Subject: ebay forgeries

Hi Ricardo,
I am brand new to "Full-Disclosure", and I don't know if this is the 
proper way vto append... If not, please feel free to do so in my behalf...
This eBay "spoof" (this is the official name they coined and use) has 
been around for some time in all kind of shapes and colours, in order to 
fool un-suspicious recipients
To get the full story about this "phishing scam", I suggest you to go 
and visit:

http://www.millersmiles.co.uk/identitytheft/spoof-email-and-spoof-web-page-library.htm

Where you get a daily tracking of such scams (and Hoaxes as well)
Although the access is free, they suggest a token donation to keep them 
afloat, and I must say I diidn't regret any cent of my modest 
contribution...

I hope this helps,  Jean-Marie
