I received the following e-mail today:

Dear eBay member,

Technical services are being carried out on a planned software upgrade. We earnestly ask you to visit the following link to start the procedure of confirmation of your personal data. follow this link to update account information.

However, failure to update your billing information record will result in account termination.

We present our apologies and thank you for your cooperation.

And yes, 'Department' was actually misspelled. Jeez, these people don't even try that hard anymore. I guess it's hard work being dishonest.

I got one for Washington Mutual, which is not even my bank, so i went to the page, filled in fake information, including a made up credit card number which only contains 1$ and can only be used till it is up (You know, one of those gift card thingies), and they "logged" me in as if nothing had happened :p.

So now they have bad information, to try and exploit.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
