A couple of weeks ago I got an email (supposedly) from Paypal, saying that there had been some unusual activity on my account, and asking me confirm that it was me doing this activity. There was a list of what was happening, and it appeared that someone in Poland and Bulgaria was trying to access my Paypal account. The email said my account would be suspended if I did not reply to the email. Anyway, me being the doubting Thomas that I am, I ignored the email and the links on it, and copied the email to Paypal, but actually logging into Paypal, rather than using the link on the email. Paypal were good enough not to bother to reply to me, but seeing as my Paypal account didn't get suspended, I took it that the email was fake. Must I must add, it was VERY official looking, with all the right banners etc. Anyway, on Sunday I got an email from Ebay, saying that someone had tried to change my password and asking me to contact Ebay. Again, the email was very official looking, with all the right banners. Again, I ignored the links on the email, and logged into Ebay myself, and forwarded them both the Ebay email, and the Paypal one. Ebay wrote back to me yesterday confirming that both emails were fake. So anyone using Ebay/Paypal, be very very careful. I must stress that these emails look very very genuine. It is only because I am such a doubting Thomas that I was suspicious. I am sure loads of people have been caught out.
