It's getting kinda scary how easily hackers are accessing our information these days. Just received this in my email about "cheaper deals" on Ebay. They've even got my username!

Not to mention recently I've been recently getting emails from "friends" with correct email addresses and full names in the headers, but the content is obviously NSFW stuff

Scammers need to get a real job. I think more resources should be used to track these people down and crack down hard. To stop some others. The issue is so many is in other counties as well.

I've been wondering how long it would be before scammers would clean their act up and speak in an (email) language that's believable and real. This one is pretty close!

Huh, in the 12 years and over 900 feedbacks I have been using ebay I have never once gotten anything like that. Weird.
