I received the following email this morning, I thought, at least, in reference to one of my current auction items.



 
 Question from k.stevens94

Item: (180146319516)
This me ssa ge w as  sent while the listing was  active.

k.stevens94 is a potential buyer.



Hi, I would like to know if is possible to ship to New Jersey? I am very interested so I'll wait a response. Have a nice day
Respond to this question



Responses in My Messages will not include




Of course, it had all of the proper eBay information in it, including genuine graphics, HTML, links, etc. and even the REAL auction number for one of my live auctions.



But since I never click on "Respond Now" in an email - I choose to play it safe, and go to "My Messages" on eBay - I noticed that this email was NOT in my "My Messages" folder. Upon further investigation, this seller - who allegedly asked me a question today - is "No Longer A Registered User."



I take it this is another scam to get one's eBay login information.



Just an FYI....

Yeah, I get phony ones, too...but this is the first one that's actually had a "question" that actually links to an ACTUAL auction of mine. Usually, they're all just bogus links, or so I have found.
