Seems a bit strange, Trade Me is asking me for my email address and password when I try to access the site. I have been a member for several years.

I seem to recall they previously stated they would never as for such details online.

But what should I do ? The site looks legit, but somebody may be after my details!

Trade Me is currently out of action.

We apologise for the inconvenience. We'll have the site back up and running soon

The bastards, I have an auction finishing tonight.

I got in just in time then :D

I spotted some goods of interest to me that usually sell for prices in excess of $100 but they were posted in an unusual but still appropriate category and with a low reserve. The usual blood suckers missed it and I got the lot for $12, just before the site fell over, and that would have extended the auction another 24 hours.

I've been looking for these for some time but they usually go to the same few people who seem to be stockpiling and don't care what they pay. When the B's snuff it their families will probably dump the lot at the tip and they'll be lost to everybody.:groan:

Cheers

Bummer! I was just going to put my Radeon 4830 on for sale too.

Speaking of which, anyone want to buy it? :rolleyes:

Ahh, I'v had the site "remember" my details for auto log on. Its worked for several years now, but suddenly failed.

Oh well, bit the bullet and re entered the details and everythings fine now.

Thanks for reading.
