  1. Ebay/PayPal Fiasco

    Also, to add fuel to the flame. Moments after I got off the phone with ebay that night, went back to the computer to find I'd been hit with over 700 bogus spam emails from all over the place to include some 4-5 different languages. As I sit there stunned they kept pouring in till they got up top around 1200. I got disgusted and shut down. Next morning there was a total of over 1500 emails that had come in. I went to Comcast/Xfinity server where I can also check emails and they were there as well, of course. I called them explained what was going on and how to get rid of them without spending half the day doing so. The lady I talked with said she was going to forward my problem to the techs and they'd call me back within 24 hours. It wasn't that long. I got no call but went back in to find they had deleted everyone of those bogus emails off the server but IO still had to delete them off my computer. Wednesday and Thursday this week were not good days. No idea had that happened either. I've never got hit with so much spam emails since I bought my first computer.
  2. Ebay/PayPal Fiasco

    Indeed, but; I'm trying to understand still why a red flag didn't come up sooner with both ebay and PayPal. I used one address for years with them and then someone adds another one as Primary in another city 180 miles away. Did they think I was going to drive/fly that far to pick up a package? How would I know it had been delivered the day I went? that should have told them something. I'm not the only victim. The merchants that sold their goods to him won't be getting paid but shipped what he ordered to that address he had in my account. I have to wonder if I had ordered and paid for something that same day if it would have ended up in Nashville like the others did...probably so since it was listed as the primary address. I'm still curious how he got into my account in the first place but may never know that.
  3. Ebay/PayPal Fiasco

    I've been using ebay for years without issues...until this past Wednesday when they called me late that night. I knew it wasn't going to be good-it wasn't. Ebay kind of forces you to use PayPal as most merchants use or want it used to get paid. I never changed my password, secret questions or anything else. If there weren't things on there that are either hard to find or not at all I wouldn't be using ebay at all. I'm considering just closing that account anyway after this...getting too old for that kind of stress.
  4. Ebay/PayPal Fiasco

    Just a heads up for those that buy/sell on ebay and use PayPal. You may want to periodically check your address on ebay as someone could have hacked your account and added their address using your name to buy and have packages delivered to their address as the primary. Such as that happened to me just the other day. Wednesday night I got a call from ebay at 8:45pm and was asked if I had made any purchases that day. I told them no and hadn't in a couple weeks. Someone had bought a $815 camera, a $310 watch and an iphone for $513 using my account and their address. To add insult to injury he even purchased an extended warranty! Ebay told me they scrambled my account and that I needed to go in and change my password/secret questions. I also got in touch with PayPal who in the interim had sent me an email about my account being jeopardized. I had to change all the above at PayPal and also called my bank. Those three purchases had already been made and were pending pay via PayPal. I told them no, I had not made those fraudulent purchases. Long story short, check your address(s) on ebay. It could be someone added theirs using your name. Change your password at least every couple months with a strong one and alter the secret questions. The one that did this with my account had his items bought(courtesy of me) sent to an address in Nashville, 180 miles from here. I called the Nashville police department and told them the situation and gave them the address this guy had added on my account ...buyer beware. They filed a report but who knows how far it will go. I was on the phone two and a half days trying to get this all straight with ebay, PayPal and my credit union. Stressful, exasperating and a lot of unnecessary anxiety due to a thief. I think my days of buying off ebay are over.

    Hmmm...this could be chancy from what he wrote at the top. " MozBackup is not being developed anymore. There are known issues and there is no time on my side to fix all issues and develop new features. Use MozBackup only on your risk. Thanks for understanding. Source code is available on GitHub. "
  6. Ff Profile Move

    I decided I may want to change the look of FF on the W7 computer more like the one on Vista. I copied the FF profile on the Vista computer on a flash drive and dropped it into the profile of the one on the W7 machine. Problem is I don't know how to direct it now to point it to the one I want as the default. Easy way to do that? I'm hoping it'll work.
  7. Malwarebytes Not Functioning Properly

    There's an ongoing problem many people have with this last version me included. I've went back and froth with them via emails but nothing so far has worked. They wrote me a few days ago and asked if I had the latest build, which I figured was but; they added another pair of numbers and told me to install it over what I had. The version they gave was It worked temporarily until restart then the same old scenario all over again. I asked if it would work if I installed it on the Windows 7 computer and Ron said there should be no problem, "if it turns out to be an issue we can look and see if it's something easy to fix or not." I think I'm going to let well enough alone. I had enough problems with Vista and not going to th row a monkey wrench into the other computer. This is been going on months so, sayonara, MBAM.

    Earlier today I went to MBAM website and it seems a host of folks are having trouble as I have been. They need to get this straightened out. I did run t he FlashPlayer debugger but nothing showed up as being out of the ordinary.

    What puzzles me about this is no problem with the W7 computer upstairs using FF...no crashes and it's the same version of FF.

    I tried again today. I got to the website but again, when I tried the Search it crashed again. I hit F12>Console and this is what came up... This is a browser feature intended for developers.

  12. FF Crashes

    I didn't try searching for anything on CR's website, just to the main page, this is what I got using Vista today. Using FF on the W7 computer there's no problem. I didn't understand the Facebook Pixel Error-I wasn't on FB-not sure why that even showed. SyntaxError: expected expression, got '<'[Learn More] 1214646704@x14:1 SyntaxError: expected expression, got '<'[Learn More] 1214646704@x97:1 Facebook Pixel Error: Duplicate Pixel ID: 1656956127856744 fbevents.js:1:4063 Wootric: Warning: Created at invalid, expecting 10-digit Unix timestamp in seconds. beacon.js:4:8649

    I decided to see if I could access the site using the W7 computer upstairs using FF...no problem at all. Go figure that one. After I signed in typed in "Kitchen Ranges" and it took me right to it. With the Vista machine I never saw at the top of their site a place to sign in but I doubt that had little to do with it.

    I got this back from them..."We’re very sorry about the broken link within our Ranges report, and would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused for you. Please be assured that I have already notified the appropriate members of our Online Technical Staff about the broken link, and they are currently working toward fixing it." Then, they recommended using IE or Google Chrome. If there's a broken link I don't know why they'd think either of those would work. I'm not sure what sort of info you need, Broni but this is the link to the report. https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/21cc3c31-2def-46e5-8fea-a42572170322

    Nope-that didn't work, crashed anyway.
