    How do you spot these scams?

    This guy has 189 feedback with 100% positive feedback, but the price is very cheap.

    Yes indeed.. if you have an account ensure you have a strong password and change it regularly ..

    another scam is asking for your password by email..

    example

    Everyone in the eBay Community Buyer or Seller needs to be aware of this particular email Scam to obtain your eBay user name and Password !

    Hi there,

    I purchased an item form your ebay store but i can't make the payment through paypal. It seems that listing has been removed. Can you check it out? Here is the auction link: http:*********

    Please let me know as soon as possibile

    Thanks

    Golden Rule

    ONLY put your log in and passwords into websites loaded up from Shortcuts you have created yourself rather than searching on a search provider like google each time,

    [HI]Thanks Paul for the cracking Job you do as scam spotter[/HI][HI][/HI]

    to me two rules.

    1. If in doubt-- do nowt.
    2. If it looks too good to be true--it is.
