Thought I would share this.

I received this email over the weekend, as an active eBay user it was enough to make me look , it said a dispute had been resolved against me. Of course this made me want to look because I thought it would cause a problem with my account.

It’s only because I’m a geek that I stopped short of logging in to check the problem.

Of course the mail is a very sophisticated ‘phishing’ attempt, everything looked so real and because its negative the user wants to click immediately to log-in and resolve the problem.

If I had of logged in I would be submitting my details to an unknown third party giving them access to my eBay account.
