attention ebay users

I copied this off another forum, I had 1 of them on my account. Check yours for sure

Quote:
"If you guys have eBay accounts, go to your account info and hit preferences. scroll down and check out the third party section. It should be empty unless you have someone on there. I checked mine and had 5 of the sneaky bastards that got on there, don’t know how they got there but they were. you can delete all the scammers by going to preferences, go to third party and click revoke if there are any you don’t want, just go over to the right. just follow the instructions and delete them. Just thought I'd pass it along I was surprised to see unauthorized people in my account."

Those aren't people, they are normally programs like a snipe program you have setup, etc, etc. But, can't be too safe

guys those arent scammers... they're services that you can use outside of ebay. for example if you sign up on an auction manager site, they would be listed there.

now i suppose it is possible that you could be tricked into adding a service with less than desirable intentions to the list, but for most people what's listed there is just fine.

edit: BradC beat me to it

Whatever was just on one of my accounts, was not something I ever authorized or even was asked about. And that happened the night I made some bids. Going on to my other accounts now.

on a more important note, I was almost fooled by a spoof e-mail from supposed 'eBay'...it was from aw-confirm@ebay.com, telling me that my account was suspended and to view information on the suspension, click on the following link....the e-mail was actually pretty good, better than most fake ones, so be on the lookout for those as well...

aw-confirmation is a valid E-Bay notification address. Usually the URL of the links in the e-mail are what give it away.

I never click on the links like the one Intercooled T posted up. I always just open another window and go through Ebay to open my account.
