    Well I sent the site address off to the ebay fraud address last night (about 10 hours ago) and they haven't replied yet. Normally they reply within 1 hour, so its either legit, or something so horrid they are still tracking it down, or they're wondering how someone in Australia recieved the mail and are in meltdown :-)

    Graham,

    It was not an email that Kevin got, it is a website that ebay runs for legislative action here in the states, no email involved in this one. Of course you may get an email from them, if you have signed up for their action alerts.

    The only thing they are asking for is the EBay ID - which is pretty much publicly available anyway. Nothing to worry about here.

    Ahhh I think you've hit on why Graham thought it was bogus. ebay main street is a US site and being down under Graham doesn't have it.

    So Graham, relax, put another shrimp on the barbie!

    Thanks Bob, but I'm not stupid :-)

    When you enter your Ebay ID at that site you are redirected to the ebay signin page. Ask yourself why they ask you to enter your ID then send you to a signin page which again asks for your ID.

    It just feels wrong and that is why I'm asking Ebay to confirm that it is their site.


    Graham.

    If you owe $500.00 they will spend 5 billion to get it though.

    It never hurts to be cautious where the Internet is concerned, there are too many people trying to rip you off.

    I hope Graham isn't driking Fosters -- Victoria Bitter is the beer !!!!!

    No-one drinks Fosters Lager. What a terrible taste.

    VB is a nice drop.

    Yep, Fosters is what the rest of the world gets, so it won't ask for the good stuff.
