Funny, I haven't noticed any problems using it.  I suppose it depends a 
bit in which "community" you're interacting with on there, though.  Some 
categories of goods seem to be overrun with criminals whereas others are 
just fine.

Well, you were what they call "spoofed" - this is where email pretending 
to be from ebay, paypal, your bank (or any bank), etc., tells you go log 
in at a url they give you - the page you get *looks* like it's real, but 
it's not.  Sending such emails is called "Phishing."

Sorry to hear about your "accident"...
