Yeah I got this one. Seeing as I have never had a dealing with ebay
there was no way any
account I had with them was nor about to try to correct anything. I did
as of late get some
strange phone calls from a number of companies claiming I was in arrears
on all sorts of things.
Only one valid, something had got mailed late. But I thought phising
only worked by email
when the person up to the nasty trick could do it and dissappear, but
that it didn't work by
phone, because I assume one has to have some bona fides with some bank
or clearing house
to do this..
