E Bay scam ~ account suspended ~ be careful

  1. Please be careful, there is an email being sent out which looks as though eBay has sent it. This happened to my OH's daughter yesterday.

    Please DONT click any links, if you receive the email, please forward it to spoof@eBay.

    Stay safe.

    This looks real but I would be very cautious about what you do after receiving the following message from eBay!!!
    I received this email this afternoon. The only problem is that I have never been or applied for an account with EBay!..Dr. T(Dick)

  2. Yes, these spoof emails have been going around for many months.. the scammers are very tricky~ You'll get them from "Paypal" too..
  3. I get these about 3-4 times a week plus others from fake paypal. ALWAYS forward them to spoof@ebay.com or spoof@paypal.com and don't ever reply or click on ANYTHING in the email. those jerks! I hate that ebay has become like this!
  4. Also make sure to check your ebay account to see if it was sent to you.
