go to the link and see what they are asking for and then come back and ask that question.

thanks

EDIT: They are not a member of ebay staff and ebay staff never ever ask for any of that information. They are asking for it so they can steal your ebay account.

What does this have to do with cPanel?
Hey david ..you go ahead and hold them down and I will push the "ban" button. we should have done this a long time ago. Think how many crimes we can prevent ..just ban this from the internet and we will be fine.

Whe we get done i need someone to find the "ban" button for spam. Then we as web hosts can downgrade to PII and PII boxes and have overhead from the anti-spam resources we burn!!!

My guess is, somehow the original poster found out the site is hosted using cPanel software so they think cPanel is the host. It's getting quite common. People don't like something, find cPanel somewhere, and assume cPanel is the host.

Browny2k4, cPanel is just software used by many hosting companies. They have nothing to do with actual website content.
