    If you do any buying or selling on ebay watchout. There is an email going around that appears to be coming from ebay. It is not. The email is asking for information update. On the bottom of the email it asks for your PIN number. This threw an alarm flag up for me. I contacted ebay and they confirmed that the email was not from them. Watch out. Do not reply to the email. You may forward emails like this to spoof@ebay.com

    Just wanted to warn everybody. I just about replied to it.

    Yes, I have seen them. I have also gotton some from paypal asking for info updates. I have turned them in. The best way to see if it's real is when you click on the link. If it brings you directly to info page WITHOUT your usual logging in, it not secured. DO NOT REPLY. Save the email and turn it in.

    this is old news, ignore and delete any paypal or ebay email that asks for any personal info, they dont do this through email, in fact delete any email asking for any personal info at all that you believe should not be known by them at least over internet gateways at least!
