This Email with the Subject "Ebay Security Service Notification" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 21 Aug 2006 03:30:47 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam Email. The sender shows as "firstname.lastname@example.org"<email@example.com>, although that address was probably spoofed. We recommend that you do not attempt to contact any persons or organizations referenced in this email, or follow any URLs as you may expose yourself to scammers and, at the very least, you will be added to their email address lists for spam purposes.
We recently noticed one or more attempts to log in to your eBay account from a foreign IP address and we have reasons to believe that your account was used by a third party without your authorization.
If you recently accessed your account while traveling, the unusual login attempts may have been initiated by you.
The login attempt was made from:
IP address: 172.25.210.66
ISP Host: cache-66.proxy.aol.com
By now, we used many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information our users provide us when they register on the Site. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, eBay cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity.
We have established an offline verification system to help you evaluate with who you are dealing with.
