Stolen property policy

The sale of stolen property is not allowed on eBay.

The sale of stolen property violates state, federal and international law, and we will work with law enforcement in any attempts to sell stolen property on eBay.

What is the policy?

Stolen property from private individuals or property taken without authorization from companies or government cannot be listed for sale

If you see stolen property on eBay, please contact local law enforcement immediately

Activity on eBay is required to:

  • Follow all applicable laws
  • Respect the rights of third parties
  • Follow the eBay User Agreement
  • Follow this eBay policy

If activity doesn’t meet these requirements, eBay may take action consistent with applicable laws and the eBay User Agreement, and may even be legally required to do so. Such actions may include, as an example only: administratively ending listings or cancelling transactions, hiding or lowering the placement of listings in search results, lowering seller rating, restricting buying or selling, forfeiture of fees, loss of buyer or seller protections, restricting access to member communication and rating tools, removing feedback, and account suspension.

Why does eBay have this policy?

This policy ensures buyers and sellers comply with government laws and regulations, and keeps eBay a safe and reputable marketplace.
