I think the offer may have been triggered by logging into an Ebay account I haven't used in a long time -
Same happened to two relatives - So log into Ebay.ie, buy nothing, and see if you get an email from them in a day or so.

It's €10 with no minimum purchase - no change of course if its less....


So - continuing the bargain theme - what will you or what did you buy with your tenner?

I bought this:
https://www.ebay.ie/itm/283170826493

4 Litres of Isopropyl Alcohol posted for €9.50c - useful in cleaning up the bargains I get at boot sales.... (hasn't arrived yet though... )

I got that offer. I hadn't used eBay for a while,so maybe that's it.

Might try the new account as well though.

I saw that isopropyl ebay offer a few days back, but it seemed all too dodgy, with the desc copied from some other auction, the comparably very low price and the free shipping of a 4kg+ parcel from UK to Ireland. Anyway, paypal has you covered. Let us know if it arrives.

A note of caution on this, I got more or less the same email but contacted Ebay to confirm if it was genuine. They advised it had not issued from them and to treat with extreme caution as it was not genuine. (If from them, it should appear as a message in EBay account page)

The best way to be safe is to never log in via the link in the email. Go to another window and log in to eBay separately and then copy in the text of the voucher code into the checkout section of this session.

The voucher I used seems to be linked to EBay, they have it marked as redeemed in my account page

I've seen some links on Facebook, that you can buy a 10 voucher for spending 3 with some company and they'll email you a code... Looks dodgy

I got it, bought a really good book. I’d read his first book about ultra running and a friend recommended this second book.

i got the same email , but no voucher codes etc , how do you redeem it ?

Voucher is real - you need to buy-it-now and at the payment page on EBay there is a place to put the code- worked without issue for me...

I’m not so sure now the auction I spent it on is genuine though- I will be requesting Ebay cancel my bid- wonder if I’ll get the credit back...

No email here

Just to be clear, I am not saying any voucher is not genuine, but rather it may be worth to confirm with EBay before using.
In my case, the purported EBay email was not in fact from EBay, which does call into question what any of the details might be used for

I'd say the ISO in the OP is a scam. As previously mentioned, a tenner wouldn't even cover postage. The scammer is possibly targeting the cannabis oil market, as that is a huge market for ISO these days.
