    Hey everybody,
    Everything was fine until 15 minutes ago. Now, I suddenly can not login to my eBay account and when I submit my ID to Forgot Password page, it says that there's not an account like that.
    But the money is still on my PayPal account. Probably I'm banned from eBay, but will they get all the money from my PayPal?

    Thanks

    Best thing to do would be to contact their support.

    Why are you acting so rash for? Just wait call them a few times and sort it out. If you've done nothing wrong they won't ban you.

    If you try and remove the funds from your PayPal account they will detect fraud and the chances of you recovering your account is nil.

    Mine was not hacked, but a friend of mine was. He spent three hours on the phone with their support.

    Why do people panic immediately as soon as something goes wrong?
    You need to relax a bit.

    Are you sure? Just a few sites have a story about this. Also, eBay definitely keeps backups, don't they? I'm quite sure they're not the guys who don't. Besides, where the hell people get something like "eBay has been hacked" when the only official response to the problems has been "We are aware that some users may experience problems when using the eBay Site. We are actively working on restoring the issue and apologize for any inconvenience caused". This does not indicate hacking, and might as well be technical problems.

    By the way, if you get banned from eBay, you can still log in, but it will say "Account locked" or "Account suspended". They don't delete them in a way that prevents you from viewing history about the acc.

    EDIT:

    Actually, there was another response:

    "Today, some eBay users are experiencing issues when signing in to the site. Based on our initial investigation, this appears to be the result of technical issues that occurred during scheduled server maintenance. It is only impacting a portion of our users; most eBay users are unaffected. We?re working to resolve this issue quickly and will continue to keep our customers updated. We apologize for any inconvenience to our users."

    Still can't spot any sign of hacking :p

    One of my 5 year old accounts now has zero feedback and my buying history was wiped out.

    Not panicked yet, they better back it up though
