What do you make of this?

Dear deek72uk ([email protected]),

We've detected some unusual activity on your eBay account, and it looks like your password may have become known to a third party. In order to protect you and your eBay account we've reset your password and Secret Question (password hint).

The unusual activity may be a result of using a sniping site to bid on your behalf at the last minute, using a public-use computer or could be a result of you answering a spoof mail. You'll find more information on spoof below.

Here's what you should do now:

1) Choose a new eBay password
2) Change your Secret Question
3) Update your information in Turbo Lister
4) Protect against spoof emails

1) Choose a new eBay password

1. Go to the eBay homepage and click on "My eBay".
2. Click on "I've forgotten my password" on the sign-in page.
3. Answer two of the questions from your contact information (such as your postcode and Date of Birth) as we have changed your Secret Question.
4. Check your email for the "Forgotten Password" email.
5. Copy the link in this email into the address bar of a new browser window. Do not click on the link.
6. Enter and confirm your new password.

Tips for secure passwords:
- Choose a completely new password, preferably a random combination of letters and numbers. This password should be different to all of your other online passwords.
- Never give your password to anyone else. eBay will not ask you for your password or credit card details in any communication.
- If you used your old eBay password for other services such as PayPal or online banking, you should choose a new password for those accounts as well.

2) Change your Secret Question

Please change your Secret Question and check that your eBay registration information is correct. Once you have created a new eBay password, you can update both your Secret Question and your registration information in My eBay, under "Personal Information".

3) Update your information in Turbo Lister

If you use Turbo Lister for selling on eBay, it is important that the information in Turbo Lister - including your eBay password - is the same as in My eBay.

Here's how to update your details in Turbo Lister:

1. Click on "Tools" in the Turbo Lister menu bar, then on "Options".
2. Make the necessary changes in "My Data".

4) Protect against spoof

The safest way to access your eBay account is to type "www.ebay.co.uk" into the address bar of your internet browser and then click "Sign in" or "My eBay".

Always check My eBay. Most emails from eBay or sent via the eBay system will be available in My Messages. If you are in doubt about an email you receive, forward it to us at:

[email protected]

We encourage you to visit our Safety Centre for more tips on protecting against spoof and buying and selling safely on eBay. To get there, click on the "Safety Centre" link at the bottom of the eBay homepage.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation in this important matter. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further queries or require assistance.


Regards,

eBay Trust & Safety

as long as you have not clicked on any links from the email, then click on forgotten password and what does it ask you for? do not answer anything, just what does it ask you for?
#12


but the email itself tells me to do that

'Always check My eBay. Most emails from eBay or sent via the eBay system will be available in My Messages. If you are in doubt about an email you receive, forward it to us at:

I'd suggest if you have initiated an email from ebay by saying you had forgotten your password, that email will be ok.

Obviously don't click any of the links in the email but I believe the email is genuine - Ebay DO SeNd emails like that when accounts appear to have been comprimised.

As stated do not under any circumstances click links in the email but don't listen to the ... people who are saying 100% scam etc

Can u use a different machine? Again the .com is not necessarily an issue as your eBay account is valid on all eBay sites, so not surprising email come from .com

however would check on another pc if poss in case your hosts file has been changed etc

God how most of you are annoying.

The email said GO to ebay and click on the tab to reset/recover the password as ebay have reset your password

I didn't see anywhere they said there was a link in the email to click, the email said GO to ebay.

Now they can't log into their ebay account - this tellls any sane person the email was genuine and they have changed the password

Simple go to ebay by typing the address in your web browser then log in and if you can't (which you cant) follow the instructions by clicking the link that says confirm your identity.

Your not clicking anything in any emails, you typed the address yourself its genuine.
Trust your senses not info from badly informed suspicious people that don't read what's written and who always assume the worse.
Long as you dont click links in emails you'll be fine.

you are not 100% correct because various badware will change the hosts file and point domains elsewhere. However, I'm with u fully about slagging off some of the utter utter idiots in this thread

comments such as "100% spam" are just stupid and wrong

i followed the instruction in the email. I went to ebay via google. I selected 'forgotten passwrd' copied and pasted the link in the email, reset password and logged in. all seems fine now, no unknown transactions.

Also, both emails are present in 'my messages' so I presume that suggests all is well?

Yea it does. It also makes it clear that hukd users are overly confident in their abilities but actually utterly useless

the porter specifically should be banned for such a silly comment

glad it's sorted though

Can you hear that? That's the sound of reverse gear clunking into
place as various posters flee the scene

although your excuse is pitiful, you win points for replying rather than ducking and running like the rest of the people shouting scam!
