    Ebay Warninng!!!!!!!!

    Well I was had by an email fraud to gain my password for Ebay. I am always very carefull about doing something this stupid but I got had. It all started off with an email from Ebay about being asked to be a power seller. It looked just like an email from ebay. So if you recive an an email from ebay wanting to be a power seller, make sure you log on to ebay to make sure it is letigment. After working with ebay I got this resolved fairley easy.

    e-bay has a lot of fraud. I just received a notice to change my password as somebody used my account to post a bogus vehicle. I drove to e-bay, just down the street and confirmed some ass hat did indeed get into my account. Grrrr

    They tried to sell a brand new Honda 4 wheeler. I tried to log on to ebay this morning and could not. So I did some checking to see what was going on, and sure enough some had changed my password, and all my other info. So I could not even recover my password, or the one that the thife used. The only email I resonded to that they could have recived my password was one about becoming a power seller. So beware Ebay users.

    Yupper and when you move your cursor over the link you can unusually read the real address at the bottom of your browser if you are using yahoo or hot mail, not sure about outlook. I used to get them all the time now they go straight to my spam folder. When reading the real address you now not to click on it.
