    Exclamation WARNING! E Bay scam

    I got an e mail this morning, supposed to be from E Bay, saying that my account details needed to be updated and my E Bay account was suspended until I clicked on the link and supplied the info requested. If you receive an e mail like this, DONT reply, click any links or anything. I was suspicious and forwarded it on to E Bay who confirmed it as a scam.
    Beware all you E Bayers, some ******** is after your money!

    Its the usual type of thing. Log in via the normal way and DO NOT follow any links in the email. If you have messages or need to take action it will be there. I get these about 2-3 times a week.

    I always check the properties of the mail sender to see the path of the mail. I have had one from every bank this week saying i have to update my records with them to continue banking online. Even banks i have NEVER had an account with want me to do this

    Funnily enough they have all come from the same source.
