebay is like any other major company...have you ever heard of outsourcing?  This is when  a company hires call centers to do their promoting for them.  Therefore they don't always do their own solicitations.  However, ebay also has a rep for their sellers.  The name of my ebay rep is Ron.  I am sure I am on several of their lists because I have received calls on various different things but there is not a single one that has asked me for any personal information, password, pin etc.  How is it a scam or fraud if they aren't asking for any personal information?  They'd have to get your information in order to do something...hhmmmm imagine that!!   It may be a nuisance to you that you are receiving a solicitation call or a customer service call (trying to assist you or inform you of ebay information) since you are a registered ebay user, but that doesn't constitute fraud or scam!!!  They have the right to call you because you came to them and asked to open an account, again...hhmmm imagine that!!  Any company that you have done business with in the past year has a legal right to contact you.  If you have done business with ebay in the past year they have a right to call you.  If you are a business there is no do not call list there are only do not call lists for residences.  Don't be so blindsighted by fear (of a phone call that you CAN hang up on) that you lose an opportunity to increase your ebay sales or a free listing day, or a number of things the call is trying to inform you of ...so silly to be an ostrich with your head in the ground - reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials....OMG EBay called you!!!!!!!....it's a scam, it's fruad---- omg you're the one calling me...let's burn them at the stake and call them scams and fraud for trying to build their business and yours.  seriously how ridiculous!!!!

I had received a few calls from this number over an 8 day period, with no messages left. Finally, I was home when they called yesterday, and the man said he was from eBay, and he was giving me a courtesy call to tell me my account could be suspended for Duplicate listings. I asked him which of my accounts was in question, and he did name one of my accounts. I asked him for specific examples and he stated he could not provide that level of detail on this courtesy call. Long and short, I pressed him for answers and he hung up on me. I called ebay customer support, who stated this was not a legit number from eBay. But he queried the number and based his statement on this internet listing.Like other ebayers listed below, I HAVE received calls from this phone number in Utah call center before, advising me of new features and how to improve sales. eBay is not always the most forthright, honest or divulgent company.

Actually, that's not true.  It's true if you have little to no volume of sales.  Ebay wouldn't waste their time and call a person who sells less than $1000 annually.  When I hardly sold anything, I got this call once or twice a year.  WHen my sales went to $250/month, I got it once a month.  Now that I sell over $30,000 year, I get this call weekly.  If you notice, lately it is hard to contact eBay directly especially if you're not a powerseller, thru email.  They have reduced their customer reps who answer emails to.  If you're not a powerseller, you have to wait in long lines to get to a live person, and most ebayers can't wait 60-120 minutes to have a simple answer to a basic question.The explaination I was given from my powerseller rep (who also confirms this is a legit number and call) is that more than 90% of the issues and questions being sent it, the answers could be found in under 5 minutes of research using the Ebay Help system.  Sadly, unless you do a lot of volume in your sales, they make it hard to contact someone to help you.It is an Ebay call center in Utah.  I maynot be listed under "eBay" as the owner of the number, but by a company that eBay contracts to make calls on their behalf.  If you call HP support on the 800 number, your call isnt sent to anywhere near their HQ.  It used to send you to Canada 6 years ago.  Now most likely your call will be "Tom from Kansas City", but with a disctinct Indian accent.  It's a US number, but the call center is in India, so the actual location of hte call center is moot.  Have a MN phone number, but It's only takes 1 phonecall to get the calls forwarded to any number outside MN.  the location of the area code on the number is worthless info.Ebay's policy is not to hand out phone numbers to it's customers, unless it's absolutely needed, and then only for certain issues.  It's always the best advice to not answer a phone call if you don't know where it's from, but then again, you can always hang up.

As my Bank, my Police Dept, My Ebay legit messages puts it: you simply do not give information over the phone and a knock at your door unless you are 100% certain who they are and what do they want. When a person on the other end of the phone calls me and asked my name I know they do not have it (well that is good advice to assume).

Not true!  I've sold on eBay for 13 years and have been called several times by legitimate eBay employees to see if I was interested in selling tips, etc.  They have also called when they are running a special rate for certain listing features.  They don't call every seller, but they do call, particularly if you are a power seller.

This number is Ebay and when you call it it tells you they call to give information to members. There is no further action required if you receive a call from this number. For example they may call to give suggestions to their "Top Rated Sellers". I usually hang up on them even though I am such a seller.

