In just the past week, I have counted the eBay “Phishing” emails that have hit our inboxes. Even with spam protection on, I counted 33 spams. Of those, 16 were eBay phishing emails. There was everything from bogus threats to leave negative feedback for non shipment to phony invitations to join the eBay PowerSeller program.
I can really see this as a big problem for eBay and its associated payment processor PayPal. I’m starting to use non eBay email templates for my communications with eBay customers and I no longer rely completely on eBay’s internal system for things like unpaid item disputes. I have taken to following up with email from outside eBay.
