Alert! *Another* E-bay scam.KG 361

If you recieve an e-mail allegedly from e-bay with this in the body of the e-mail, IT IS A SCAM. I got one today anmd since it asked for passwords I was suspicious. E-bay just confirmed it. Here it is;

Dear sir/madam.

Two days ago someone tried to sign in with your eBay user and the wrong password ten times, and there are two posibbilities:

1.You forgot your password.

2.Another person tried to acces your account without authorisation. That's why you have to enter your eBay user name, eBay password, and the mail password so that we could investigate this problem.

Important: All this process will happen through our secure server.

Thank's for understanding.

there are some bad scams out there, but that's one of the worst that i've seen. i'm sure there's someone out there that will fall for it though.

"thanks for understanding".... too funny.
