I had my credit card info stolen from the Target November, 2013 breach. Thieves' charge your card a very small amount to test it. They charge about $1.50 from a bait shop in Louisiana, CC Company caught it.

 

After having it happen to me, I'm changing passwords right away from now on.

Ebay owns PayPal also. Better safe than sorry.

Be sure to log in to your account through the ebay.com or paypal.com websites. Scammers will often send and email asking you to "click this link to change your password". If you follow through with it that way the got ya!

I sent an email to eBay and paypal asking why they hadn't notified anyone and why we had to learn about it from outside parties. Still waiting for a reply! But that's par for the course for eBay.

I just checked and see nothing about this in my eBay messages inbox.

Same here but when I went to change the password: a message popped up that said effective May 21st passwords need to be updated on ebay.

Thanks for the heads up captdave.
