Somehow this email slipped through my email spam filters. Thought I’d post it as an example of what NOT to believe when it shows up in your in-box. (This one is kind of obvious. The ones that warn that your eBay or other account are about to be shut down unless you “click here” and verify this or that — those are more insidious.)
