Recently my eBay account was hacked and a fraudulent listing was made, it was for a mobile phone with a sale price of just £12 (about 5% of its RRP) with 10000 units. I received a notification to say that I'd made a sale, which set alarm bells ringing and I was able to remove the listing within a couple of hours of it being posted.
After securing my account I'm left puzzled, what exactly was the hacker tying to gain from this? Was this an attempt at some sort of scam, or simply mischief?
Checking the withdraw details I only saw my own. I was even invoiced to my own details to pay for the listing; although this has since been credited back.
