More phishing eBay emails...

Seems I get about 3-5 of these a week any more... Never click on a link within an eMail purporting to be from eBay, copy and paste it into a text editor and make sure it's not routing you to an anonymous ip address in this case: ... If you do and fill out the form as directed some crook somewhere will have your Credit Card and the ability to bid on auctions for you. Isn't that nice of them?
