I have a completely separate email account that I use for Ebay Purchases. Today I got a “real” email from Ebay congratulating me on opening my New Ebay account using my “working” email account.
Yes it was a real email. Somebody (the IP pointed to China) had “spoofed” Ebay with this email address. If you get a similar email take action! .. don’t just click on the links .. that could be the next step in their “process”… Note the User ID that Ebay has assigned to the new account . Then go to Ebay site .. look for the Contact Us tab and you can even have them call you at a number you specify. They will investigate and suspend the account .. removing you from any liability.
Once again Do not click on any links!!!! Report the Issue to Ebay.
