Yeah, ebay security is at an all time low - They could make it safe, by having a login system like natwest for example, where your passwords are entered on a random sequence everytime you login (this makes it impossible for keystroke programs to nick your passwords etc) - but then ebay and the auction sniper companies wouldn't be able to make so much money out of each other then would they.

RIBase
When my eBay account was hacked on to last year, I was advised by eBay to ensure my password had both letters and numbers in and even symbols...

What really surprises me is the lack of effort some people put into their adverts. Especially if they are selling high value items like RIBs. His grammar is appalling. There is a lack of information, and he hasn't bothered to alter the eBay settings. He could of at least pulled the boat onto the road to get a full length shot. How does he expect to sell if he can't even list it in 'boats and watercraft'.
