PC: eBay Fraud Alert

Many of you, like me, may have received a message this morning purporting to
be from eBay and asking for billing information.  This is a VERY
sophisticated effort that looks just like the real thing.  As you probably
know, the earlier frauds asked you to reply to a message with your credit
card information.  This one asks you to go to a web site that spoofs eBay,
i.e., http://www.ebayupdate.net/.  While many of the links in the message go
directly to eBay, the credit card info goes to a link that is not one listed
on eBay's web site as one of their addresses.

I have reported this to eBay. In the mean time, please be extremely careful.
I would have been taken in myself had I not read the Federal Trade
Commission's fraud alerts earlier this week.
