type out ebay in your address bar and watch the address bar for changes. if its bliping in and out then re opens it may have given you another redirect. try it a couple times.

and watch the part up by the http:// if its got a extra character thats the redirect

I'll gladly direct you to the legitimate ebay website, but I'll need your DOB, SS#, mother's maiden name and credit card number to make sure you're who you say you are. kthx
