Default Phishing Scam about eBay?
Have you ever got any e-mail message from eBay or from your bank, claiming that you have an account problem. Its a type of 'phishing scam' intended to trick you into typing your password. My mailbox is already full of such scam mails. In such cases, I generally goes to my browser and type the site address manually.

A year ago, right after I opened an Ebay account, I found an email that I thought was from Ebay. Luckily, I didn't click on it because it was from criminals.

I still get the Ebay and Paypal phishing scam emails all the time. I don't think these people will ever stop. I simply report them and usually the email will stop from that address and start from a new one. Pathetic people.

Yes, I have gotten these emails also. I have gotten them from what appears to be paypal too. I never give out the information. I have reported it to paypal before in hopes that it can get stopped.

Yeah I get those sometimes. The emails are very well made and look legit. But , yes they are fake and try to get your account info.

eBay is not a scam, I don't think so it is!
