I received a "Bill Me Later" invoice from Ebay telling me I have an outstanding unpaid bill for $349.00. I have not used this option at all

I paid all my orders through Paypal and I even check my Ebay account and it shows my balance as zero. Can someone please tell me if this notification is for real or another scam or phishing message. And please tell me that I owe you nothing.. Thank you!

do you have a Bill Me Later account?

if not, then your assumption that this is spam, is most likely correct.


be sure not to click on any links in the suspicious email.

Well, Did you apply for a such if not it is a scam and try to some  mess up some ones' brain. So  don't respond to any of linked emails in your received message. Like previous responders mentioned it's flowering around too many in a such short period.

There have been many posts in the past few days about this phony email. It is a SCAM. Report it to spoof@ebay.com & spoof@paypal.com.

It is a phishing scam


Delete it and run scans on your computer to make sure you didn't pick up any nasties

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

There were several posts the past couple of days regarding this.

Yes it's a scam-they are sending this bill for that exact amount $349.00 to several people-some of whom have never even had a BML acct.


Send it to spoof@ebay.com or spoof@paypal.com  and then delete it.


Hopefully you didn't click on anything-if you did run your security scans.


Good Luck.

Go to your paypal account and if you have a BML account, there is the info and the link at the top of your paypal home page.  If it's there, you can click on it to go to your BML account.  Bill Me Later is a paypal account and they have the link to use it every time you go into paypal to pay for an item.  Maybe you clicked on it without realizing it?  You can also call BML customer service -

- Give details - esp item numbers. It's hard to answer vague questions
- Use complete sentences and paragraphs - it's easier to read
- If you want to add more details, use the options/edit link on the bottom left of your post.
