    Greetings eBay shoppers

    I wanted to give you all the heads up on a new eBay Scam.
    Now this looks official, but it's not.

    How do I know? Well first off it says Dear Member. (They will always use your eBay screen name)

    Second I know that I have not sold anything in a long while.

    Now as to to go about handling this supposed "eBay Question", open up another window and check you eBay account/ My Messages to see if the question shows up there as well. If it does not show up then you know the email you just received is in fact Bogus. Report the email to: [email protected]

    If it does show up there and you know for a fact that you aren't selling anything then you need to contact eBay security center (your account might have been hacked) and change all your passwords real quick, also follow any steps that eBay security might have.

    Even if you are not to sure you can always report the email and have spoof eBay confirm if it's Bogus or Real. [email protected]

    As always stay safe while shopping and have fun.
