so the auction was ended--I hope no one sent any money--but I feel for the seller who got hacked.

my experience was pretty horrible--it happened 6 hours before the end of auction for my Arg--and if you've ever sold a big item on ebay you'll know that it's very time consuming--you get zillions of phone calls and emails, I had people coming to look at it every day--and then to have the auction ended--infuriating--also I was put into some weird security zone by ebay--I couldn't send emails through them and all the info about bidders disappeared so i couldn't contact anyone to explain what happened.

I started up another auction right away--but that auction was being treated as suspicious by ebay so bidders disappeared and again I couldn't contact anyone--I finally got ebay to admit what they were doing, closed down that auction and started auction #3--so another week of craziness untill the Arg finally was sold!

Moral of the story--do not look at any strange emails--the one that got me was sent through ebay--which i thought was secure, BUT IT IS NOT!!

I have a couple of limited edition collectible items I bought three years ago specifically to hold onto and resell for profit (keeping the third for myself) but because of all of the fraudulent stuff going on on Ebay, I'm afraid to even try these days.

A couple of years ago my wife bought an item on Ebay and paid through pay-pal. The seller kept making excuses about being sick and couldn't get to the post office to mail it, yada yada yada. After a few days, my wife started checking and all of the sudden this seller had a ton of complaints about the same M.O. and when she filled a claim with pay-pal, they did their investigation and told her that the seller had cleared his account and there was no way for her to get her money back. Now e-bay owns pay-pal and their policy is supposed to be to guarantee transactions on e-bay. So my wife wrote our credit card company and explained to them what had happened and that she never received the merchandise and that she was disputing the charges and included the response from pay-pal. The credit card company removed the charge from our account and back charged pay-pal. Pay-pal was not happy. But neither was my wife that she had to go through all the extra trouble when pay-pal was supposed to guarantee the transaction. Since then I don't trust pay-pal or e-bay and on the few occasions that I have bought using e-bay, I have dealt directly with the seller using my credit card and left pay-pal out of the loop and out of the profit cycle!
