eBay Phishing


But.. I do not buy or sell, nor have I ever bought or sold, a thing on eBay... Hmmm…


Ah! A link! (which reads, “View the dispute thread to respond”)
So, I hover my mouse over the link and see that it leads to…

which traces back to “Cheap Web Hosting By Directi”.

Or.. I can just look at the WOT “red doughnut” warning.

Folks.. be suspicious of everything on the Internet. And then be suspicious again. Paranoid is good.

… another clue is, I think only spammers use “required” in e-mail subject lines..
