Last week I think it was JOAT that posted a warning about a ficticious eBay
email that asked him to log into his account to "verify" it. It was a scam
from someone trying to get his credit card info. I get these all the time
too as I assume most of you do, but the one I recieved today just seemed too
funny not to share. Below is the text of the note. They were able to get
about every other word right.
I got the very same one. Sent it to Citibank with the notation that it
was undoubtedly the ugliest spoof that I had ever seen.
It is a sign of the times that so many web businesses have email addys
specifically for sending in ficticious requests for "verification". Sigh.
