Fake Ebay E-Mail

  1. Just wanted to warn people -- I just got a fake e-mail noting that my eBay account was going to be suspended. The people who send the e-mail try to get you to enter your account info to "fix" the problem, but than have access to your account. eBay security confirmed it was a fraudlent e-mail. Be careful with any e-mails from eBay!
  2. thanks for the heads-up.
  3. Thanks jayjay77 - and don't forget that any Ebay emails should also be in your messages box on My Ebay. If they aren't there - then they are fake.
  4. Thanks girl for the heads up!
  5. I got this email too... It was in my Ebay inbox from someone who had a question on an item for sale. The email said they tried to bid on the item, but couldn't because I was suspended. The link went to a page that looked like Ebay, and asked for my password, but I figured out right away it was a fraud. A few hours later, I got an email from Ebay saying that I probably got a suspicious email. BE CAREFUL!
  6. I haven't heard of that one! :cursing:
  7. Thanks dcgal! This subject comes up so often that I just thought it might be helpful if your excellent comment were repeated in big red letters.
  8. Thanks I also get fake e-mails for paypal to from time to time
  9. ^^Absolutely, maybe it should be a sticky at the top of the Ebay sub-forum saying this too!
  10. If you ever get a fake email, forward it to eBay at: spoof@ebay.com. They will confirm if it's fake or not.

    You can also do the same thing if you get a fake paypal email: spoof@paypal.com.
