Phishing attacks on @fastmail.fm accounts.

I've noticed several random eBay phishing attacks targeted a a couple of my @fastmail.fm aliases (which I don't use anywhere).

Anyone else?

I've received loads of those fake Ebay emails the last couple of days in both my fastmail accounts and if I remember correctly some of those were sent to aliases as well.... so you're not the only one.

Got a really good one last week from a prince in Dubai, I was really tempted to help him to recover his US$18,000,000 for 20%!!!

Who on earth falls for these obvious scams ???

You can't compare that to the eBay emails being send... they look like eBay they have links to eBay exept the link where you need to put your account name and password...

I've also received quite a number of the Ebay mails and the spelling on many of them leaves something to be desired
