Can you share a link to the fake sale post?
Request you to please reset your password and enable 2 Factor Authentication.



.
@Nikhil after login there was a pop-up advising 2step verification and directed me to password change but i did not see any option to enable the 2 step verification in account details. Can you pls walk us through step by step. I have just downloaded the google authenticator app from playstore. Thanks rgds Sean

Click your username on the top right
Click on "passwords and security"
Click on the "Change" link next to "Two-step verification"

You will get three options i.e. verification via app, email or backup codes.
Click on Enable button for verification by app

Go into the Google Authenticator app and scan the QR code.

I went through Authy. Reached a token number. This keeps changing.
Can't figure out how to proceed further.

If you want to get a dual authentication activated - please download the Google Authenticator app. Once you follow what Nikhil said - it should be easy from there.

If somebody tries to access your account from a new device, they would be asked for this authenticator code, which they will have no access to, so they will not be able to log in. Please do enable dual authentication on all your email accounts too, as that makes things a lot safer!

Even in Google Authenticator, I get this 6 digit code.
Whar is to be done with it?
the 6digit code keeps changing as you'll see by the timeout rotating dial on the top right of the google auth app. simply enter the code in hfv and that's it to login successfully.
