Does a 2 year old ebay transaction really need a vat invoice?
Hello all. I just saw an email from someone asking for a tax invoice for a piece of clothing I sold on eBay two years ago. The url to the auction doesn’t even work anymore and who would keep this in their transaction history? I am a Single bloke Selling junk every now and then, not a company or making a full time Living off eBay sales. Is this a con or does this have legitimacy? I don’t know if I should respond. Part of email in picture.

Ignore it. I would consider it nothing more than a scam.

Don't, they want your VAT number for some reason

Well a 2yo transaction doesn't "need" an invoice.
The invoice may have been needed 2 years AGO when you did the transaction.
It doesn't seem like they want anything except for you to create an invoice.
That should take about 5mins using MS Word.
