TKO Notice: eBay Wrong Password Notification & ID Verify - yes, it is a hoax!
6th December 2003

The ID Verify Service is being used to convince you its okay to supply your information ...

Being riddled with bad English should give it away but perhaps the mention of eBay's ID Verify service will convince many that it is real? It has even been compiled with text used in eBay's own description of the ID Verify service (with the mention of the $5 cost replaced with a 'free of charge' offer). Despite its flaws, this is a convincing email hoax and one which deserves a highlighted mention in our list.

The email indicates that three attempts have been made to access your account with the wrong password in an effort to urge you to complete the form provided. By adding the mention of the ID Verify service and eBay's own graphics (direct from their servers), scammers are seeking to add a further sense of authenticity.

The statement that 'you should never share your ID with anyone' is, of-course, entirely true although it is a big contradiction here. If you go on to complete the form, all the data is processed (and most likely captured) by the scammers using a PHP script located in migato.com's web space. You are not likely to see this though (unless you watch the browser address bar closely as the form is submitted) because you are seemlessly redirected to the genuine ebay.com sign in page without further ado.
