Default New eBay FRAUD.

Got a new form of FRAUD as an eBay message. The past five days they (the crooks) sent me a "Daily Status" of my running bids. But the item was done at March 11 so that was strange for me. Than I got this message and when you click the "Click Here line" in the message you will see what they want . Looking to the address it's a German address, when I did an ID check I found 4 or 5 addresses in Germany. Second the address has not the HTTPS in it.

Exclamation Re: New eBay FRAUD.

I just got one today, stating my Ebay Paypal account needed updating - funny thing though, I don't have a paypal account! I forwarded it to Paypals spoof report site.
