Dodgy ebay email

  Iceman1978 16:13 10 Jul 04

I got a email yesterday which claimed I needed to go to the link & reinput my log in details. The email was a fake, but fooled me for around 10 seconds, as it looked quite realistic. Just thought i tell people as I think some people could be caught out.

I also received one of these e-mails asking me to submit my credit card and account details in a reply because Ebay were updating their records.

One PROBLEM though!

I don't have an E-bay account.

I had 3 of these last week. I always forward them to Ebay to investigate. Also, watch out for similar PayPal spoof emails, very realistic too.

thanks for the link, have subscribed to the newsletter.

now it would be nice if there was something similar for fraud or junk text messages, my son just got one and even though he did not reply reckons it charged a £1 on his o2 payg phone. My cousin (adult) also showed me one (a text, again o2) which offered to send him a list of dogging locations in the UK, I would not like my child to get a text like this or anything similar. Don't know if the network makes a difference, but I've been with vodaphone since March and not one junk text.

for the links and e-mail addresses, I will report these spoofs right now, hopefully it'll stop them.
