Real And Fake eBay Update Emails Confusing People
from the not-good dept
Last night I saw the news that eBay had sent out a number of emails to users saying their accounts had been compromised and they had to follow certain steps to reset them. My first reaction on hearing this was that it sounded exactly like the typical scam email to try to get someone’s account info. It seems that plenty of scammers thought the same thing and are using the confusion over the legitimate eBay emails to send out their own scam emails that look remarkably similar.
