this is a new scam for me
« on: October 31, 2007, 01:46:55 PM »
This morning I got an e-mail from "eBay PowerSellers" congratulating me for making Silver.

Which I haven't, of course. The html e-mail looks like a legit notice (although I haven't seen one in a while so I'm not sure if it's an exact copy or not).

Here's what the link to join looks like (I broke it up, don't try to click!):

http://us.ebayobjects.com/
2c;15856424;11272814;e?https://home.comcast.net/~view.signin.ebay.com/ws/
signin.ebay.com-eBayISAPI.dll/eBayISAPII.dll-PowerSellersProgram-signin.ebay.com/

A quick look at the beginning of the URL and it looks like an eBay address -- but if you look further you can see it'll actually go to a site at comcast.net.

I get those emails all the time. And I don't even sell on ebay any more.
