Is the following email from ebay a result of using your software? If so, why? Both myself and a friend used your website this weekend and we both got the same email from ebay.


Dear eBay member


We recently noticed more attempts to log in to your eBay account from a
foreign IP address and we have reasons to belive that your account was compromised
by a third party without your authorization.

If you recently accessed your account while traveling,the unusual log in attempts
may have been initiated by you.
However,if you are the account holder please verify that, clicking on the link below,
fill the form and then submit. In this way we will verify your identity.

The log in attempt was made from:
IP address: 184.158.158.98
ISP host: 184.158.158.98


If you choose to ignore our request , your ac! count will be suspended until you will verify your identity


We ask that you allow at least 72 hours for the case to be investigated and we
strongly recommend not to make any changes to your account in that time.

If you received this notice and you are not the authorized account
holder, please be aware that it is in violation of eBay policy to represent
oneself as another eBay user. Such action may also be in violation of
local, national, and/or international law. eBay is committed to assist
law enforcement with any inquires related to attempts to misappropriate
personal information with the intent to commit fraud or theft.
Information will be provided at the request of law enforcement agencies to
ensure that perpetrators are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

*Please do not respond to this e-mail as your reply will not be received.

Thanks for your patience as we work together to protect your account.!


Regards,

No, Gixen IP addresses begin with 208.68.210, e.g. 208.68.210.137.
No other servers are used.

I think I saw this email before, and I think it's a phishing email and it's not coming from eBay. Do not do what that email suggests. Report it to ebay, or if you don't know how, forward it to me, and I will report it.

I recieved an email similar to this in the past at an email address for which I don't have an ebay account. It is a phishing email sent to you to gain your ebay login information. Do not reply or give out any information. Forward the email to "spoof" (at) "ebay.com" as I did when I recieved this message. As of right now, I have never used Gixen, though I plan on trying it out soon. I reported the phishing email to ebay. Gixen could not have been involed in it.

That's a phish e-mail. No doubts.
Just delete it and forget about it (do not click and do not submit any forms).

Guys, this is a year-old topic, not a recent post, no need to reply. If something like this ever happens again, just start a new topic.
