O/T - Creative scam e-mail! Be careful...

So I was checking my e-mail tonight and came to find a nice one from eBay. I thought it was legit until I went to the link. Man, they sure do want a LOT of personal info just to verify your account. Whatcha think, should I give them my credit card number, my SS number, my ATM pin #, my CVV2 #, along with my birthday? [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img] I hate people...

Wow,


If anyone actualy fills that out ... [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

It goes back to most large companies claiming, we will never ask to update your security information. Please make us aware of anyone that asks for it.


Thanks for the warning thou.

Re: O/T - Creative scam e-mail! Be careful...

I got a similar email a couple of weeks ago. I checked with ebay and their response was that they will NEVER send you an email asking for personal information. There was an article in yesterday's paper about ebay bidding and a part of that story repeated the same thing, ebay won't email you for info.

Re: O/T - Creative scam e-mail! Be careful...

I left it all blank and clicked submit to see where it would go, and it went straight to Ebay. I hope these people aren't around on this one much longer, but I know there will always be others.

Re: O/T - Creative scam e-mail! Be careful...

Not half as crafty as the lastest spoof claiming to be an "Update" from Microshaft containing the "latest patch"... comes complete with a fully functional copy of the w32.swen virus! I have the AV proggy set to quarantine ALL .exe files (among others) and grabbed all the inbound garbage before the SEUs got hold of it.

Only had 20 calls this morning from those *AT HOME* without AV wares claiming to have opened it! ID10Ts!!! [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img]
