Never saw this one before:


Dear ([email protected]),


In an effort to protect your eBay account security, we have suspended your account until such

time that it can be safely restored to you. We have taken this action because your password

may have been compromised. Although we cannot disclose our investigative procedures that led

to this conclusion, please know that we took this action in order to maintain the safety of your account.



However, your account is marked for too many successful logins last week (January, 20-28, 2005).

It is more interesting that the hostnames are from different countries:



United States (c-67-160-224-80.client.comcast.net)

Canada (HSE-Toronto-ppp304429.sympatico.ca)

Sweden (c213-100-93-27.swipnet.se)

Russia (32.122-140-213.telenet.ru)



Please authorize your registration information on or before February 3, 2005.

Currently registration information will be screened when you login.



Follow the link to make sure you are on a secure eBay webpage.



Thank you for using eBay!

The link actually goes to http://gtman.co.kr/signin.ebay.com/ws/eBay...d=SignInWelcome and when I tried to log in with fake name and password (to fill it with bad info and such), it wouldn't let me in so I guess that phisher site does check with eBay for login info.
