I got a message yesterday that my eBay password needed to be updated. I did that and within two hours my password was hacked, my email address and phone number on eBay was changed. This was not coincidence. YOUR SERVICE IS NOT SECURE! It took me an hour on the phone with eBay to get it fixed. I will never use GIXEN again. Going to another snipe service.

You never give your Ebay password to Gixen, the authorisation that you give for Gixen to bid on your behalf is done via Ebay.com.

It is therefore impossible for anyone to ever obtain your Ebay password from Gixen, simply because Gixen never has that information in the first place.

Where / how did you get that message?

You see, you never enter your eBay password on Gixen, never. Even when re-authorizing Gixen you are redirected to ebay.com. So there is simply no way Gixen can get your eBay account compromised. Gixen does not have your eBay password nor permissions to update your email and phone number.

The message you got was sent by a hacker and not by Gixen or Ebay. You should never trust messages like this, and should definitely never click on any links they show or you will be hacked again in the future.

It seems no matter how many times people are told NEVER to follow links from messages that tell them to re-set passwords or confirm payment details, some people are still stupid enough to do it. ?????
Is there a Darwin Award for this? ?
