I've been getting emails informing me that I should click on the link to update my eBay account information.

I didn't bite and forwarded the email to eBay's spoof email address and sure enough they mailed back that it was a fraud intended to access my account information.

Don't bite.

Hi Jim,

I recently did a thread on it - sounds like the same scam - here's the thread:

I was getting one every day from these jerks. I finally put blocking on their e-mail address.

I got a few from ebay as well. Recently I started getting them from Paypal even though I don't have an account with them. I'm also getting an infected email from paypal at least twice a day.

Ive been getting them from both ebay and paypal. Some look like the real stuff but I didnt bite. Just forward them to spoof@ebay.com or spoof@paypal.com...

I used to get these. The fraud/scam artists generally targets people who's user name is also their email address. Change your user name and the messages should stop. Mine did.
