I got an email that appeared to be from Ebay. It was titled SECURITY UPDATE and asked for my login and password. It looked so real. It even had links to ebay like SAFE HARBOR and FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD. But it was a password stealer, I fell for it for a second and then immediately changed my password. I contacted Ebay. It is a scam. It takes you to an IP address with an empty window then the phrase "OPERATION COMPLETE" pops up.

No kidding... I recieved one of those things about a month ago! I was wondering what they wanted exactly (note that ebay NEVER has contacted me before), so I shot them an email back inquiring as to what they SPECIFICALY wanted and why they needed that. I never heard back from them. Glad I did not give them anything. phew!!!
