Another "Phish" Story

I received an email apparently from eBay asking me to update my billing records. Clicked on the link (clicking is not a problem, as long as you have good virus protection -- you do, don't you?), and got a very eBay looking web site asking me to log on with my eBay user name and password.

It is a fraud. The email was mailed from Korea, and the real internet address was registered in Korea. Had I continued, they would have had my eBay information and probably credit card information as well. There was not much there to make me suspicious.

Once again, beware of all emails asking you for any personal information. Don't take the "phish" bait!
