    I found this article very interesting. It's about how a guy and his buddies scammed eBayers for over $2,000,000 over a couple of years by stealing people's eBay account info and impersonating them.

    If you're a regular eBay user I suggest you read this:

    They sent my dad emails asking for usernames and login and even bank account info to VERIFY his account. I sent them a nasty email back and I turned on all the header info and found their Base IP address and ISP then emailed eBay with the info. They said they had alot of emails with questions but when I forwarded the email with the full header it allowed them to track the IP address. So I want to think I helped /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Who's to blame here? Technology for pushing forward faster than security practices can keep up, or the naive end-users that sent thier info back to this guy?
