We thought we’d scared Garreth off when we revealed his super-dedication to eBay at the time he launched the Trust and Safety blog. Not so though, he’s come back with avengeance and a new video clip on the Safety Centre home page.
In the video he covers the basics of phishing, how to spot if your account is compromised, and what to do to contact eBay. It’s all pretty basic stuff to a seasoned eBayer but it’s great for new comers to the site.
There’s a second video with tips on Buying Safely on eBay which again is great for newcomers to the site. It gives some basic tips on how to assess a seller and make sure they are trustworthy and the item is the one you want.
It’s refreshing to see a senior figure from eBay in person, even if it is just on video. Too often the company is a faceless behemoth and although each and every transaction is personal to the buyer and seller the marketplace can appear unapproachable.
I’ve just one question though…. Gareth, you began your Trust and Safety blog on the 17th January and still only have one post. Surely something newsworthy has happened in Trust and Safety that you want to share with us?