Why would they call you to say a fraud case had been resolved instead of just sending you an email????  And it is possible that if your computer was violated in some way, someone might know about your fraud case.  But, if it really is resolved, why call, unless to gain your trust for the future.And, to the others who like these calls, why would eBay want to become a telemarketer like so many annoyance calls.  Do they think people like being called???I got one call a few days ago and no message left.

gaboy replies to KreationsByKat8 Feb 2012Ebay knows there' s lots of scams out there wright? why the not communicating this trough emails  like when let you know is time to pay your fees?-------...because everyone knows there are so many fewer email scams than phone scams, right?Do people even think before they post?-eBay calls their members, mostly sellers, and especially PowerSellers (like me).-if you are not getting calls, and are a PowerSeller, chances are you opted out (like, the first time they called you and you said "don't call me again" because you were paranoid that it was not really eBay)-this is the number that they have been calling from for several years-how would they know your eBay ID, name, AND phone number to call you and identify you by name and eBay ID?-i don't have to "prove" anything, when the burden of proof required is not that this is legitimate, but that it is not.  In other words, all you paranoid people should call the number back, or contact eBay (whereupon you will be given a PIN number and phone number to contact eBay with - it isn't public without a request so that it will not be constantly phished - a protection for YOU, so you don't get scammed).

This number has been calling me several times a day, pretending to be ebay. I called eBay support twice and both reps told me that it was NOT legit ebay number and advised that I report it. It is against eBay policy to call ebay users unless there is a problem! I filed a complaint with FCC and Do Not Call!Afterwards this number called me again and her name was Stacy and she said she was calling "ON BEHALF OF EBAY" and when I told her that I reported the number she was calling from to ebay and FCC and Do Not Call, she hung up!People do not be fooled!! It is not a legit phone number! First they gain your trust with tips and then start getting into your personal info! Ebay never calls anyone, specially several times a day!!Yes, it does say how to change settings if you call it back, but I did not have those settings that way in the first place!!

I had received a few calls from this number over an 8 day period, with no messages left. Finally, I was home when they called yesterday, and the man said he was from eBay, and he was giving me a courtesy call to tell me my account could be suspended for Duplicate listings. I asked him which of my accounts was in question, and he did name one of my accounts. I asked him for specific examples and he stated he could not provide that level of detail on this courtesy call. Long and short, I pressed him for answers and he hung up on me. I called ebay customer support, who stated this was not a legit number from eBay. But he queried the number and based his statement on this internet listing.Like other ebayers listed below, I HAVE received calls from this phone number in Utah call center before, advising me of new features and how to improve sales. eBay is not always the most forthright, honest or divulgent company. I have caught them on several occasions over the years providing, incorrect or false info. I believe it was eBay.

Actually, that's not true.  It's true if you have little to no volume of sales.  Ebay wouldn't waste their time and call a person who sells less than $1000 annually.  When I hardly sold anything, I got this call once or twice a year.  WHen my sales went to $250/month, I got it once a month.  Now that I sell over $30,000 year, I get this call weekly.  If you notice, lately it is hard to contact eBay directly especially if you're not a powerseller, thru email.  They have reduced their customer reps who answer emails to.  If you're not a powerseller, you have to wait in long lines to get to a live person, and most ebayers can't wait 60-120 minutes to have a simple answer to a basic question.The explaination I was given from my powerseller rep (who also confirms this is a legit number and call) is that more than 90% of the issues and questions being sent it, the answers could be found in under 5 minutes of research using the Ebay Help system.  Sadly, unless you do a lot of volume in your sales, they make it hard to contact someone to help you.It is an Ebay call center in Utah.  I maynot be listed under "eBay" as the owner of the number, but by a company that eBay contracts to make calls on their behalf.  If you call HP support on the 800 number, your call isnt sent to anywhere near their HQ.  It used to send you to Canada 6 years ago.  Now most likely your call will be "Tom from Kansas City", but with a disctinct Indian accent.  It's a US number, but the call center is in India, so the actual location of hte call center is moot.  Have a MN phone number, but It's only takes 1 phonecall to get the calls forwarded to any number outside MN.  the location of the area code on the number is worthless info.Ebay's policy is not to hand out phone numbers to it's customers, unless it's absolutely needed, and then only for certain issues.  It's always the best advice to not answer a phone call if you don't know where it's from, but then again, you can always hang up.

