Ebay Virus??????

Last couple of days have had a problem listing and monitoring my Ebay account...I am typing in a description of an item to be listed and suddenly I am hijacked and can not complete the listing...an image of an eight pronged wheel shows up, much like a ship's wheel...after a minute or so, I am able to complete the listing...anyone knows what this is all about...Phil

in reply to cheshire-cats

The other day i get a email in ebays messaging system, it does not address me by name, dear (blank) call us about your account, to get the phone number click on this link...you will have to sign in with your username and password......


So, i call ebay....What is this!!!!!  I say...


They give some lame excuse that this was not intended for me....then she says you didn't click on that link to call me, did you?


I say no, but that was my tip off that there is phishing going on right here in the message system..


Anyone getting this mail DO NOT CLICK ON THAT LINK OR GIVE YOUR INFORMATION!
