Please be aware that there is currently an email circulating asking for users to confirm their ebay/paypal account information. THIS IS A SCAM. Myself and others have received emails asking for account verification and since i don't even have a paypal/ebay account why did i receive an email?. From taking part in other computing forums I am now positive that this is a scam.

Remember that if you want to verify your ebay/paypal account details, type the URL in the browser. Don't click one from an email.

This is not new. I get at least two emails a day saying the same thing. I don't have an ebay account or a paypal account. All I do is forward them to [email protected]

and then delete them.

As long as you read and understand the advice given on both ebay and paypal secure sites you will not be caught by scammers. As pj123 I receive these daily and the odd bank one. I always sign into the sites through the address bar and never ever from an email link.

for a long time Mr A! but it's worth having annother reminder.

internet is like Forum Editor. You can never have enough reminders to help keep you safe!

I've also had several reminders,and also one saying that 'I'm in violation of my e-bay account'.What account, like Stuartli I don't have an account,and as MrA! say's you can never have enough reminders,always some unsuspecting person likely to fall for it.
