eBay help

Just been on eBay and people have been buying and selling on my account. And I have just recived a parcel I didn't order and they have been selling iPhones an I'm worried about my feedback and the other people who have paid. Am I the one to blame?? As I had 100% feedback. Also my paypal is the same as I used the same passwords :0(. Wher do I go from here???

you need to get onto either live help or phone support asap.
Not really much else to say except obviously change your passwords.

As above get in touch with ebay straight away. My account was hacked a couple of years ago luckily Ebay picked up on it before me and suspended the account for a short time and emailed me to let me know.

Did you have to pay the buyers the money back or do they trace it back to the hacker?? Sorry I'm totally new to this kinda thing thanks for your help

Check your ebay linked paypal account as the iphone funds probably went direct to hackers account

i;m guessing you would be liable for any losses.

If Ebay can see that your account has been fraudently used you will not be liable, please make sure you change your passwords straight away on Ebay and Paypal. Get on the phone to Ebay asap.

They went into mine an can see where the money went. I did sell an iPhone 3GS and 4 and I didn't restore the one phone due to buyer wanting it as it was :0s but I wiped all my eBay and paypal details. And the items are comic to my address Do I accept them?

banned#9

banned#10
That's what I don't get They have not transferred it into another account or anything I'm so confused I'm just going to turn the items away an refuse delivery
banned#11
are you sure you're not just a bit thick and you've actually been buying and selling items on ebay yourself?
banned#12
Yeah 100% sure I'll ring them when I go on my break

I did it all over the ebay live chat system - it was sorted in about 10mins - oddly they hacked my ebay account and listed loads of hats for sale?!?

I, very stupidly, was using the same password for ebay, paypal and my email account!

Once it was sorted over live chat I obviously reviewed my password policy!
#14
As above you need to chat to "live help" check your messgae OP ive sent you a link,you need to sort this out straight away.

In the future,don't ever use the same passwords for Ebay AND Paypal,good luck.

lol - I know, a bright idea that was wasn't it! I'm not even sure why I did it - it just sort of happened - could have been a nightmare but in the end they just listed some hats for sale and that was it so I changed all of my passwords (erm....to different ones!) and that was the end of it.

quite a painless way to learn a lesson really - could have been a lot worse!

On mine it's copied my older listings for iPhone 3GS and 4 an also included a iPad and a laptop an I can't sort it out until I get home :0(. Just hope I don't have to pay the poor people who brought them back hope it's all covered

Someone's hacked your account and has access to your ebay, paypal and email - and your first thought is about your feedback? Wouldn't be my top priority. In fact it wouldn't concern me in the least.

spot on!

seems weird to me that OP has time to post on here yet hasnt got time / allowed access to contact pp / ebay!

next we'll be hearing that OP thought a good password was 'password' ;)

I think you're wrong. Most people I know dont even know what a shift key is and think the word 'password' for a password is a good one! oO

half the time you help someone and they can't even be bothered to come back to the thread and say thanks to everyone who tried to help. Then they wonder why people just take the ****.
