ebay uk problem

Dear eBay Team, My name is Martin from London and I have lost 8300 pounds on ebay.co.uk after purchaseing a camper. After further investigation I found out how the scammers operate. They steal ebay user accounts, the username and the pasword of ebay members. In order to by pass your security, when they steal the accounts they change the secret question and secret answer of the account. After minimum 8 days they use the accounts to place fake listings, when your system ask for the security answer to the security question, they enter the answer that they have entered when they changed the secret question and answer. Please change your system because they are placing at least 500 fake listings every day on ebay.co.uk. Here are some exemple of ebay listings and ebay accounts with this bug: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/underteige1/m.html?item=152249867503&hash=item2372cc9cef%3Ag%3AQIAAAOSw8gVX4mat&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/twotonerobes/m.html?item=232090574529&hash=item3609ad1ec1%3Ag%3Agk0AAOSwPCVX4t6H&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/smalsia/m.html?item=112144548260&hash=item1a1c5601a4%3Ag%3ABFcAAOSwzaJX4tzF&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/warriorbrookes/m.html?item=142125195826&hash=item2117526232%3Ag%3Ao3sAAOSw8w1X4x1R&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/jojo-lou08/m.html?item=232090881308&hash=item3609b1cd1c%3Ag%3AqykAAOSwmLlX4z3l&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/binojmp/m.html?item=262636630836&hash=item3d265cf334%3Ag%3AwesAAOSw8w1X4w1o&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/tclegg1992/m.html?item=142125311871&hash=item211754277f%3Ag%3AsUAAAOSwLnBX40s3&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Thank you, Martin

Martin, you'll need to communicate this security breach to eBay's customer support, not here on the developer forums.

I already sent them a couple of emails, got in contact with them on the live chat and they told me on the live chat that I need to call a number. Anyway, this is frustrating, I don't understand what they are allowing this. Maybe someone who view my post, will be able to know who to contact from eBay to take some auction regarding this security breach!
