Hi People, just thought I'd mention how close I got to being stung so look out for this:
Got an email from (what I thought was) "PayPal" saying that I had bought some electronic equipment for £590.00 and there was a small link at the bottom that said something like "If you beleive you didn't purchase this and want to request a refund- click here"
I clicked and got a very convincing "PayPal" form to fill out and my alarm bells rang loud and clear when at some point in the form it asked for my credit card details that I want a refund back to. I stopped filling it out and sent this email to PayPal who wrote back stating that it was a spoof.
Man, it was so convincing that hadn't I been an old pro on the bay I would've been HAD!.
