Contact Ebay immediately, report the scam auction, alert the high bidder that it's a scam if you can?

I was going to say you are supposed to contact Live Help at the ebay if your account is hijacked but when I went to the link it says...

"Thank you for contacting UK Account Security Live Help. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, our Live Help service is not available at this time. Please contact us via our email webform and we will gladly assist you further. Please also visit our Safety Centre for information about account security and safe trading on eBay."
