Zombie Seller Takes over eBay Account
I thought this might be right up your alley. Today I heard a funny sound from my phone and I found out it was a sale through the eBay app.
I never heard that sound before because I have never in 15 years on eBay sold anything or even listed anything. So imagine my surprise when I clicked on the app and found that I had sold something.
I had sold a pool I had never heard of and did not own. It sold less l than 30 minutes of being listed and it has now taken me 4 hours for eBay to believe that an account that has never in 15 years sold anything and did not list anything.
The buyer still has an open sale because he did pay and eBay is trying to figure out what happened.
I don't have a PayPal account, but one was added to my account and I did not receive an email. The sale is paid to that PayPal account and the listing is still currently up because eBay will not allow me to remove it while they investigate. It has five more pools available.
I honestly have no idea how this could happen and have changed all the passwords to both my eBay account and my email. But I am very confused. Have you ever heard of anything like this before? I'm still trying to figure out what happened.
Hope you're having a great day.
