    So, i went to log into ebay, incorrect password, wondered, hmm thats strange.
    tried again, the same, tried on my laptop, the same, so i send request for my password and check my mail, turns out there were about 50 emails that i'd listed a chanel handbag at BIN £28.50 and some louis vuitton bags, then, 2 emails from ebay themselves, this one.....
    and this one......

    Scumbags :(

    How the hell does this even happen.

    Ebay should be able to track people via their payment methods.

    Happened to my mum, the scroates ran up near £700 worth of auction wins and changed the account info to somewhere in Egypt. Fortunately she was able to get everything cancelled and her account back. I must admit though, I can only see one way they obtained her password...
