Hoop, I wonder if this guy is a victim of ID theft. If you look in his history, he states he only does business in the UK. I was having problems with ebay spammers a while back, almost fell for it the first time-needing my account info. Been bit in the butt a couple of times too many and has made me more cautious. They were asking the right questions because I was selling some stuff at the time, but then I remembered that Ebay will NEVER ask for personal info in an unsolicited email. That jerked me out of my panic and I promptly shuttled the email on to ebay. So many people use the Ebay service to make a little extra money. It's just so infuriating when other people (or should I say jerks) look for and find a way to screw it up. Why??
