    ** eBay users beware, fake emails. **

    I've had 2 fake eBay emails checking my account log-ons this week. The emails wanted me to log-on using this special link. It asked for a ton of personal info. Just a warning ebay doens't need that personal info - one wanted my banking info, my mother's maiden name and my SS# ?!? I know alot of people aren't dumb enough to fill it out, but I thought I warn people. Just keep your eyes open for this garbage and don't give out any of your info.

    Ebay will never email you with a link to log on, never.

    Most places like Paypal and your bank are the same way.

    Do not reply folks!

    I've gotten a couple of these from PayPal also. Wants you to log in to your account and update all of your information. Do not do it! I know these e-mails look professional, but no company will send you an e-mail to verify your account info.

    Most of these scams are sent from overseas and you have no recourse if they steal your funds.
    Skol!
