Examples Of Fake E-Mails - 2012
When people become active online, they become targets for malicious emails, often called "Spoof E-Mails". The best thing people can do is try and spot these bad e-mails, because it does not seem like there is any way to totally prevent their coming to our in boxes.
Current 2014 -- For Archived Years: Archive 2013

This page is devoted to examples of "Spoofs". The links are not active in the spoof e-mail examples to prevent accidentally clicking them. These are primarily Spoofs received at my eBay and PayPal email accounts.

This web site also has a page on e-mail safety tips: E-Mail Safety Tips.

What to do with Spoof emails?
You can forward them, and then it might be wise to immediately delete them.

Reminder: Fee update coming August 10

(All links in this email go to the same place. - NOT eBay and NOT the various eBay pages implied.)

There's still time to act to get the lowest fees!

Dear seller:

We're writing with one final reminder: the August 10 th fee update is just around the corner. Final Value Fee rates for all Fixed Price listings and for Stores Auction-style listings are being reduced and applied to the total amount of the sale, including shipping.

There's still time to take action. First, keep your shipping costs low. And if you haven't already done so, SUBSCRIBE NOW to upgrade your current subscription. Based on your recent selling history, that's how you'll get the lowest overall fees.

Use the Fee Illustrator to find the right subscription for you and to learn how much you'll save.

Remember, when an international or 1-day shipping service is offered and selected by your buyer, your Final Value Fee is calculated on the least expensive of your options--your international/1-day option OR the first domestic service offered other than 1-day. If your buyer chooses international shipping and you specified free shipping as your first domestic option, you pay zero Final Value Fees on shipping.

As always, we appreciate your selling on eBay.

Sincerely,

eBay Seller Team

Marketplace Safety Tip

Keep your money safe - never pay for items with cash or instant money transfer services, such as Western Union or MoneyGram. In the past some sellers have exploited these payment methods in order to defraud buyers, so eBay has banned them from the site.
Received a Second Chance Offer email? Double check that it's genuine: Second Chance Offer emails come directly from eBay and are shown in your My Messages.
Trade safely. Beware of anyone who contacts you about buying or selling outside of eBay. When you trade outside of eBay, you're not able to leave feedback or take advantage of protection programs and case resolution tools available on eBay. Report an inappropriate email.

Beware & Be Cautious - The world can be a dangerous place so use common sense and caution when meeting new people. There are good people in the world and unfortunately there are bad people. When meeting people, especially through the Internet, you should consult authoritative sources for safety considerations, but here are a couple of reminders of some basic considerations. Never go anywhere with someone you don't know. Always meet new people in a public place, during daylight hours, and meet someplace that is well populated with people. Be sure that someone knows where you are going and perhaps even have another adult accompany you when meeting someone you do not know. Never give out your personal information. This is also good advice for when you are selling items locally to an unknown person. We are not responsible for the people that you meet or any incidents or relationships that arise from those meetings. This site is for adults and as adults you are responsible for your own life and how you handle meeting new people. Please be cautious and stay safe and happy.
