    Yeah I got this one. Seeing as I have never had a dealing with ebay
    there was no way any
    account I had with them was nor about to try to correct anything. I did
    as of late get some
    strange phone calls from a number of companies claiming I was in arrears
    on all sorts of things.
    Only one valid, something had got mailed late. But I thought phising
    only worked by email
    when the person up to the nasty trick could do it and dissappear, but
    that it didn't work by
    phone, because I assume one has to have some bona fides with some bank
    or clearing house
    to do this..

    Have Fun,
