    Do you still have the e-mail?
    If so, forward it to spoof@ebay.com
    I get e-mails similar to that 2 or 3 times a month. I always forward them on...
    You never know, they may catch them!
    Good luck.

    Talking The Web

    The doggone web...This afternoon I was searching for down loadable free EASY piano sheet music (with named notes) for my wife. I'm getting tired of hearing Oh Danny Boy all evening.
    I was searching on the web.
    Damn what a racket. Jammed my computer up three times.
    Filled my computer up with cookies & tracking cookies...webcent & nextag & admarketing & webwatch & esomniture & about 50 others.
    Never search for ANYTHING FREE on the web.

    I finally found a nice REAL & actually FREE site that is part of the University Of Pittsburgh.
    It is truly free With No Strings Attached....& no...only being able to print 1/2 a sheet of music...or other cute little web tricks like only Row Row Row Your Boat & Chopsticks FREE.

    I don't know I'd be that harsh RSSZ. A lot of the people who fall for these things are elderly, and a number of them are just confused/desperate/upset people who aren't in their right frame of mind.

    I have to protect my grandmother from scams on a constant basis, and even my own mother has brought me things and asked me what it was and if she needed it since Dad died. She normally wouldn't even consider this crap but she is confused and upset right now.

    I can see somebody falling for this who is not a total moron.

    I used to get spoof e-mail from "E-bay" on a frequent basis, but not very often lately.

    I'm curious about a couple of things, though...are users of the internet so completely anonymous that even out-and-out fraud like this cannot be traced to a physical address?
    And does the brand new "internet annoyance law" apply to this sort of garbage?

    I know that my Dad (who never gambled) or even bought a Lottery Ticket got hooked by a terrible Lottery Phone Scam coming out of Canada.
    It was back when my Dad (who was an absolutely brilliant guy) was in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's. He was getting old.

    Then he got put on a Lottery Sucker List & was getting 15 & 20 assorted Lottery Scam pieces of mail every day.

    He was hiding them all over the house.
    None of us had any idea that he was doing that.

    Have no idea exactly how much $$ he lost.

    The scammers opened up a Credit Card in his name By Phone from Australia & then upped the limit & then Maxed it out.
    That was close to 20 thou. but, luckily the credit card co. covered that once our lawyer provided them with medical documentation & the fact that the C Card Co. failed to notice unusual activity on that card.
    They cleaned out one bank savings account & were were ready to tap into his other bank accounts when my Brother just happened to pick up the phone & smelled a rat.
    My Dad was a Super Smart guy that worked on & helped design the first early Radio Guided Torpedo System for the Navy. Really smart guy.
    Just goes to show you that when the brain starts to go Bye~Bye then anything is possible.
    The Canadian police actually nabbed the crooks in Canada & about 2 years later....we actually got most of the $$$ returned to us.

    After the case went through the court system up there.

    That was a nice suprise for my Mom.
    Luckily, the crooks kept very meticulous records of who they were swindling.

    My plans for these scam artists are not actually printable - in case I get arrested!!!

    That one of yours QK sounds like it might have originated from Nigeria or similar - it has a bit of the feel of ''I have $10,000,000 that needs to be deposited in a bank there - will you help''?

    Browser with Mozilla Firefox - that will help reduce all that junk by ALOT, trust me. It's different than IE, mainly safer to browse with and much more secure. Check it out.

    I don't know who it was that said it originally, but I've found it to be true...

    The latest scam is a bill from xyz credit card or an official looking pay pal invoice for a rather exorbitant sum. For your "convenience" they provide a “dispute it this charge button”. Never having clicked that button I can only imagine what harm it will do.

    I got a call a couple of months ago from a guy with a heavy accent. The phone rang about 8:00 Sat. morning and the guy on the other end said that he worked for some government agency and they noticed that I had been paying my taxes on time so the government was going to send me an 8,000 check. The catch was that I needed to send in a 275-dollar check for the legal fees and paperwork.

    I don't know what the heck this guy was thinking when he called me, but I did manage to carry on about a 15 minute conversation with him. I started talking about the deficit and not to mention the government was already trillions of dollars in debt. This guy finally got frustrated enough and just hung up on me.......what a great feeling!!!

    Hi Will - long time no see!!

    I was almost thinking there, as I read thru your post - that after 15 minutes was perhaps when you informed the guy that - ''OK thanks, I now have a trace on you - my ''friends'' will be calling soon'' - that'd leave him wondering LOL
