My ebay account has been hacked!

Banned
As per title, I can't log into my ebay account as I assume its been hacked for the second time in two weeks. Last week, some unknown third party was listing numerous cosmetic items on my account. Bids were made in dollars, so it was obvious it wasn't me submitting the listings on offer.

Once again I tried to log in today, and the system keeps stating incorrect password.

What do I do? All the live help is only available once you've logged into your actual account. Is there a direct number to phone? Will they actually be able to help me, as I'm assuming the scum bag who's hacked my account, will obviously change all my contact details and just try to ransack my funds available via debit/credit card?!?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
David

This is all you need get ringing now before its to late.

First thing is make sure that any linked paypal account doesn't have the same password and hasn't been hacked. Also if you've been hacked twice in 2 weeks I would run a full spyware check on your PC to see if there's any keyloggers installed. Worry about the ebay account when you are sure that your funds and PC are safe.

Can you link directly to other payment types on the ebay account? I'm not sure, but I don't think so.

Had this happen 3 years ago do what above say report. I can assure you they deal with it fast and the person who did mine was caught.
You will not be out of pocket.
The first thing they will ask you to do is reset account.:thumbsup:

Forgot This a good tip

Use one card to pay for goods use a seperate to buy and get your money.

Make it twice as hard for the B******* Ebay said this is what save me.