Either way you look at this phone call we have been getting. The fact remains phone call solicitations are bad news these days. As my Bank, my Police Dept, My Ebay legit messages puts it: you simply do not give information over the phone and a knock at your door unless you are 100% certain who they are and what do they want. When a person on the other end of the phone calls me and asked my name I know they do not have it (well that is good advice to assume). Should this be a legit call ebay should change there business model. We have all had messages from ebay stating not to give information except on the ebay webpage and you know that is legit.

ebay is like any other major company...have you ever heard of outsourcing?  This is when  a company hires call centers to do their promoting for them.  Therefore they don't always do their own solicitations.  However, ebay also has a rep for their sellers.  The name of my ebay rep is Ron.  I am sure I am on several of their lists because I have received calls on various different things but there is not a single one that has asked me for any personal information, password, pin etc.  How is it a scam or fraud if they aren't asking for any personal information?  They'd have to get your information in order to do something...hhmmmm imagine that!!   It may be a nuisance to you that you are receiving a solicitation call or a customer service call (trying to assist you or inform you of ebay information) since you are a registered ebay user, but that doesn't constitute fraud or scam!!!  They have the right to call you because you came to them and asked to open an account, again...hhmmm imagine that!!  Any company that you have done business with in the past year has a legal right to contact you.  If you have done business with ebay in the past year they have a right to call you.  If you are a business there is no do not call list there are only do not call lists for residences.  Don't be so blindsighted by fear (of a phone call that you CAN hang up on) that you lose an opportunity to increase your ebay sales or a free listing day, or a number of things the call is trying to inform you of ...so silly to be an ostrich with your head in the ground - reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials....OMG EBay called you!!!!!!!....it's a scam, it's fruad---- omg you're the one calling me...let's burn them at the stake and call them scams and fraud for trying to build their business and yours.  seriously how ridiculous!!!!

I for one don't cower in fear but I stopped answering my phone years ago unless the Caller ID displays someone I know. Despite the fairly useless DO NOT CALL LIST, they just keep right on calling.

Do you cower in fear when the phone rings and you dont know the number? (its actually ebay people. for REAL) but heres an Idea folks, when you get a phone call, answer it, if you dont like what you hear, hang up. That simple. If you NEVER want to hear from them again, tell them to remove you from your list, and if they dont you will report them to that national call center thing. (My bad for not knowing what its called, nor having the patience to look it up after reading so many useless comments) But I think most of you know what i am talking about,. No offense of course......

I received a call from this number and did not answer.  EBAY has called me for legitimate reasons in the past that were not problem related. They wanted to explain new marketing tools available to sellers.

Yes they do. They call if there's a problem or if there's a promotion, or a new policy that you need to know about. Dimwit.

It is a ligitimate number and is from ebay. I have sold on ebay for several years and I am in the whole with them about 4 grand due to a mess up on my end.

That actually is not true, eBay does lots of outgoing calls. The number is eligimate, you can ask something about your account or request them to send you a message and it will appear in your My messages. The scammers cannot do that.

gaboy replies to KreationsByKat8 Feb 2012Ebay knows there' s lots of scams out there wright? why the not communicating this trough emails  like when let you know is time to pay your fees?-------...because everyone knows there are so many fewer email scams than phone scams, right?Do people even think before they post?-eBay calls their members, mostly sellers, and especially PowerSellers (like me).-if you are not getting calls, and are a PowerSeller, chances are you opted out (like, the first time they called you and you said "don't call me again" because you were paranoid that it was not really eBay)-this is the number that they have been calling from for several years-how would they know your eBay ID, name, AND phone number to call you and identify you by name and eBay ID?-i don't have to "prove" anything, when the burden of proof required is not that this is legitimate, but that it is not.  In other words, all you paranoid people should call the number back, or contact eBay (whereupon you will be given a PIN number and phone number to contact eBay with - it isn't public without a request so that it will not be constantly phished - a protection for YOU, so you don't get scammed).

I have been an eBay seller for over ten years. They use this number for cotacting any eBay user. I have never had a problem, but about every three ot four months, they call me to advise of seller policy updates or to inform me that they are having an upcoming promotion.

I got a call today that left a message about ebay...however i do have an ebay store.  i did just reach my power seller level a few days ago and on my sellers page it tells me i need to call to discuss increasing my selling limits, etc.This is not a scam.  The reason it is not a scam is because it is not asking you for any information.  The message was just informative, letting me know of specials for ebay stores on listing prices etc.  Everything directed me to ebay.com (my ebay or manage my store).  Nothing asked me to call anyone or what my credit card info was or anything about my sales figures...just told me to go to ebay.com and look under selling tools and a couple other things.  Also there actually IS a real number to contact ebay.  It took awhile to find it but I found it under resolve an issue.  Don't know if you can find it if you don't have an active item or not.  I have called ebay and talked to them in December and they also help with paypal.  (I had an issue with a refund that had not been paid) Of course you have to verify yourself to ebay for your account.  If you want to call ebay they have a phone number but you have to contact them online first to get a pin code and that pin number is only good for 15 mins.  Always best to be cautious though...soo many scams out there but this one is actually legit.
