So it goes like this

Item bought.

Seller does not respond.

Payment is not taken.

Ebay email to say it was a compromised account they have taken action do nothing.


OK but what did the person doing it get out of it because this has now happened three times on the same type item.

So what are they attempting to get away with?

Are they getting details they can use from us somehow?

I just don't get it why is someone hacking ebay and selling the same item but not taking any money???

They get your primary email address, phone number, full name, and full address.
Perhaps eBay stopped it before they could take the money ?

I don't think that's what it is, I think @jco83 was right. I was just answering the question about what details they get from you.

What details would they have got do you think?

The sale never went through as payment was never taken.

Would ebay have sent my phone number address and email to them?


Has anyone sold anything what is sent after the sale go through?
