eBay Email ID 11548

Another eBay phishing scam, this time instructing the user to confirm his/her account. Everyone should know by now that eBay does not send e-mails like this, but it is quite obvious that people still fall for these scams, this is why the scammers continue to distribute them. Once people start to use common sense and become more vigilant and attentive while reading their e-mails, we should see a decline in phishing scams like these. Every link in this e-mail contained a rather obscure phishing link, the most obvious sign that the e-mail is fraudulent.
