So, I get an email that looks like an ebay question from a buyer to a seller. The only thing is, I don’t have anything for sell. I check out the auction number (by copying and pasting it from the email) and its a legit auction. Now, as I said earlier, I try not to do anything stupid with my email. So, before clicking anything in the email, I hovered the links. To my surprise, the links are all http://www.google.com/pagead/… links. A couple of days later, I get another one. As if click fraud is not bad enough, now spammers are getting into the game.
So, beware. If you get an email from “ebay”, it very well could be a click fraud spam. Hover those links before you click.
