In an audacious feat, someone posing as approximately 1,200 different eBay users posted credit card information to eBay's Trust & Safety forum. For the time being, eBay has suspended access to the forum.
In a statement on the site, eBay insists that the credit card information posted does not match the accounts on record for those individuals. eBay further believes the postings were part of a hoax. That could explain the mismatch between the account information and the credit card information.
