#1: OT Ebay Scam

Posted on 2006-07-14 18:41:49 by Bill Berckman

If you list a lot of items on ebay you might want to be aware in case
you get an e mail asking you what your buy it now price is. They ask
you to click on a link that looks like an e bay link, but if you check
the properties of the link, it is actually going to a foreign website.
They also ask you something about your paypal account. There was one
clue right away that this was a scam. It is the fact that I do not
have an e bay account. In the past I have received e mail to update
my paypal information which would also be fine except I also do not
have a payal account.

That practice is referred to as 'phishing', a cheap trick to get your
information. Don't be temped to follow it to see what happens, because
they could potentially run scripts that do damage.

If you really feel you have to check your account, don't follow their
link but type the url yourself.

One more thing you can always check the autheticity of the email
messages by looking at the headers of the email. Most often you can
find the real originating address.

Be safe,
