I notice that one of the payments the buyer has had feedback left from the seller so maybe the seller also has the payment in their account? how confusing

Don't know.......but they'll grab it back as the seller won't send without payment and PAYPAL will just refund them so i wouldn't spend it unless you want them sending bailiffs after you.

I'm not going to spend it,i shall just leave it sitting there and see what happens I think

I have had a lot of strange activity on my ebay account recently.

People keep logging into my account and watching items on there :x

Yes.......just give it some time. If you find in a month or so's time there has been no disputes then it's Brucie Bonus time. :w00t:

Change your password.

If it's still happening then it must be someone with access to your PC with a stored password.

how long is it legally before money in your account becomes yours or does it ever become yours as such?

Never.......but after so long you can easily claim that you didn't notice the payments had gone in and asumed it was yours.

If you take it out and they, then want it back, won't they just take it from your bank account or credit card, if your paypal has no funds?

Then it sounds like someone is monitoring your activity on the PC either through your wireless or a key logger type program.

If they are then they will have access to everything you do.

Depends how active the account is. I have stuff in and out of mine everyday and i'd never be able to keep track of it all. I just rely on eBay

Check for Spyware etc.

And check that your wireless is secure and change the access password.

Spyware is rogue stuff that gets on your PC. Do a search for Spyware Doctor on google and download it and run it to clear it.
