I had a message from the winning bidder this morning, saying they hadn't bid on the item they 'won't last night, and they have asked eBay to find out if anyone could have hacked into their account. confused

The item only went for £1.70, so I'm not too bothered, but what should I do now?

If the bidder is telling the truth, the security implications are worrying.

Won, not won't, btw. Damn predictive text!

Send eBay a message too? Be interesting to know if this is possible.

I does smell fishy but would you bother fibbing over 1.70?

on day 4 open non paying bidder case, then close in 4 days

Account may have been hacked I guess? If it has they need to report it to ebay
