Don't know how long this link will last. I just got this link in Email warning me to "update my account". It takes you to a site that looks like Ebay but isn't so they can steal your user ID. Most of you guys have heard/seen this one before.


Let's give these jerks some (phony) passwords. I think it would be good if we make then look real so they get to waste some time trying them - if you just type in an obscene user id and password they'll know it's someone that's on to them and ignore them.

Since we are off topic, could someone remind me of the cable supplier many members use for *bulk* cable. NOT, Part Express, can't remeber their name.

This is hilarious,


They are asking for everything. I'm surprised they didn't ask where I hide the silverware.

Ps. I hide my silverware in a watertight ziplock bag in the toilet of coarse.

LOL, I just paid attention to that second page!


I'll bet it cost them a hundred bucks (if anything) to send that E-mail out to a few million people. That link will probably go down in a few hours and by that time I'll bet you they'll have enough peopls info to make a few hundred thousand off the scam - maybe more.

They tried that one on me a while back. Best thing to do is forward the email to EBay Security.

Sadly, that link probably won't go down any time soon. These "phisher" sites (mis-typed "****es" accidentally, although it fits them well) usually come from Korea or China. Ebay might be good, but are they good enough to shut down a site in Korea or China? Well, it'll be harder than shutting one down in the U.S., which would probably just be a phone call.

Your information submited successful


Your submited information will be verified by eBay Accounts Management Departament in 24 hours.



I couldn't remember the password I used on the first page so I made it up again on the second page. Oh well. Maybe they aren't smart enough to check to see if they match.

I've passed the address onto some 'friends' in the network department who are much more savvey when it comes to wearing a black hat.


I suggest you all do the same; there's strength in numbers.


Unleash hell.
