Phishing Email of the Month

This email I just received is easily the best (read: most hilarious) phishing email I’ve seen this month.

To: [an email I’ve never used on eBay]
From: “Support” <>
Subject: Messge from eBay –

Dear eBay Member,

Thank you,

Oh holy crap, my online has expired?!?

What will I do? Obviously I’d better click the totally legitimate link to right away, to make sure my online is not limited, or worse… deleted!

Wow, thanks so much Scott R. Shipman, you really saved me from what could have been a downright terrible day.

Crisis averted.

    That’s funny. I’m glad your online wasn’t limited. How else would you update this sweet site?
