...... am getting so sick of someone tring to get my credit card details and account information from me.
These so-called "phishing" messages have been sent out as apparently from all the major banks as well! No way of stopping them that I know of.
From a report on TV a week or two ago, it looks as if there are actually people gullible enough to actually send their credit card details to hese scammers!
The only advice I can give is to delete them as fast as they arrive.

blueegyptian, I hope you don't think there's a connection between using e-Bay and your receiving these "phishing" e-mails. You would have received them whether or not you were an actual e-Bay user.
I have been using ebay for almost a year now and am getting so sick of someone tring to get my credit card details and account information from me.
The phishers blanket everybody on their e-mail list with phony info requests about some major online financial source, figuring they'll hit a lot of real customers with their scattershot. I've gotten numerous phony requests about my Citibank account, but I've never had an account with Citibank.
And you'll never get a "phishing" request for your GreenPoint Bank account.
