    I received an email from Ebay . it was about a "new unpaid item"and Robert Phillips (sweetvacations-2005).
    I have never sold on Ebay and have never bought from sweetvactions-2005. The only thing in common is that my last name is Phillips.
    I have been fighting for the last hour trying to contact Ebay about this but without luck. Can you contact them directly? All I can find is automatic questions and answers that don't quite fit this problem. The only things that I have ever purchased on Ebay are fat quarters and other quilting items. Any ideas how i can resolve this?

    is it showing up on your My Ebay page, when you log in? If not, this sounds like a spam email, trying to bilk you for some money.

    Ignore it. Delete it. It's some kind of scam.

    Got to www.ebay.com and click on "community", top right, and do a search on "sweetvacations-2005"

    I had to enter a security number so I don't know if you will be able to view this, but these are the details I found: http://myworld.ebay.com/sweetvacations-2005

    Once you have signed into your ebay you will be able to contact him direct, hope this helps.

    When you responded to the email did you log in through a link in the email? if you did you might be in trouble. They now have your ebay login information and possibly Paypal. I would change your stuff ASAP.

    if you opened a new window and then went to ebay then you should be ok.

    With regard to your original question, I think everybody above my post answered it.

    Just never click on a link inside an email asking you to login into any account. EVER!

    Just ignore it, it is spam, I have gotten several of them, and just delete them from my computer. They eventually quit.

    This can not be repeated often enough.

    I had the same thing happen to me a couple of years ago. I contacted EBay to let them know. I also changed my password just to be safe. It was a scam.

    I have gotten dozens of these "phishing" emails, got caught ONCE, changed password immediately, no problems. They seem to have given up on me lately.

    I have gotten several of these emails -- they are from a hacker. Don't follow the links no matter how official looking or scary they sound.

    Everytime DH uses PayPal he gets a bunch -- some even look like they came from the place he was buying from. We just delete them.

    My husband had a problem with Ebay and could not find anyone to help him. He had to go thru PayPal to get the help. Give that a shot it might work for you also.

    I agree, I've had these a couple of times. Knew they had the wrong person, cuz I hadn't ordered anything from them. Then I just kept and eye on my account. No problems here after.
