Jim, I've gotten this email several times, I just disregard it. I do think it is a scam.

I wonder what that IP is going to do to your computer when you log on to it... Anyone with a mule PC wanna try?

I've gotten that one and another one requesting my account info w/ credit card. I must say that it looked real official and the web page re-directs were done slick. I'm not a fool for that one.

The last scam email I got was in the form of an HTML email. It showed the user log-in page and told me I needed to re-log in to verify blah, blah, blah. It got the big delete.

Is there a place in eHay I can report these things to?

Al

I just got two tonight (lucky me!). One from [censored], and the other from Paypal, that asked for my credit card information. I just entered some "lovely" information, and sent it back. ::

Using visualroute.com, I followed it to Germany, where the packet loss prevents any further investigation.

The name resolves to E=bay, but it must get hijacked along the way.
