Default WARNING: Certain eBay Listings Can Steal Your Passwords

I just came across this article, it is being reported in several places so you might want to try Google for additional information.

Apparently, there are some listings on the eBay website that will re-direct you to a PHAKE eBay website where your passwords can be stolen:

I seen an article about that on what really happened, im wondering if that's why it's harder to open a seller account now.

Ive seen this in action myself, but if you keep your eyes peeled you notice something is just not right...

Basically what happens is once you open the listing, it has a auto-redirect (guessing html coding) built in, so it takes you to ebay (phishing) login page. You think you've been logged out, so as you log back in, they will capture your details.

Reported to ebay customer services, took them several hours to remove, something so serious I would have assumed the advisor on the phone would remove instantly, but no.

Moving on, just make sure for future reference everytime you approach the login page the URL on the address bar is ebay.co.uk, ebay.com, ebay.au etc., the ⊗⊗⊗⊗ ones are completely different BUT the ebay page looks just like the real deal.
