Re: My Ebay account was hacked!
Ouch. As a frequent eBay user, I will have to keep a look out for this.
UNfortunately, the eBay phishing schemes are getting more and more complicated. I came close to falling for one recently - it was an email query asking why I had not made a payment. Ironically, I had recently paid for an item I won a week earlier. I was about to click on the link in the email address, when I noticed the domain name was not an eBay domain.
Since all such (legitimate) messages automatically appear on the MyeBay page, i simply go that route.
Hopefully, this did not mess up your ranking, sava. But it sounds like it could have ended up much worse than it did.
