    quote:PLEASE do not post live clickable links to known spam or scam pages on the forum. It's great that you want to inform the forum members of these kinds of things but when there is a known scam link, please create a graphic of the link text and post that, as I did in one instance above, instead of a clickable link.

    Thanks.

    Sorry Bob, I guess I was being Pollyanna, I never thought that it might be a scam.

                    I'm very curious as to what the seller would say on the phone... I might call just to see what develops

                            I was already signed in to eBay, so I found the listing in question, and decided to "Ask the Seller a Question". Here is what I said (oh, and I did check the box that said to hide my email address from the seller):

                            Are you aware that all the thumbnail images do not work, but instead take users to the Ask a Question page (if they are already signed in). If they are not signed in, clicking the pictures takes them to a page to sign in with their eBay userid and password. This is causing people to say that you are phishing for UserIDs and Passwords. Have you contacted eBay to fix that problem with your thumbnail photos?

                                Isn't there an area code that looks like Florida but really directs your call to Jamaica and reverses the charges and at some outrageous rate? I know it sounds crazy, but there is some scam out there something like this. I ain't calling!
