Ebay tells me I have stuff for sale, and I didn't list anything!!!

WTF?

I just got three! emails from ebay telling me I have items listed, I didn't list anything!!!!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8746347911

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8746348091

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8746348159

I logged in, changed my password, I got stuck in a loop, "You are about to leave a secure connection...", "You are about to view pages over a secure connection...

Grrrr! While typing this thread, I get another 'listing confirmation' email!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8746349023

This is not my doing! It says something about Western Union and money transfers, and China in the payment description, plus it's in Euro's and says local pickup...

Fuck! I just got a 5th email!!! (sorry for the profanity, I'm pissed!!!)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8746349138

I have 100% perfect feedback... someone is screwing with me... these must be set on a timer... here comes a 6th!!!

EDIT: While searching ebay for a place to email someone, and writing out a note to them, I received 3 more confirmation emails...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8746350219

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8746350795

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8746350543

This ain't funny. It's now up to 21 auctions and I also got an email from someone who is 'a potential buyer'....

Hallo, gibt es das Rad auch in anderen Rahmengrössen?
Is their any other size of this bysicle (maybe 57cm)?
Thank you.

When you logged into eBay, you didn't do it through whatever link was in the email, did you?

They were legit emails from ebay. Someone hacked my account.

I posted a message on the SafeHarbor board and got a ton of replies immediately.

Here is the link for live chat for ebay if anyone ever needs it. They took care of it right away...

I had the same thing happen over the Thanksgiving week when I was away from home, Fortunately, one of my regular buyers spotted the bogus auctions and contacted eBay, who immmediately recognized that someone was up to mischief, and cancelled the auctions.

Considering that all I've sold in the past 6 years on eBay has been CDs, movies and theater memorabilia, I was happy that I didn't have to figure out shipping charges for tractors and other heavy farm equipment.
