Sorry if re-post, but thought i'd warn people.
I just got an email from a ebay member stating that they had tried to pay me via paypal twice for an item I'd apparently sold them, and it wouldnt let them, it then had a hyper-linked item number that when I clicked on it out of curiostity took me to the sign in page, After closing that window I did a search using the item number, and surprise surprise it dosent exist.
This is by far the best scam i've seen so far from them...and if I had have been selling anything I probably wouldnt have thought twice about signing in using the link from the email

I always use eBay toolbar - highlights scam log-in sites, plus you can report them in a click or two.

When you hoover your mouse over the hyperlink, be sure to check the bottom left in IE, and see the true address before clicking.

How's that done then? Does it start sucking the screen? Do I dare go further with the questions Stu :p?
