Jacqueline,
You have our sympathy as we went through much the same experience, as Sandra knows.

The best advice we can give is to never reply to emails from ebay or paypal that ask for any kind of information. We never click on links in these emails either. Ebay or paypal will NEVER ask for personal info in an email.

If you do receive one of these phishing emails just forward them immediately to
spoof@ebay.com or spoof@paypal.com and you will receive confirmation quickly if they were or were not legit.

We also change our passwords at least once a month and use passwords that cannot be guessed, consisting of things that we can remember such as our Dads' middle name combined with our middle daughters' favorite toy, etc. , with one capital letter and a number or symbol thrown in randomly.

It's kind of a hassle to do this but better a small hassle than a stolen identity. <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />
