eBay Scam Alert

Life is a MoBlog (Highway)

Beware of email scams from people claiming to be eBay but the link actually goes to some site hosted by www.nivs.lv.

What it really does is that it opens a pop-up window that does whatever unscrupulous stuff while uses the original window to open a ebay.com webpage. I have the google toolbar that blocks pop-ups so I don't exactly know what the other windows does, but I'm not taking the risk.

Go here for the MovableType entry.
