Fake PayPal.com or eBay.com emails

DomainAvenue.com has become aware that scam emails which attempt to fool PayPal.com and eBay.com customers into handing over sensitive credit card account information has been sent to thousands of Internet users.

These fake emails, which appeared to have been sent to users at random, purported to be part of a security check. PayPal.com or eBay.com customers who received these emails are encouraged to enter their details to fraudulent sites. As is common with such scams, the URL used in the emails is cleverly encoded to disguise the true location of the Web sites. The destination pages are designed to look like the genuine eBay.com or PayPal.com Web sites. Only tell-tale signs, easily overlooked, like spelling mistakes, give the game away.

Both PayPal.com and eBay.com are aware of this scam and have advised users to avoid divulging account information in response to these emails. Users are advised to contact them directly if they have any questions or concerns.

Remember, reputable companies will never ask you to provide security details via such means -- if in doubt, be safe and ask first.
