At least it's new to me.

Got an email
says
Hi, I am very interested in buying the item you for sale on eBay, but dun't know what to think anymore. I saw the same item with the same pictures and description at a different seller. Please take a look : URL REMOVED TO PROTECT THOSE THAT MIGHT COPY AND PASTE IT
Please call me at : +492089107823. Thank you ! Richard

The url starts with http://cgi4.ebay.
looks good right?
BUT I am all ready logged in at ebay and when I copied the URL into an addy line it took me to a log in page!
After further looking at the URL given there is not even an item number within it!

DO NOT FALL FOR THIS!!

I have broken up the URL here - NOTICE the .com part
http://cgi4.ebay.
loggedin.webhero.com
/ws/eBayISAPI.dll/SignIn/authrequiredn_W11QitemZ180099995083QQcategoryZ14233QQzaZ235QcmdZViewItem.php


Just thought I might save someone from giving out their password!

Thanks, again, BT.

The scammers just don't quit, do they? We all must be continually on guard. We fell for one of those ebay email scams about a year ago, and someone started listing stolen golf clubs with our username. Ebay caught it within just a few hours because it was not our usual activity. I was really glad for that, and we learned a valuable lesson. Even some of the emails that are in your ebay email are scams. Beware.

BTW, have you been on any good hikes recently? Me neither. Ha, Ha. Wink
