Believe it or not I was not looking for trouble when I stumbled across this fake login page I just wanted to cancel an advert but eBay hides the option in a drop down list so I did a quick ‘Google’
And I picked the first link that popped up as showed
here and then without thinking I clicked the 'eBay end listing early form'And that was how eBuster got scammed but I soon realized my mistake and
eBay had been warned several time about this fake login page hosted on www.About.com servers and when eBay failed to respond to my concerns about the page I a took a copy and as you can see added a big red bold warning message and published the cover up on this site so now comes the proof about who owns the page.
Now at this stage you have two options you can view eBays forum pages and see for yourself or you can look at a copy I have taken and the reason I insist on keeping copies is because eBay are in the habit of removing pages and message which I will come back to later.
News flash 09/07/2009 eBay removed the page from the forum
Yes I know what you’re saying he just posted it in a form and maybe eBay didn’t read it but you would be wrong and again here is the proof.
You can read one of the original emails
here and again notice the incompetence
where eBay say one minute the account was safe and next it had been hijacked and it’s not just fake login page but also
contact page but still I best count myself lucky as half the time
eBay refuses to talk English and insists on sending me messages in French.
