    Ebay Issue

    I'm getting emails from "ebay" titled "Question From Ebay Member" The header says its from "Ebay <[email protected]>" At first he asked about the "item" I have for sale. Next he said he sent the money. Now he is saying he's calling the police unless I respond. I have no items for sale and I haver never listed anything on Ebay. So I'm sure this is some phishing attempt. I tried to forward it to ebay, but when I forward it, all that gets forwarded is a random list of words. Is there any way to do a screen capture or something so that I can forward it?

    Thats a scammers attempt to get your password.

    If you hit "print Scrn" on your keyboard then open up MS Paint go to Edit and then Paste and the image will appear. Just save it as a .jpeg and you can attach it in an email.

    It happens to me 5 times a day! I dont even bother sending them to ebay anymore.

    Anwyway your are supposed to copy the header and forward the email with the header to [email protected]

    If you are using outlook, to get the header, highlight the email, right click then properties, then details. Copy that info.

    it happened to me twice someone hijacked my account and listed a 05 RXT both times, you need to change your password on EBAY and your email account that is tied to your EBAY account. I talked to EBAY and they told me that people get into our email accounts and get information this is one way they can hijack our EBAY accounts
