My Ebay account was recently hijacked too. Bunch of sunglasses 'auctions' were posted, but Ebay locked my account before I knew anything about it, and I've since restored access to everything, changed passwords etc. None of my account information was changed though.
To all those wondering, I never log into email, ebay or anything like that from public computers. Only other place I log in is at friends computers, which I'm guessing is what caused the problem, either that or Auction Sniper (how I 'won' the last auction).
I'm not really worried about it. If anything, they might try to purchase something with my Paypal account thats associated with closed bank account and a low limit credit card...
I sent money to a guy who listed hundreds of cameras that did not exist. He made a couple of built in delays to his victims he said did not anwer emails until the weekend etc. I actually coresponded by email with him once.
When I called the phone listed for his account it was a guy who had his name and phone number used and attached to another address. The guy was a cop! There was another guy in town with the same name they estimated the scam made close to a million bucks by the time it was shut off. The mail went to a mailbox outside on a wall at a storefront that was vacant. Lost $400, ebay no help. The auction had the little "buy secure" or something similar on the page. He fooled ebay too. He built up his feed back first by selling the recipe for something for a dollar. Then when that was good, he switched to the scam.
Don't believe anything about the ebay info. Not the feedback, not anything. It's a total crapshoot.
