    They probably got your details from ebay.

    There are so many cheats, thieves and scammers on there.

    Thanks folks.
    Your the best!!

    Nah they send them to everyone regardless of whether or not people have paypal they send me different bank ones when i dont even have a bank account lol.

    Usually if you put your curser over the link it shows you the actual link at the bottom of the page.


    I sometimes think that there are far too many criminals about.

    What is wrong with people, I don't work and I am entitled to zero from the government.

    So I sell Avon to friends and do a bit of ebaying.

    Why can't people do something more honest with their time.

    it can sometimes be scripts people have written to pinch email addresses ... so i wouldnt take it personally. just recognise it and report it to the phishing dept as they will try to trace where that link goes to, who owns it etc. delete the phish email and dont click on any links there.

    I always hover over any email links, or links on websites, this then shows up on your status bar thinggy, bottom of page..
    You can then check to see if it's the link you're expecting, or if it takes you somewhere else....
    Then delete if you decide against opening it.
