Security breach n Ebay

I was interested in a van on Ebay earlier today, I asked for more pictures, and I got them about an hour ago via Whatsapp, Ebay gave my mobile number out with my outgoing message.

I am awaiting their response as they say this can't happen, I've sent them two screenshots of two message to the seller, both have my mobile and a landline number I had when I first joined Ebay

That's quite alarming Kev.

Let us know what they say...when/if you get a response.

Your in good company Kev. Boris has had his phone number posted for all to see.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

File a formal complaint with the Data Protection organisation but do it URGENTLY, ideally within 72 hours of discovering the breach;

https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations...data-breaches/

Scroll down that page, to the “At a glance” sections some way down.

It is a serious breach of your personal data, it needs responding to in that manner, DO NOT WAIT FOR EBAY TO GLOSS OVER IT.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I followed through from that page, with the link at the bottom and putting in what I suspect would be your answers eg the organisation has shared your data with someone else, they have responded but not with a “full and final” response and end up at this page;

https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/...ncerns-report/

Interesting exercise as it is not something I have ever tried before, needless to say I have not lodged it as against fleabane, or any name whatsoever as I do not have such information 😊

I hope that you do get some sort of explanation, it’s not from a company that you have ever been in touch with before is it ?

No, it was just a request for pictures of a van we were interested in, the wrong layout for us but a nice van.

I'm not sure there is much point in my persuing it or not to be honest.
