dodgy emial from Ebay & I have no account

  Giggle n' Bits 00:08 18 Sep 2004

I have recieved a email from ebay today asking me to update my credit card details within the next 48 hours or my service with them will be terminiated.

Erh I have no Account with them and have never joined.

Worrying thing is how they got my Emial address.

Also friend who does have emial who I mail often has mentioned this is a scam and they who ever the people are want you to transmit details to this website by filling in the card details etc.

So is there anything I can do about it or what should I do. As I often shop online for my business its a worrying thought.

You could forward it to [email protected]. I've been getting these e-mails a lot lately and the appear to be a phishing scam.
E-bay reply saying that these e-mails do not come from them, thank you for forwarding them, so they can deal with the matter. Not sure if they succeed in catching the senders though

Ignore it, don't reply to it.

It's just some low-life trying to steal your credit card details.

This has been going on for a while, yet people still get sucked in.

Never, NEVER, put your credit card details in an e-mail, they are not secure.

When shopping on-line, always, ALWAYS, look for the padlock symbol on any page you enter a CC number or other personal details.

Some cretins out there eh!

I have forwarded as requested by ebay in the support section the mail in question.
