Oh no! My account is locked from ebay (again)!

How odd, considering I don’t have an ebay account as far as I know of. Yet, I get this email once a week!

If at this point you don’t know what a phishing scam is, you’re hopeless.

  1. Agreed!
    All one has to do it mouse over the link and the status bar at the bottom will show the real link. I forward these kinds of emails to ebay all the time.

  2. Yup!
    And I see this on PayPal now.
    “As part of our ongoing effort to enable PayPal users to protect themselves from spoof (fake) websites, we’ve developed Account Guard, a new feature on the eBay Toolbar that identifies when you are on an authentic eBay or PayPal website and warns you when you are on a potentially fraudulent website.

    eBay Toolbar is a free, downloadable tool that will help protect your PayPal account.”

    Download the eBay Toolbar with Account Guard now by visiting the toolbar page at http://www.ebay.com/ebay_toolbar.

    Sounds like a good idea!
    I hope these Phishing scam artists do hard time in Club Fed! I hate them!

  3. Well -e- at least it wasn’t one of those e-mail messages telling you that the author is some heir to the fortune of a Ghanian King, and that if you send them your bank account you will be sharing a shit load of millions!

    How you doing dude?
