I almost got caught in one phishing paypal/ebay scam email before. Said I had bought something that I obviously didn't, was about to click the link that said "go to My eBay by clicking here" and clocked that the link wasn't actually going where it should be.

i'm sorry but the email was bait fraud.There are gramatical errors and numerous other signs of a dodgy email. Also, if you bothered to read it properly the buyer won't pay you until you ship first. What kind of procedure is that? They try to hide it by wording it in such a way for you not to notice.Also the first email is also bait Nigeria = LOW IT FAMyou should send the box of the phone though with a sh*t inside
