Hi, I have been using Ebay for ages and have just received an E-mail saying someone has used my ebay account to make fake bids. And for security reasons I am required to verify my ebay account and there is a link to press. As there has been no bids made from my account I am inclined to think this is a fake email. How can I check to see if it is real or not? As it says if I don't verify my account then it will be cancelled. Help please from anyone. Thanks. Raquel.
It is almost certainly a hoax... its called "phishing" and its the result of crooks trying to collect your user name and password .... see click here for more information on these spoof emails.... If in doubt, forward the mail to [email protected] and follw their advice
Just had email back from ebay it was definately a fake. It would be so easy to be taken in by the fake emails. Thanks guys for confirming my suspisions and telling me where to report it to and putting my mind at rest. Raquel.
