The ebay scammers are at it again
« on: December 23, 2006, 08:46:36 AM »
I got an email from an "Ebay seller" telling me he just shipped my order(which I never ordered). Any link on thier Ebay page leads to an Ebay credit card "verification" page to include the pin numbers. It looks real nice with all the Ebay colors and stuff, sneaky bastards. I would like to find these guys, I have lots of places to hide thier bodies here in Wyoming, LOL

Whenever I get these supposed eBay e-mails, I forward them to Believe it or not, they actually do something about it. I've seen accounts turned into "no longer a registered user" and I've also seen listings pulled. eBay used to be a great place to buy and sell. Now, it's full of scammers and spammers! :(
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left!  :shock:
