This morning DH had an email inquiring about his ebay listing. It provided a link to an ebay page, complete w/ logo, ebayer ID and Item #. Hubby was puzzled as he had no current items for sale, but being the smart cookie that he is, he went to ebay to look up this seller, instead of clicking on the link provided. As you guessed, there was no such seller and no such item. He forwarded the email to EBAY and the confirmed that, indeed, it was a scam.
We're figuring that had he clicked on the link, that would have enabled the scammers to set up auctions/scams in hubby's name.
Those punks are so darned smart! Imagine if they used their skills for good. We would live in a perfect world, sigh.
