" eBay requires correct credit card information in full each month on accounts
with balances of $1.00 or greater and if your account becomes past due. We are unable
to verify or authenticate your credit/debit card information on file with us. " ...
This forged eBay email contains two disguised links which will
lead your browser to forged web content which is hosted at a bogus eBay domain...
ebayco.org does not belong to eBay Inc., although the registrant
information has been fraudulently composed to imply that it does. This particular
domain resolves to web space operated by a client of Pegasus Web Technologies
in the US (eBay use their own servers). Its very worrying to see that a domain
has been registered with eBay's contact information - internet users should be
very wary of what they believe when conducting a whois lookup - don't just look
for registrant data, look and see what nameservers they are using as well, and
see if the nameservers resolve to the correct web space/servers.
If you have received this email, please remember that it is very
common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly
different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different
provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common
place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first,
although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
