How to Report a Stolen eBay Account
If you suspect unauthorized use of your account on eBay, the worldwide auction website, you must take steps to report it immediately. Secure your account by logging in and changing your password; also change any security questions you may have assigned to your account. If it is not possible to log into your account, it is all the more imperative to contact eBay to report the theft of your account. If you share your eBay account details with anyone else, such as family members, make sure they are not responsible for the suspicious activity before proceeding
1 Compile whatever facts you have regarding the reasons you suspect your eBay account has been stolen or hacked. Organize them in chronological order. Write them down; the writing process may help to reveal additional details.
2 Go to eBay's Security Live Chat page. Provide the requested information, which includes your eBay user ID and basic personal contact information. Note that it is possible to use this feature even if you are not currently able to access your account.
3 Click the "send" button and wait for a live eBay security chat professional to assist you. Note that wait time may be significant, depending on eBay's security workload.
4 Provide any pertinent information that eBay security requests. Note that per eBay security, no one will ever ask you for credit card numbers, your social security number, site password, or other sensitive information via chat. Do not supply such information if, for some reason, you are asked for it.
Tips & Warnings
-Be vigilant about emails you receive and websites you visit. Always make sure that correspondence from eBay is genuine, and does not lead you to any websites that spoof or phish (resemble, but are fraudulent) the eBay site. For more information, consult eBay's help page on recognizing spoof websites.
-Check the email account you have attached to your eBay account. Make sure to change the password to your email account if it is the same as your compromised eBay password.
-Consider downloading the eBay Toolbar. One of its security features is Account Guard, which automatically monitors whether websites you visit that claim to be eBay are legitimate. It also allows you to monitor all of your buying and selling activities from the convenienceof a button in your web browser.
-Never provide extremely sensitive personal information to any websites that claim to be official eBay sites. In addition to not asking for social security numbers or credit card numbers in their security chat, eBay does not ask for such information on any of its websites, at any time.
