SCAM ALERT (New to me)

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

Just thought I'd share a new scam that I haven't seen before.
First had an email outside the eBay system to enquire where her item was as it was past 7 days.
I checked paypal with her email address and no record was found.
I apologetically replied asking for purchase ID and any credentials that may help to find her purchase.
A week later she replied with what looked like an eBay link to the item. I stupidly clicked it and I was directed to a spoof eBay login page. I didn't enter my details.

 

The link started like this:

She claimed her name was Laura Clayton and her email begins 

 

Not sure if I should I report this anywhere? Any advice?

 

Cheers,

Steve.

Be on your guard.
