SERIOUS Ebay warning!!!!

Bit of a coincidence that after stopping some scumbag trying to sell an outboard I get an email from ebay saying my account has been used fraudulently and I have to re enter all my credit card details!

It looks so genuine and even I was nearly taken in - until it asks for my PIN number!!!

This link shows what I am on about

http://www.millersmiles.co.uk/identi...ent_Notice.php

So please be WARNED!

Whatever you do don't go to the link in the email as they will get your account info - if you have go in via main ebay site and change all your passwords etc - inc paypal

This looks like another one that could be ending early - No Reserve.

Outbid at 51

Well that shows you how much cash I have!!!

I might bid again - but the current bidder is another porcelain dealer - stinks of being "ringed" (IMHO)
