Ebay email scam beware!!
Got a fake email pretending to be from ebay to update my password. All the logos and stuff looked realistic and got given a link to site pretending to be ebay to make the update which also looked identical to the ebay site and even had the ssl securtiy logo in bottom corner.
If it wasn't for the sh1t grammer in the email I may of gone ahead with it. The address it came from said email@example.com which at first made me think it was legit.
Just wanted make sure everyone i aware of these email as it would be easy to go ahead with it if you weren't concentrating.
Here is a copy:
"firstname.lastname@example.org" <email@example.com> Add to Address Book
