eBay Scam Alert
By Matthew Caulfield

Our family just received this request, purportedly from eBay, asking
for our passwords:

> Dear eBay Member,  Please log into your eBay account using the
> following link to confirm you are still an active eBay user asap.


Because it was written in such atrocious English, we were suspicious.
Checking the eBay site showed that this is the latest in a series of
spoofed eBay messages and fake eBay sites trying to get the passwords
of unwary people.  eBay states that its real site URL begins with
http://cgi.ebay or http://scgi.ebay but NOT with the cgi3 construct.
eBay asks that anyone receiving such a fraudulent email forward a copy
to <>
