yah!!

I had something lke that happen to me but worse, with PAYPAL!!!

said something like" this is your invoice for the 30 rolex's you purchased' and I was like...wtf?!?!? omg..someone's using my paypal...and where it said "if you did not authorize this transaction click here to log into your paypal acct to report..blah blah blah"

and when I clicked on the link the url didn't say paypal.com it said some other stuff...good thing I didn't log in!

oddly enough, I got an email from paypal days later stating that never enter paypal through a link and to always type it in the address bar..

soo...I'd be cautious about things like that...these scammers are going for emotion...and the sense of panic like "oh my gosh! someone's using my account"...

Yeah...they could be trying to get your ebay password. Always log-in by going directly to the ebay.com or paypal.com page first!

Be very careful, a lot of these scammers are increasingly using different methods to get you to part with your passwords.
