eBay Scam Email Warning

Be aware, eBay scam emails circulating.

One of our clients forwarded an email to us today claiming to be from eBay, however, this is not a genuine email from eBay and is in fact a scam.

A screen shot of the email is below and at first glance it does appear to be a genuine eBay email, however, the link within the email, which the sender of the email invites you to click on, goes to a fake eBay site and at this point, if you enter your eBay account details, the criminals behind this scam will have your eBay log in information.

You can make sure you are visiting the genuine eBay site by typing the eBay website (www.ebay.co.uk) address directly into your browser address bar and then after you log in on the genuine site any issues with your account will be shown in the ‘my eBay’ section.
