False Reporting

eBay does not permit members to abuse the reporting process. Reports of policy breaches to eBay must be truthful and submitted with the intent of addressing a known or suspected breach of eBay policy. 

Breaches of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:

  • Listing cancellation

  • Limits on account privileges

  • Account suspension

  • Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings

  • Loss of PowerSeller status

  • Feedback removal

  • A member submits false reports of Feedback extortion for every negative and neutral Feedback rating received.

  • A seller abuses the Final Value Fee credit process by filing a report on a transaction where the buyer paid for the item.

False reports of policy breaches delay the review processes of genuine reports, which is detrimental to the eBay community.
