    Spoof eBay Invoices

    I've been getting alot of spoof ebay invoices stating that I had a made a purchase and click to pay now...They always look so official, they normally have a direct link to ebay with the item I won(even though I never even bid on it)

    I got one today and tried to copy and paste it but it has 44 images and I can only post 4

    Thats okay since all of us know about it

    The same thing has been happening in PayPal...

    But a careful look at the e-mail id from which the mail was sent reveals it all

    Thanks for sharing by the way

    The really smart scammers are also trying to target smaller programs where a user might have an account. Be wary and report all illegal emails on chargeback forum.

    I have been emphasisng a lot on this particular thing that people should not be allowed to have a PayPal adress that contains PayPal..or else there goes an easy target for spammers...

    I couldn't agree with you more...but unfortunately this is not how the internet works.

    I think the only way to stop these scammers is for everyone to pitch in some ideas. And try to make more people aware of such activities. The only way that they will prevail is for us to just let them do whatever they want. We should also do our part today.
