THIS IS URGENT NEWS ABOUT SCAMING!
Today i found a suspicious e-mail in my junk e-mail box, i went in it to see what it was. It turned out to be an e-mail saying one of my e-bay listings had been removed from e-bay because of breaches of ebay's rules. Then i thought whats it talking about? I always take care on my listings to not breach e-bay's rules, i would never dream of ripping off my fellow e-bayers. So as my heart started to race, thinking of what have i done to get this, i opened the e-mail. It then said on my spam e-mail protection program, that this is a reported website. I read on, it said that these e-mails are scams to get people to give them there passwords to highly private areas, like bank accounts. It also says they take the name of a trusting website's name such as e-bay to get people to give their personal details out,while the company has done nothing wrong. It also followed that i owe them fee's, that's when it hit me, i had done nothing wrong it was just a scam to get my money.
so in this case e-bay has done nothing wrong, someone has just taken their name and used it to get money out of people.
sorry i can't explain this very well.
BUT IT IS NOT E-BAY SENDING OUT THESE E-MAILS IT IS IMPOSTERS.
If you get an e-mail like this, do check it out because you don't know if you are in trouble or not, these e-mails are tricky to pick.
lucky for me my spam e-mail scanner stoped me from giving these imposters my details.
I HOPE THIS CAN HELP YOU.
