Hey guys, just giving you a heads up which I am pretty sure all of you know to look for. Someone ordered something from my eBay and I have automatic payment sent up on my account so it went straight through. It was only for like $4.35 but I am assuming it was to test the waters to see if I would catch it.

Long story short, make sure to WATCH for small purchases! I am resolving it with eBay but if it had been a larger purchase it could have been bad. I caught it within an hour of them placing the order.

Its kind of funny now because I imagine a little old lady hacking it because of what was ordered, a Crochet kit! hahaha

search "ebay hack 2013" and there's a video on utube. I don't know if it's real or not but if it is, it's a scary thought.
Can those be reported somehow if it is?

ebay accounts are stolen all the time. People use easily guessable passwords. If I emailed 1000 people and told them to send me their ebay password and I'd give them $1000 I bet I would get a half dozen passwords. You don't have to be smart to be a criminal , you just have to have a lack of any morals and prey on unaware people.
