During all this time eBay will hold the money into a trust account.
Yup, but let's explain why that's a part of the scam.
"eBay" is not & never will be involved.
The scammer will send an email to the potential victim falsely pretending to be from eBay, informing the potential victim that eBay guarantees the transaction when in fact, it's the scammer pretending to be eBay.
