    Thanks for letting us know. Also, never buy from people using Western Union. Ussually people sell stuff for a really cheap price, like cellphones and stuff, they sey and they get it from factories in europe and crap like that. Then, they tell you it is very safe to use Western Union, you can protect it with a password, etc... But it's all bull, so don't even bother with those kinds of people.

    Not really true, the only reason I was almost caught by this is because:

    #1. They completely copied ebays website, links, content, etc... I could even login to my ebay control panel using Their Website.

    #2. They were using an ebay subdomain name, so it looked real.

    #3. The email was Very well made, no spelling errors, copyright information, and links to anti-fraud websites.

    #4. They were using a secure SSL connection, even though the website was using a hoax script, it was still SSL (for their own good!)

    #5. Every link on their copy of the website, linked back to the ebays website information. Such as TOS, TOC, Copyright, contact, FAQ, EVERYTHING! - But it was all on THEIR website, but it still worked.

    If you are really a moron because you get tricked from all this, then you are telling me first time ebay and paypal users will know how to tell the difference from all of this?


    --------------
    Just remember this: PAYPAL WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR YOUR PAYPAL INFORMATION VIA EMAIL! AND THEY WILL CONTACT YOU USING YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME WHEN BEING CONTACTED! SAME WITH EBAY! IF ANYONE ASKS YOU FOR YOUR INFORMATION VIA EMAIL IT IS A FRAUD! AND REPORT/CALL/CONTACT EBAY/PAYPAL IF YOU ARE ASKED THIS BEFORE FILLING OUT ANY INFORMATION!
