Bloody eBay

Have been receiving messages from people wanting to come and view a item apparently we had for sale! Which we don't. We don't sell on eBay just buy but very infrequently! I would say once every 6months or so, would it be worth emailing eBay to let them know our account was hacked. And also change password!

yes you need to go to live chat immediately

We rang them at 5am!!! Couldn't remember any of our account stuff ha! They have cancelled it and are investigating it! We have changed the password but we have decided to close it and open a new one!

and don't click on any links in spam emails asking for password/login details. That is generally the way they get your details to hack your account.
