i'm new selling on ebay and i received a message from a potential buyer, but it was from his email addy and he sent it to mine. i thought ebay didn't give out contact info unless there was some kind of transaction between 2 people. also, i received a message from the same person and then when i went to look for the message it was gone on my email and i know i didn't delete it. i checked my trash and nothing. i don't know if i'm thinking too much or what, but i have heard too many horror stories about peoples accounts getting hacked, etc. i was curious to see if i could get his info and ebay gave it to me, but ebay emailed us BOTH stating that i requested his info. i never got an email if that's how he got my email. is this normal? how did he get my email?
