    Another warning! Never open mailings like this!!! Always go to the original acct! Like the phone calls if you did not initiate it Do NOT give them ANY information!

    Thanks for the heads up. So far I have not gotten this one but have gotten emails from people I have never heard of. I don't open those either.
    Happy Quilting

    We just received notification that our E-Bay account had been locked due to a security problem. It seems someone had used our account without permission. We did not open it but went to our E-Bay account and found out it was locked. We contacted E-Bay and were told that someone had used out account to post a few items for sale. We did not authortize this and had to set up another access name and password. So, sometimes it is true. Just go to the source.

    Fakers suck!

    Any suspicious emails should never be opened. Please feel free to forward such nonsense to spoof@paypal.com or spoof@ebay.com whichever applies. They will let you know if the are the ones who sent it and maybe your tip will help catch these jerks. Eithe way, don't just delete them, put them in the trash and empty that as well. In a perfect world,
    we wouldn't have to be bothered. Watch where you're putting your email address when you are surfing the web, also.
