Not sure how this scam was supposed to work, but someone hacked into my ebay account and tried selling two expensive items on it. Trouble was I did not know until PayPal told me a large sum of money had hit my account and they wanted extra ID from me. Not a word from ebay! I found who had paid the money and told them, they raised a dispute with ebay who found in his favour (of course as he had paid the money and got nothing for it) and ebay paid him back from my Paypal account. Paypal of course deducted their commission so suddenly I owed them more than £100! I then received demands for ebays selling fees and threats about sending in debt collectors. I spent many hours trying to phone ebay and Paypal and each time when finally getting through being told nothing to worry about it was being sorted. I still got demands from Paypal and ebay for monies. More hours on phone before all was cleared up. Tried to cancel Paypal so this could not happen again but apparently because they had raised a issue which was still on their books, I cannot cancel my account! Still not sure how the scam was supposed to work, but I did start getting extremely plausible Phishing emails apparently from ebay, trying to get me to add an extra email address to my account. Maybe if I had given that maybe they could have got something out of Paypal?
