Well, how much ID can they steal? It's not like your sending them your password and card number????

I have received two or three of these "question from eBay member" scam e-mails now. It was a new angle to me - have others seen this? Don't fall for it....

Basically, you get a vague but very came-through-eBay-officially-looking e-mail that looks like it came from another eBay member. It says "Hi - I want to buy your item that's currently listed on eBay. Please calculate postage to 12345 and let me know how I can pay for the item."

If you respond, I'm sure they'll attempt to steal your identity. If you click on "report this e-mail to eBay" it begins to send an e-mail to their e-mail address in Upper Slobovia (where is .kr?) where they will steal your identity. If you don't have any items listed, and reply to that effect, they'll try to steal your identity. Yuck! This has multiple ways for them to rip you off. I'm now forwarding them to but I'm not sure what eBay will do about this.
