What are eBay fraud claims?

eBay fraud claims are a way to compensate users following fraudulent transactions on the eBay platform external link icon light blue. Fraud can happen to buyers or sellers on eBay, so these types of claims can be initiated by both.

Do you qualify for an eBay fraud claim?

Qualifying for an eBay fraud claim largely depends on the nature of the transaction and the immediacy with which you report the issue. To be eligible, you must typically meet the following criteria:

For buyers

If you have been a victim of fraud on eBay when purchasing items and would like to claim, then you must demonstrate that you purchased an item on the platform but never received it. Or, the item you received was significantly different from the listing description. In some cases of fraud, you may have been charged for a purchase you did not authorise, which you can also claim for.

For sellers

If you’re a seller on eBay and have been a victim of fraud, then your qualifying criteria will differ slightly. You may have sold the item through eBay but had the product returned in a different condition than it was sent. Or, you may have received a chargeback after the item was successfully delivered.

What evidence do you need to make an eBay fraud claim?

The evidence required for an eBay fraud claim varies based on the specifics of the transaction and the nature of the fraud. Generally, the more documentation you can provide, the stronger your claim will be. Essential pieces of evidence include:

Proof of payment

If you have any evidence that shows proof of payment – either as a buyer or seller – then this could be useful for your claim. These transaction records can prove that the purchase or sale was made through eBay and was completed. This is helpful because it can help calculate the level of compensation you’re entitled to.


Any correspondence you have between yourself and the fraudster can work in your favour as evidence. Letters, texts or emails can help build a timeline for the fraud and demonstrate any fraudulent tactics they used against you.

Delivery information

Any shipping and delivery information, such as tracking numbers of receipts of successful delivery, can be used to show that the product was successfully delivered, which is useful for sellers. Buyers who have been scammed might be able to use this as evidence of non-delivery of items, too.


Photographs of the products in question can also help support your claims of fraud. Whether it’s images of the products you received or that were returned to you, if they differ from the listing then this can show how the fraud may have occurred.

How much compensation could you get for an eBay fraud claim?

The compensation for an eBay fraud claim depends on several factors, including the nature of the claim, the value of the transaction, and the available evidence. Your eBay fraud claim aims to fully reimburse you for the purchase price plus shipping costs if the claim is successful.
