I received a very well done phishing email trying to get me to fork over my eBay information this morning. I did the appropriate thing and forewarded it to eBay so they could look into it as this one could have fooled some people. They responded within 12 hours. Prompt!

Of course, the stupid #%[email protected]!*s responded by resetting my password and sending me an email saying I may have been a victim of spoofing.

I'm sure glad they told me that. I would have never thought such a thing and it was a complete and utter coincidence that I forewarded the email to [email protected] [shake head]

Either stupid or lazily assuming you were too stupid to not get caught in a phishing scam. Or perhaps a stupid corporate policy that anyone reporting a phishing scam should have their password reset *just in case.*

Hurray! Stupid people are everywhere! [Applause]

P.S. Is that "good dead" vs. "evil dead"? [Wink]

I don't think it's corporate policy... I've forwarded e-mails to that address a few times before, and have never had my password reset.
