Ho Hum ..... just recieved this in my mailbox, thought i would reproduce it for you all......

You would think that these guys would check their spelling and grammar before trying to scam people, it's so easy to spot these days.....

Apparently 'Ebay needs a correct information from me' ....... do you think i should pass over 'a correct information' to them ? :rolleyes:

Here is the mail :-

Hi Howard,

I have been e-mailed this quite a few times. I also get one from pay-pal (or should I say someone pretending to be paypal!)

This thing is, they look so real. They even put the blurb in about never giving out your password to anyone. I bet hundreds, if not thousands of people have been duped.
Pasted from eBay, I suspect you knew this anyway.....

Protection Against Fake (Spoof) Emails
With My Messages, you now have a definitive, legitimate source for any communication from eBay that affects your account. Whenever eBay sends you an alert or message related to your account, it will be duplicated in My Messages.
If you get an email that looks like it’s from eBay about a problem with your account, or that requests personal information, look in My Messages. If the same eBay email is not in My Messages, it’s a fake. Please forward it to [email protected] or [email protected] for members in the Republic of Ireland.
But the point is they don't look real , the grammar is shocking , in every fake email i have ever had from scammers, there are always spelling and grammatical errors. Just read every one carefully instead of glossing over it.

Look at the above ^^^ 'ebay needs a correct information from you' , what sort of english is that ? :crazy:

When they get their spelling etc sorted out thats when we will need to worry .....
