I just got an ebay scam email which linked here:

http://ebayupdate-ebay.com/

I suggest everyone sign in with rude comments like I did. Let them know we're onto them.

I also forwarded the info to [email protected]

eg:

Login: f*ckoff
Password: Youhavebeenreported

Then on the next page:

CC number: 5555555555555555555555

Name on card: S*ck My D*ck

I'm rather rude to these people (as you can tell).

Considering most of these guys are in Korea or Bosnia I doubt that they're afraid of the FBI. I wholeheartedly approve of the name calling though.

Another one. Please repeat as above:

They're claiming to be Comcast. This time my name was "Icalled Thefbi"

EDIT: Look at the clever way they hide things. They make the text white assuming that your background is the same color (mine is). If you highlight the message, you see the text.

I just read this same one (subject line: WARNING: Verify your Comcast account. ID: toyedbowler)
"enormous attempts?" Excuse me? Hard to fall for this crap when they get your addy wrong, misuse the language, then have a bunch of crap in white. Idjits.
I hope these people die right now, and I hope I caused it.
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!
