Saw this weird comment this morning on a forum :
“Somebody bought a £50 item from me & paid for it but Ebay cancelled it – I went on Chat & it seems somebody hacked into this a/c, bought my item using somebody else’s money & altered the address, so I’m sitting on the money waiting for the real owner to ask for a refund”
Only on eBay, a list of weird goings on all in one shot there
Interesting read by a very pissed off eBay user. He tracked a gang of scammers over a few months to monitor how and what they did on eBay. The way this scam works it seems eBay have no power to stop it. He estimates from his tracking of this one portion of whats going has cost eBay over £100K. He has some sort of live tracking too via Twitter with daily totals so that’s very cool, a lot of work has gone into this. Now you have to imagine if 1 guy can track this amount of cash and over 7000+ victims why can’t eBay?
