My mother was quite upset the other day when she received an email from eBay saying that her account was suspended. It looked so official, she was sure it was real.
When I told her that I get those emails too and that she should go to the eBay site and sign in, then check her account, she would probably find everything was fine.
Sure enough, there were no problems with her account, but for an eighty-two year old lady, that kind of email was distressing.
Everyone will probably get a scam email sooner or later, so always go to the site to verify your account, never respond to a link on the email. They are just pfishing for your information.
