Interesting Site - eBay Scams


A BAL-enced Life!
Dec 6, 2005
Don't know about the rest of you, but I have recently been receiving a *glut* of scam/spoof emails related to eBay (and/or Paypal).

One of the problems with a Blackberry, is that you have to scroll through so much before you get to the "heart" of the email. Not that I'm not cautious ... I am, but as I have had a number of items up on eBay as of late, I don't really want to even bother with ones that I know are scams.

I got an email ... supposedly from eBay (seller ID: x removed for privacy x) re: Item # ...

Well, it looked suspicious to me, so I decided to do a Google search and 'lo and behold, came upon this site which identifies a bunch of scams - and not just eBay:

purportal.com : last 10 spams

As I looked through these, I saw a lot of other ones (WINNING NOTIFICATION) that I've gotten as of late. Thought it would be a good idea to pass this on to the rest of you; you might also want to let your friends/family know as well (I'm always amazed at how naive some folks can be!).
