I think they purchase the company to make ebay and paypal fraud detection collaboration seamless. They purchased the company for safety and trust department's exclusive use looks like. More explanation from their press release below.

SAN JOSE, Calif. & TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eBay Inc. today announced that PayPal has agreed to acquire Fraud Sciences Ltd., a privately-held Israeli company with expertise in online risk tools, in a cash transaction with an aggregate transaction value of approximately $169 million. Fraud Sciences’ risk tools and analytics are expected to enhance eBay and PayPal’s proprietary fraud management systems and accelerate the development of next generation fraud detection tools.

The acquisition of Fraud Sciences fits into eBay’s recently announced plans to significantly improve trust and safety across its sites in 2008. “Integrating Fraud Sciences’ risk tools with PayPal’s sophisticated fraud management system should allow us to be even more effective in protecting eBay and PayPal's hundreds of millions of customers around the world," said Scott Thompson, President of PayPal.

The only problem I see is once eBay and Paypal 'seamless' talk to each other. It could be a little harder to manage multiple eBay and Paypal accounts. THe protection you do with your eBay accounts, you'll have to start doing with your Paypal accounts. That means watching Ip address and deleting cookies a lot more. Other then that, it could help sellers with fraud.

Ebay is contradicting themselves. First they do a press release and stated that fraud is less then 1% of all transaction, so why spend another $169 million on antifraud measures? Doesnt makes sense to me or justify the cost..

MAC address will be big update in security as well as some other small durty tricks.
Again the only safe way to be on ebay and paypal is to do identiti theff. They cannot do anything against that.
Ony strong will survive. Identy theff is big bussines in mexico and usa. There are planty of hackers on internet that wuld be happy sell you some good staff.

Actually it's easier than changing your ip addresse Other than that does anybody know if they monitor anything else new? I'm actually doing really good with my accounts and I don't want to lose them...
