I placed an item on eBay (D800) and found myself in a fraudulent situation. A user from Australia purchased the camera, but once payment went through they emailed asking to send it to Indonesia. Obviously a red flag went off from that and the fact that the PayPal account was a different name than the eBay account. Also, I was contacted from an email with a third name on it.
So I immediately contacted eBay and was told to request a transaction cancellation. While waiting for the response I refunded the PayPal payment and 15 minutes later received a message from an eBay user asking why I was charging and refunding money from their PayPal account.
At this point I had figured it all out and through information from eBay I found out the buyer account was hacked as well as the PayPal account used.
This is certainly nothing new in the world of eBay dealings, but when it happens it makes it more real and quite scary. So be careful!
