Phishing is nothing new. In fact, if I click on the link, Firefox is nice enough to tell me it's a phishing site. You have to jump through a few hoops just to get to the phishing site. Phishing only catches stupid people, and most stupid people don't even know about binrev.

Phishing isnt new,your right.But there are people who don't use firefox .

Anyway,the site has been blocked for web forgery.

Case closed...

It doesn't really matter if you use Firefox or not (though the phishing protection is helpful). Anyone with half a brain will look at the URL before or after they click on the link, anyone with more than half a brain will go to ebay themselves instead of clicking on the link. Really, only clueless people fall for this stuff. Even my grandmother figured out what a phishing email was the first time she got one and she's about as far from "computer savvy" as I can imagine.

Hey,

It's a pitiful attempt at phishing, so thanks for sharing it for comedic value.
