    Cream Legbar eggs can be a little difficult to see inside, unless they are not fertile, in which case you will see all the way through. Not all eggs on ebay are dodgy. You just have to do your research and find a seller with good feedback. Bit like me really. themadchickenwoman on ebay.

    A WORD OF WARNING ABOUT EBAY.

    Someone sent me question regarding an item on ebay.

    The question (SEEMED) that was relayed from my ebay account to the seperate email address (AOL) that was linked to ebay account.

    THe question regarding the item was nothing to do with me (asking about payment for little girls shoes - all seems innocent enough!)

    When you click the 'Respond now' link in the email (a big yellow button) it takes you through to the sign in page of ebay and you have to enter your user ID and pass.

    BUT! you do not really go to genuine ebay (it is cloned)
    THIS IS A PHISHING SITE.
    IT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE EBAY except it has a catch line saying 'back for more fun' or ' room for one more' (that's the p*** take)

    THe only way you can be safe from this type of hacking is

    NEVER RESPOND TO QUESTIONS REGARDING EBAY FROM YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT. ONLY ANSWER QUESTIONS THAT GO DIRECTLY INTO YOUR EBAY ACCOUNT.

    NEVER EVER USE THE SAME PASSWORD THAT YOU USE FOR EBAY AS YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT.

    Make sure that when you sign into ebay that it has the padlock icon next to you browser.

    Once the hacker is into your account, they can change all of your personal details - and by changing your password and secret question it locks you out of your ebay account.
    Ebay are useless in resolving the issue becuase you can access your (now locked!) account!

    It took two solid days to make sure my paypal account was safe.


    Please, fellow chuckie members, take great care.

    Hope this helps,

    Wendy.
