  1. >block any display of those images outside the eBay site.

    Yeah, because you can’t get round that with a screenshot & photoshop.

  2. Except that I said eBay should change the images on its site constantly. That would be hard to get round.

    The fake site is down right now – hard to say when it was removed though.

    Trouble of course being that these pages can be set up everywhere, and eBay is always playing catchup. Which is why it should stop the outgoing display of images. That would at least delay the phishers.

  3. The phishers are still phishing…that site is still up.

  4. Not to mention that this scammer is using EBAY’S OWN PROGRAM to redirect browsers to his site.

    eBayISAPI.dll (running on ebay) is slavishly redirecting users to systems outside Ebay’s domain. That is a world-class security hole if I’ve ever seen one. And no doubt about it, it’s Ebay’s fault.

  5. is clearly a criminal entrprise–as of May 2005, the web site is still up. I’ve sent three complaints to them in the last week.
