This one arrived last night, haven't seen it before, a slightly different approach. :)

It carries the "your registered name is included in the Email" phrase, but of course it isn't. :)

You may need to click on the image again to get it full size.

Hijo de puta! Well done Rolfw for spotting the phish. I know i wouldnt spot something like that, but i never bother with emails that are sent to me by ebay. I just read the subject.

I read them all because I trade a small amount on ebay, but ones like this tend to stand out, as I hadn't made a bid on the item in question, neither had anyone else as it happened. :)

It did spur me to log on to my ebay account though (by typing in the ebay URL to a browser, not by using the link in the Email), to check to see if my password had been compromised. :)

Have had another good one, it tells you that your account has been compromised by sources in Romania.

It quotes the instances and the IP addresses.

It asks you to log on using their link and change your password.

GOLDEN RULE: Always use the official page to log in to your account.

eBay or PayPal etc.

I think we ought to encourage people to post any ebay/paypal phishing scams they hear of in this thread.

LOL.... it's not rocket ;)
Simply hover the mouse over the 'reply now' to tell you where your going, I may be laughing but I know some so called 'intelligent' peeps that get drawn in!
Got to the site and input this popular username and password f@ckoff/scammer .... works for me ;)

No no, if you are going to go to the trouble of clicking the link, you're better off giving them something which looks more realistic, then they take some of their time trying to use it. :)
