I am a victim of an eBay related telephone promotion scam where I was offered a super discount on my new Xfinity service if I would immediately purchase $225 worth of eBay gift cards from a local retailer and call them back with the card numbers. It was one of my stupid days, so I did it. Then they called back and said those cards were "blocked" so they would send me a check for $300 for my trouble, but only if I would go out and buy two more cards in that amount. This time I woke up. So I am now in possession of two worthless eBay gift cards and I I'm out $225 that was charged to my credit card. My bank is trying to assist me with disputing this charge, but they don't hold out much hope. And eBay has not been helpful at all, after numerous attempts. I'm telling this story to help anyone who can avoid this and also in the hope that someone might have a suggestion of how to get my money back. Thanks for listening.
