this happened to us a few weeks back we rang paypal they were very quick to get sorted, you have to go to recent transaction and then disput each one there is an option to say transaction was not made by you

OMG - could that be someone u know then? Am not too good at the technical side of the pc, but would have thought if they were that clever to hack into ur email account, then why not just go straight to ur ebay account?

socially engineered or hacked?

it might have being a virus,it happened to someone i work with he got a trojan that he couldnt reove and then got a email saying his email account has been hacked,but the email didnt come from ebay it came frm somewhere else and it looked like a dodgy one where someone was tring to get him to reveal password etc.they took it to pc world but have been off so not sure whether is s a dodgy email or not.

I think im quite savvy to dodgy emails so dont think it could be that, cant really think how they got unless its a keystroke trojan.

accounts?



account's / account has

Sorted now, thanks looks like they have had my email account for a while now, had some fraud on my littlewoods account a while back, thought it was post fraud, but looks like they did it through my email, as they had blocked all littlewoods and ebay emails to my account.
