Found 28th Mar 2009
There is an item in my Watched section that I certainly haven't put there, neither has OH. Have just gone through the kerfuffle of changing my password, checking transactions etc. Our wireless system is secure but just wondering, if someone was to somehow be using our connection and happened to watch the item as a 'guest' would it track back to my ebay account if I hadn't signed out and save it there, if you know what I mean? OH has often watched items as a guest and it has put them in my account summary if I didn't sign out after using ebay, thats why I ask. I can't understand why someone would hack into my account and actually be so obvious as to put a watched item down for later lol! Thanks!

No, it was a pair of mens LFC track pants. I know it wasn't us because we're Evertonians! How odd? I've just checked our wireless system and its definitely secure. I've emailed ebay to see if they can check it out but its freaked me out.

its been happening to me too. I even changed passwords and it still happened.
an account can be hacked

is your msn/hotmail account password the same as your ebay?

Nope, I'm not with them, but my email password isnt the same anyway. Has that happened to you?

Let's hope you don't start buying stuff you don't want next?

I've heard,dunno how true it is that some items can have some sort of "script" on the listing where it adds the item to your watch list.

No, it's just a way of they hack your accounts.
