Etsy Sellers Concerned about Entwined Accounts

By: Reader

Dear Ina,
Thought you'd be interested in this - as I am sure many Etsy sellers would be. It appears that somehow a seller's dashboard is being made accessible to someone she doesn't know but has purchased from (another seller).  

This serious breach of security has been going on for a couple days now with no resolve.  

Here is the link to the forum discussion still going on at this time:

Very disturbing.
I read the whole thread.

So other people can see other sellers account, just wonderful.
Sounds like the etsy hacks just tripped over their own two feet.
The bad part is that this happened before sometime last year.
I have a very bad idea that they have been intentionally accessing accounts to dismantle sellers shops from within each of them.
They have actually hidden some of my messages in my spam box.
Not even a notification that there was a new message.  I just check them every time.

etsy has a reputation for playing dirty.  I mean - clean the honey dipper- DIRTY.

Why is it that etsy will HIDE your listings and SHARE your account information?
Where is the punishment for another security breach?
Just wait, soon it will be time for their Managed Payment mishaps again.

This is worth the extra 12% success fee?
The shipping fee DOUBLE charge?
Who is the authority that chooses to blacklist shops because their ego got bruised?

This is the standard for their 'imitation' business.

Yep, just went to Etsy to sign in, someone else already has, and they've been messing with the order of things as I like them to be presented....New / Old, First / Last, etc...

Dear The End,

Not sure how effective it may be...

But maybe take screenshots and save any intrusion that you can from their hack.
I have already saved the blog forum in my favorites folder.
I probably should screen shot that as well because we all know how etsy likes to delete unflattering truths about them.

There are some serious breaches here, and hopefully you and others could be on the better half of a lawsuit.

Best Regards & Happy Thanksgiving.
