Fake Emails

I actually got a fake email that was supposed to be (but not) from ebay. Since I keep my balance at 0 usually, I had no idea why I was getting it, so I asked customer service about it. I'm really glad I went about it that way. Come to find out that is was someone that wanted my password. The email said that they needed uptodate info on my cc or banking account and since my balance was over $1.00 and if I didn't give this info, my account would be suspended. I'm really glad now that I do things like I do. If I had been more trusting, this person could have wiped me out.

Please people before you give any personal information out because of an email, make sure you verify it's from the actual company and from a company that is legit! This can not be stressed enough. There are so many people out there that only want to rip you off. All they want is someone that is willing to freely give this kind of information out, then you are there's. Please be careful! I know the internet can be a wonderful place, but if you are not careful, you could be hurt as well.

God's blessings to everyone.
