As the heading says, this is 'Ask a Member'. Not ask eBay, who wouldn't respond anyway.

 

There seems to be a spate of this going on at the moment. Check your security, run anti-virus and -malware scans, block ads and popups.

Looks genuine enough.

But by the time it's packed safely, postage will probably cost the seller 10 or 13, not 7.95.

 

Have you a free adblocker on your computer? And pop up blocker turned on with the browser ?

More likely it's to do with the eBay site rather than a specific listing.

 

BTW, eBay don't read here, only members like yourself.

@wibbles2005,

 

You may want to read this thread which is one of several on these boards which discusses this issue: https://community.ebay.com.au/t5/Technical-Issues/Popup-to-click-ok-to-win/m-p/2157758

In this case, the spam advert has nothing to do with the seller or item

 

As mentioned, many other people have had the same ad appear while on ebay, some even when viewing their own page
