    No, that's not quite correct. I tried it just now and here is my report:

    If you follow the above link and then click on a photo thumbnail, you will indeed be prompted to sign in (but only if you are not already signed in to eBay). Looking at the url, I do see .eBay.com in the url, in the right place, so it is indeed at the eBay domain. Nothing suspicious here.

    I then went to the main eBay website and clicked on "my eBay", which forced me to sign in.

    Then I went back to that Studebaker link and clicked a thumbnail. This time, since I was already legitimately signed in to eBay, it took me to the "Ask Seller a Question" screen. Again, the ebay.com part of the url looked good. Still nothing truly suspicious.

    This was just like the case of the red Lark the other day, where you click a thumbnail and land at the "Ask Seller a Question" page. So, there may be a glitch in the eBay system, or we have two sellers deliberately connecting the thumbnails to the "Ask..." page. But there appears to me to be no attempt here at hijacking a UserID and Password. The clue is always found by looking at the full url in your web browser's address window.

    What's going on here?

    There is a pretty little 48 Champion convertible on eBay, but everytime I click on one of the smaller pictures, I get the "Ask Seller a Question" form.

    Is anyone else having this problem? Never had this happen before.
