    419 Fraud

    I was wondering if anyone has been sent emails about this just to warn people... It normally involves someone claiming they are from a foreign country who wishes you to be the benificiary of millions of dollars.
    If anyone has had similar experiences please post about it on here.

    I think everyone can put their hand up on that one. Nigeria, the land of fraudulant emails.

    Try searching the forums for spam emails, there's some real classics there.

    On a more serious note, ebay members beware..

    I was stupid enough to pursue a request for my bank details so I could repay my listing fees automatically (which I wanted to do anyway)..

    When I got to the crucial bit, I realized that the email sender name was Ebay.com and not Ebay... Basically an imitation email so someone else can get at my bank account.. Luckily I realized before it was too late..

    there has been alot of those ones aswell

    the biggest thing to look for is they usually ask you to click a link and give your details there, when you do click the link it will be some weird address, usuall ebay is ebay.com.au or ebay.com so there one is like d12//ebay something like that so yer guys beware!
