eBay UK has confirmed to Windows Middle East that UAE auction portal www.ebay.ae is not a legitimate ‘eBay’ site. However the firm was unwilling to say whether it is planning to take any action against the web portal’s owners. In a statement given to Windows as this magazine went to press, an eBay spokesperson in the UIK commented: “Ebay.ae is indeed known to eBay, and is not a legitimate eBay portal. In terms of any repercussions, it is eBay’s policy not to comment on action against third parties.” When asked by Windows Middle East, the spokesperson added that eBay “currently has no plans” to launch in the Middle East region. As a result, this means that Souq.com is, and remains, the UAE’s primary online auction website, followed by the part-auction portal uaemall.com.
