Ebay Scam or Confirmation of Account Information
Have you received the letter
from Ebay asking you to
confirm your account information? It looks legal. It sounds legite.
It is a fraud.
Sometimes it is difficult to know what is real and what is not.
In the case of the Ebay letter, they ask you to click on the link
provided, but look close. The words that are the link are not the
link at all. It actually takes you to a site set up by thieves to
steal your identity. While you think you are logging into Ebay's
site to confirm your account, you are actually logging into a computer
and giving your information to them.
There are many variations to this scheme. Please be careful. Never
give out information to anyone unknown.
Remember, reputable companies will NEVER ask you to provide security
details via such means - if in doubt, be safe and ask first.
