I've never heard of these people. Today, I get an email from them. Here's part:

"We are writing to alert you to an incident which involved your email address. A little more than an hour ago, someone using a stolen credit card number signed up for hosted services on our network and began sending bogus ebay notices. The notice claimed to be from "Marina", with a question about an ebay item. The purpose of this notice was to steal your ebay password. By clicking on the button to respond to the ebay notice, you would have been redirected to a site disguised as ebay and specifically designed to steal your ebay password."

It goes on to give good advice about not clicking links in random emails, instead go to the site by myself. I tell everyone the same.

We DO have an ebay account.

Are these guys real? Or is it a new scam? They don't ask for money or even to go to their site. They do include contact info.
