My mom got a email from "eBay" asking to type in All of her info. Including credit card, Ebay account, password, address, name, phone #, ect. (But it was everything)

But it looked JUST LIKE the real eBay page, it was even the real email address. My mom called her c. card company and cancled the card. Meanwhile I was busy spamming the living crap out of their inbox. :naughty:

Just a warning, NEVER give out any info if you get a weird email. They will never ask you for anything unless you change your password. Be carefull.

Sarrow, I think you're wrong there...There are 30+ aged adults that are ignorant of the dangers, but many are way on the other side of the spectrum. Such as my parents, they're more cautious and aware. But yea, never give info like that through emails, etc. Only totrusted online companies, through secure transactions etc. Even there it's not as safe as buying it at a local store.
