Ebay hacking warning

Just a warning that if your password is no longer recognised on the ebay site it is likely your account has been hacked. Seems to be some sort of scam to buy electronic equipment and iphones etc. They are sending out messages using other peoples accounts asking to complete the transaction out of ebay. Luckily they haven't succeeded yet in getting into our paypal account but you have been warned particularly if you are trying to sell phones.

I think this scenario is easily avoided by using a bit of common sense and avoiding clicking on links in phishing emails that are made out to look like they come from eBay / PayPal.
