In a statement given to Windows Middle East earlier, and eBay spokesperson commented: “www.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, the spokesperson added that eBay “currently has no plans” to launch in the Middle East region.
