I received an email from 'ebay' today saying that my account has been accessed from a foreign country and has therefore been temporarily suspended. I was directed by the email to follow a link to verify my identity.

This is clearly a scam trying to get people to give up their Ebay ID & Password along with CC information. You can see that the site address is outside of Ebay and not ot mention I confirmed with Ebay that they would not ask for such a verification. Additionally, my account has not been suspended and is working fine.

If you have received a similar email, please be careful as it is a SCAM! Thanks for reading and stay safe 8) .

Hey, that's a great post! To help make people aware never to click on those sort of links in any emails, even if they do look authentic.

Always go into your account via your saved favourites link.... to verify anything you're not sure of.

Ebay has its on email system that you can access right from your Ebay account. Never reply or open anything outside of Ebays own mail service. This was established mainly to protect its users from spoofs like this.

Another scam to be aware of ... the emails from PayPal stating something similar to the 'ebay' message.

2 big giveaways ... something will be misspelled in the heading and the name and, even if hidden, you can just hover your mouse over the 'click here' and read the real url of the destination.

It also helps when the email that receives this junk is NOT the email that is assigned to the paypal or ebay account!!!
