So I've had a horrible last 2 days with some dangerous eBay buyers who have a fraudulent system set up to prey upon people legitimately trying to sell stuff. It just happened to me TWICE in the last 3 days on the same item and I've spent hours on the phone with eBay and PayPal. I think it is so so so important to educate everyone out there about what happened to me that I'm going to cross the boundaries of GeekGirl and tell you my very personal story of what happened to me a few years ago and also just this week because I think you ALL need to know about it if you engage in any e-commerce on even the smallest level. We need to help protect one another in an ever-growing cyber-world!
While I'm working on this video I want to know if YOU have had any eBay or PayPal horror stories or phishing attempts-if you have and you feel comfortable sharing them, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I might be referencing YOUR story in the video!
