She’s supposedly a flight attendant too busy to deal with selling her 2009 Acura in person so she “made arrangements with eBay to handle the transaction.” I received an email supposedly from eBay with further instructions and a fake customer service number. And she requires payment in the form of eBay gift cards.

She was selling a 2009 Acura via Facebook Marketplace but said she made arrangements with eBay to handle the transaction. I received some supposed invoice and further instructions from “eBay” requesting payment in the form of eBay gift cards. I called the eBay customer service number she provided and was put on hold. Shortly after, I got a call back from the same number from a woman with a heavy accent and I said I dialed the wrong number and hung up. I looked up the real eBay customer service number on Google and of course it’s different. How can I report this?
