eBay Phishing

This is an email I got this morning. It was addressed to my Ouatic-7 email address. Surprisingly, the email address that is published all over the web is not the one I use for secure transactions so I immediately knew this was a scam, even before opening it.

Interestingly, all of the links are or used to be valid eBay links except the one they want the recipient to click. Apparently they took an old (notice the copyright dates at the bottom) actual eBay email, kept the headers and filled in their own crap.

I have disabled the link by replacing the angle brackets with square brackets and breaking the protocol. You can see the secure link you are supposedly clicking on is not the actual link.

More on eBay phishing scams courtesy of MillerSmiles.co.uk. Not sure if this is a new variant but have submitted for their archive.
