Did you get an email from Ebay recently, asking you to confirm your account information?

NO, it wasn't from providing information to a false inquiry. I think one of us must have sent an email message to a apparent scammer and they were able to access our account somehow. We really don't know. I did inquire of some sellers whose responses to me never showed up in My Message (in Ebay) but came to me via email. Ebay says that this is one of the Alerts to be aware that something could be wrong.

We weren't aware of any problems until we weren't able to get into MyEbay. Then we received several Alert emails from Ebay letting us know that our account had been accessed. Ebay sent us the list of stuff the scammer had listed under our name. We didn't receive responses or messages in response to the bid items. And, Ebay has our account blocked from receiving any messages until I complete the security assignments you have to go through. One of the steps you have to take isn't working so I have to get on livechat to work through it. I have been working lots of hours this week, so I just haven't had the time to complete the process. You do have to take the security tutorial and take a test, tho. I know its all for the good, but as is the usual case in these things, the victim has more pain than the perpertrator (sp).

Of course I am glad they caught it, but it is a real pain trying to get your account restored. I have had to change my passwords to paypal, my personal email and ebay. So far, there is no damage that we are aware of. And, for that we are grateful.

The email from "EBAY" may BE the scam. DO NOT click the link to e-bay! Go into e-bay and contact them from there. These people may be trying to GET your paypal account and e-bay account!

I don't think so because I have the same messages in MyEbay. I sent Ebay a message from there and they replied to me about my account. What your saying did cross my mind, too. Certainly, undermines your trust and security.

Another scam, but it has been awhile. Last month, when I listed my auction to sell something, Ebay asked for confirmation of my credit card number (to cover future listing fees). I was annoyed, but realized that I actually appreciated having an extra layer of security before listing. But, that must have been an exception (maybe it was my anniversary date or something).

"2005 Airstream Travel Trailer 16ft Bambi - - 2,9OO USD
Item number: 150111683134

Shipping costs: US $4.00
Standard Flat Rate Shipping Service
Service to United States"

Brand new evidently, and only $2,900 (although the lister couldn't figure out what a dollar sign is. I wonder what country the scammer is from.), and only $4 shipping. Here is the 1st pic:

(Oh, yeah. Reported to Ebay as fraud: wrong category, low cost shipping, Buy It Now in description but not in auction, "Do not Bid, email me")

E-Bay Scams on Oprah...

E-Bay's security director Rob Chestnut on Oprah today, along with scam victims and security "expert"... Interesting summary of advice:

1. Phony "pfishing" emails asking to log in or for password updates or to click on link from E-Bay and PayPal so good he said he could be fooled. Bottom line, ignore any e-mail from either that doesn't simply suggest you log in normally through secure website. Don't click links, don't reply...

2. Staff of 20 security folks work to fix scams, but miss a lot, and just as worried about lost revenue for auctions going off-site...

3. His advice is to assume any dealings off the website are fraudulent. Period. Avoid any item re-shipping deals also.

4. Added message from Western Union Security Director strongly advises all customers to never use Western Union to send $$ to someone you don't know personally.

5. Both confirmed counterfeit cashier or bank checks are more and more common, and take at least 2 weeks to either clear or come back as fraud. Don't ever deposit check and wire or send someone back prompt funds from deposit..

6. All agreed no legal remedy for fraudsters outside the US, and less than 1% recovery rate for fraud within US.. You're on your own...

Cheers!

I'm selling an Adco airconditioner cover on Ebay right now, and just received this email via the Ebay "Ask a question to the seller":

"If you need additional income, we have an open position as a mediator for selling items on ebay. To learn more, open Get information and enter ZVVU-LFWB-UAOX-ECJR on prompt.Moses"

The person just registered on Ebay yesterday under the User name of "67758614mos( 0)"

That's a new one for me that I haven't seen before. I didn't go to the tradeportal1.org to see what would happen.

So is this something you'd report? I'd be tempted to ask eBay to confirm the validity of these folks if it were me. I'm amazed at how advanced some of the scammers are getting.

Barry - that's just the first step of the scam. They utilize that "help wanted" ad to dupe you into giving up your password. Then your account gets hijacked for the second part of the scam - fraudulent listings

If these people put half the effort into real work the world would be a lot more functional wouldn't it. I wonder sometimes if eBay has for many of us outlived it's usefulness just because there is so much fraud at work you just cannot afford to take a chance. For me at least it has been painful, has cost me money and turned a fair deal into a waste of time and money, and I look now more for entertainment value than to buy things I can get locally. The difference I was saving is made up in knowing I'm getting what I ordered and paid for, there's a level of trust on both sides, and I know I'm thwarting some scum bag scammer from getting even another dime of my hard earned green backs.

Here's a new scam with a little bit different approach.
eBay Motors: 1966 Airstream Safari Vintage Very Very Nice (item 290110673188 end time May-03-07 06:41:01 PDT)

Poor grammer/spelling. Listed at $10K, but picture says "$2950 selling price"
anyone recognize the pics? I'm sure they lifted them from someone else.

. . . why do they keep calling it a "car"?

and it looks like they backed it into something hard and stationary.
