I recieved an email a few days ago....it was from ebay ( so it said). It looked like it was from ebay....but I saved it for Russell to look at. They wanted my username and password. So when Russell came last night I showed it to him. It was bogus. Someone was trying to get my information so they could use my visa. Normally I would just type in the information and that would be that. It wasnt from ebay at all, even though it looked just like something from ebay.
Russell installed a thingie on my computer so now I will be able to tell if someone wants information and its bogus. Russell is very computer wise, I dont ask Jeeves, I ask Russell!
I remember a while back I got something that said it was from my bank. They said someone was tampering with my account and they wanted my password and username so they could correct it. I called my bank and they said to disregard that, it wasnt from them.
I just want you guys to be aware if you get any email asking for any information DO NOT GIVE IT TO THEM. Someone is always out there trying to get rich on someone elses money. I had a friend who had her identity stolen and it was a real mess for them for a long time.
So please be aware, because those kind of people are out there. As much as we like to trust.....we can't always trust.
