your link has a .mc-cvic.com tagged on the end of the ebay.co.uk address - at first glance it looks like ebay - but its not.

As I said that first link isn't an ebay domain name - check it out: cgi.ebay.co.uk.mc-cvic.com/

It's pretty easy to set something like that up. I suspect the login page your getting is just a copy of the ebay one on this dodgy website which, as you say grabs your details. Be careful!

If your worried about this sort of thing, download the ebay toolbar. It tells you when it thinks your about to log into a fake ebay page.

No - just checked with eBay - they too are not happy - the change of address is generated by Norton I think

The item also appears under the following item number!! - 160374814121

Something clearly wrong

To find manually -

Search - RIB - Boats and Watercraft - should be listed 2nd down under most recent listings

See what you think

Thanks Guys - have years of experience with eBay - so much so I set up a commercial eBay operation for a larger national charity - was also involved in setting up eBays own early "charitable" selling pages - so confident I'm not going mad - well I guess thats a matter of opinion

Have rung them now and they are "looking into it" - that will be another long wait

Whoops

Take the link out of this thread then guys. If It's a fraudulent link, possibly to steal our usernames and passwords, its a bit of a bummer that we can still fire into it! like what I just did

RW - only JK can edit the original post - so I have quarantined it which will make the thread confusing but avoid anyone being phished...
