Something weird happened to my auction - the vane got bid all the way up to 3150.00 (which was great but unexpected) and then eBay canceled the whole auction saying that one or more bidders were using accounts that weren't theirs or something... I thought something was strange when one eBay member contacted me saying that he's already paypal'ed me the money before I had a chance to figure out what the shipping would be - only thing was, he wasn't the winner of the auction! His message linked me to what looked just like the PayPal log-in page, but usually my user name and password comes up automatically on my computer, also the URL was different than I'm used to seeing - anyway to make an already too-long story short, my real PayPal account didn't have the money in it as I was told... I think someone was attempting to "phish" me...Here is part of the explanation from eBay...

The results of the following listing(s) have been cancelled due to bidding activity that took place without the account owner's authorization:


We have cancelled the listing(s) to maintain the integrity of the eBay site, your account, and the bidder?s account that was accessed. We are working to restore the bidding account to its rightful owner, and we are working with the account owner to prevent any additional unauthorized activity. Since the account owner did not initiate these bids, all fees resulting from the listings in question will be credited to your account within 7 days. If you do not see the credits posted to your account after 7 days, please feel free to contact us through?Contact Us? in our Help section.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to automatically relist these items for you. Instead, to relist these items you will need to start from the beginning of the listing process, either through the "Sell Your Item" process or through your third party listing service. We know that this is an inconvenience and we apologize for the negative impact it may cause you. We are working on tools to allow you to relist your items without starting from the beginning, but they are not available at this time.

Do not respond to this email, as your reply will not be received. If there are issues that have not been addressed by this message, you can contact us by clicking the "Help" link located at the top of most eBay pages and selecting "Contact Us" from the menu on the left hand side of the page.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
