eBay's Vehicle Purchase Protection covers only certain vehicle transactions that are completed ON eBay.com. If a Craigslist seller "promises" you eBay protection programs, walk away. It is fraudulent.
- A great deal that sounds too good to pass up
- Seller can't meet in person because of a number of reasons (i.e., they are a soldier in Iraq or they left the vehicle in a "local shipping company")
- Seller claims to have made arrangements with eBay's Vehicle Purchase Protection or Finance Centres
- Seller requests payment by money wire via Western Union or MoneyGram
