Supposedly Ebay Scam mail with a nasty virus attachment. Do not try to click on any part of this email as it is a picture (gif) & not text like it seems, so if you recieve this email, send it straight to EBAY.

Scams all over the place. Thanks Linda

Yes Linda. There are scams all over the place, but these ones are particulary nasty. They will not only get all your information from your Ebay account & any money owed to you, buy things with your identiy & get your credit card information to use elsewhere, but if you do not have a very high virus & internet protection system on your PC. It will be wiped clean.

So by the time you have managed to retrieve your information from your back-up disc's (we all back up our information daily, don't we?) Or tried to figure out whats important from your notes or partial saved information, your identity has been sold to someone in Eastern Europe & your credit rating, as well as your bank balance is zero.

These scammers & identity thieves are starting to work together, throw in a hacker as well & we all have big problems.

I got the EBAY phishing. I fill out the info with fraudulent names and call them every name in the book. Just like sending junk mail back in the prepaid envelopes with nothing in them. Give them a taste of their own medicine. By the way if anyone wants to add me to their friends list, feel free to send me an invite.
