dodgy emial from Ebay & I have no account

  Giggle n' Bits 00:08 18 Sep 04

I have recieved a email from ebay today asking me to update my credit card details within the next 48 hours or my service with them will be terminiated.

Erh I have no Account with them and have never joined.

Worrying thing is how they got my Emial address.

Also friend who does have emial who I mail often has mentioned this is a scam and they who ever the people are want you to transmit details to this website by filling in the card details etc.

So is there anything I can do about it or what should I do. As I often shop online for my business its a worrying thought.

Ignore it, don't reply to it.

It's just some low-life trying to steal your credit card details.

This has been going on for a while, yet people still get sucked in.

Never, NEVER, put your credit card details in an e-mail, they are not secure.

When shopping on-line, always, ALWAYS, look for the padlock symbol on any page you enter a CC number or other personal details.

I have forwarded as requested by ebay in the support section the mail in question.
