    So those c**ts have been hacked and now my details are potentially available to identity thief's. That's my full name, address and dob.

    Also I have to change my password and make sure I've not used it on any other site.

    Finally they still haven't notified me by email of this.

    I really feel like a public lawsuit should be put in place as well as a petition to make it illegal for ecommerce sites to request full user details.

    This might sound stupid but wtf?

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...change-personal-details-dont-explain-why.html

    So now if my identity gets stolen, who do I go to? Wtf do I do? Why should the public have to suffer because of such a greedy company?

    They seem to be taking this very lightly for the multi-billion dollar company that they are.

    I would love to see a lawsuit against them.

    Wow, I'm surprised that I haven't seen this all over the place. Thats messed up, wouldn't be surprised if there is a class action lawsuit on the way.

    I think we should all have a cup of tea, and calm down! Besides OP, in the traditional custom of a black hatter, you were running an eBay stealth account, no? :cool:

    I'm real surprised that we have not at least gotten an email from them... I have from 3 other sources but eBay has been silent.

    Shocked actually.

    I just hope they didn't get Paypal info. On the flip side, it might be time to hit up the Deep Web and buy some stolen Paypals for cheap.

    100% agree with OP, still nothing from them even acknowledging it. At the very least there should have been a forced password change, but NOTHING.

    Oh, but still getting all the bullshit 'offer' emails...

    Make sure your ebay password isn't the same as your paypal password or else change it!

    F*ck eBay. I owe them like $300 and I have no plans on paying them since my account is banned.

    Unless they try to get it put on my credit LOL :D

    eBay is doing what they do best and that is staying silent. If they mass email all their users it would be a horrible event.. but since not a whole lot of the user base knows it's better to stay silent and risk a class action lawsuit that probably cost them very little in the grand scheme of things.

    They earn 10+% of every sale they aren't hurting for money haha.

    Don't forget to change your paypal passwords as well. And keep changing the passwords (ebay+pp) every 2 months. Don't forget that this hack was done in February, and they are notifying users now after 2+ months. That's height of inefficiency, possible criminal-level carelessness, and extreme stupidity. For this alone they should be taken to courts...

    Yes, what else do you need? I'm talking about the UK here. You don't exactly need a lot of details to commit identity theft/fraud.

    So, in the UK to take a loan, get a CC or create a business entity, you do not need any kind of identification? :eek:
