This Email with the Subject "eBay : New Security" was
received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Tue, 17 Jul 2007 13:21:23 -0700 and has been classified as a
Generic Scam Email. The sender shows as eBay Security Team <member@eBay.com>,
although that address was probably spoofed. We recommend that you do not attempt to contact any persons or organizations referenced in
this email, as you may expose yourself to scammers and, at the very least, you will be added to their email address lists for spam purposes.
Since youâ€™re here â€¦
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.
And unlike many informational websites, we havenâ€™t put up a paywall or membership barrier â€“ we want to keep our site as open as we can.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we
hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
