More Spoofing and Phising

This morning I checked my Yahoo email. As I normally get a lot of spam I was not too surprised that I have a lot of spam in my bulk email. I was surprised to see five emails claiming to be from EBay and one from Paypal. Two of the EBay claimed I had created an account. They all purported to be from those companies.

As always I am skeptical of emails asking me to go to a clickable link and retype all of my personal information. Also, I don't have an EBay account or Paypal account. I went to and and found that they have and ids for this type of activity. If you get messages like this please forward them so they can help shutdown the phishers.
