    Re: ebay scam

    the "ebay" e-mail was obviously fake as i know there's no problem with my account whatsover at this time. also, when i get a message from ebay, it comes through both the ebay message system, & also through my home e-mail. this e-mail only came to my home e-mail address signaling a fake. i reported it to ebay...

    what's scarry is how authentic some of these e-mails look. pretty soon, you might not be able to distinguish the difference between fake & real as these scum bags hone their skills...

    Re: ebay scam

    In another thread I read about how some elderly people nearly got scammed. MSN has an anti-phishing toolbar available. I didn't try it, but it looks worth the effort to install it for someone vulnerable to these scams.

    well i use aol, & when i clicked on the fake ebay mail, i got a phishing notification from aol even though i didn't really need it in this case. it's a good idea that isp's provide this protection in addition to anti-virus & anti-spyware protection. you can't have enough of defenses these days. i just can't believe how many e-mails i get that are scams like "you won a prize, the nigerian scam, fake e-mails, ect. i guess it depends just smart the people are that are being scammed. just understand one thing & you will be o.k. so such thing as free/easy money. if something sounds too good to be true, or you won a prize without even trying, be suspicious...
