Newest Phishing Scam

Someone is emailing people telling them they have won a Power Sellers account on Ebay.

Unfortunately, you can't WIN a Power Seller's account, you have to earn it. When you DO earn it, you automatically get the logo, etc.

Also unfortunately, they've sent the email to an address that I don't have registered with Ebay, and isn't attached to my Ebay account.

So be warned -- someone's trying to steal your Ebay information. Probably to buy one of those laptops that people are selling as scams. Wouldn't that be ironic? A scammer gets bitten by a scammer? Sounds like P-P-P-Powerbook to me!

{Incidentally, if you've never heard about the P-p-p-Powerbook thing, you HAVE to read it. There is some strong language (at least in the older copy I read), but it is without a doubt the funniest thing I"ve ever heard about. Click the link and read it.}
