New e-pay scam: I just got an email from someone who appeared to be asking a question regarding the shipping charges for an item to California. In it was the normal Respond Now button that would take me to my e-pay account. Since I’m in the US, and the shipping charges for all my items are in the listings, I double checked the item number and not only was it not one of my items, it wasn’t even a legitimate item number.

In addition, most of the time the sender of one of these will appear as “epay member:username” but in this case it was only “epay member.” Other than that the email looked just like the legitimate ones.

BE CAREFUL, folks. These guys are getting worse. This one almost got me.

Yes, thanks for the heads up. Remember, though, legitimate e*ay or paypal emails will ALWAYS use your real name.
When in doubt, forward suspicious emails to
[email protected] or [email protected]
Always good info, also any email from e-bay will appear in the My Messages section of your My E-bay page. If it's not there, it's not from E-bay. It's that simple.
