    Ebay:
    So I just sold an item and the buyer got an email from someone claiming to be me, and it's using an ebay system email. He says his paypal account was hacked and is offline so to pay for the item, the buyer must email him at a specific email.

    The buyer of my actual auction knew it wasn't me, and sent this fraudulent email to me. I have since sent a message to the guy claiming to be me, but now claiming to be the buyer. He has bought it hook line and sinker, and now I don't know what to do to get this guy busted.

    Not sure how this happened! I thought users on ebay couldn't just send messages to other users on ebay unless they were contacting through an auction and asking a question. I have no idea how this happened...

    Ebay's new policy is FUCKED! Please someone tell me how to report this guy.

    Is the buyers username close to his email handle?
