Please WARN as many people as possible about DEVIOUS ATTEMPT to try to EXTORT YOUR MONEY AND YOUR IDENTITY!
The thieves are pretending to be from Ebay and want you to fill in ALL of your personal information. They ARE NOT associated by Ebay in anyway.
I know that there are many people who will be deceived by these swindlers. They are not only trying to trick you into giving them your bank and credit cards numbers and passwords, but are also trying to get your Social Security and Drivers License number. They are trying to fool you into giving them your ENTIRE LIFE'S INFORMATION, which makes it all the more treacherous.
When I received their email and I clicked on the link they wanted me to go to, I choose to fill in the form with FALSE information about myself, so that they will waste time in verifying all of my documents. After I did this, they had me click on a button, which took me directly to the REAL URL of Ebay.
I will not add the link they sent me to, this is pieces of the information their form asked for. Again, please warn family, friends and anyone who reads your journal.
