Hi Laura.  This has been going on for some time now.  I've gotten emails 
claiming to be from paypal, ebay, citibank, welsfargo, etc.  All 
claiming that my account has been hacked or that they are updating 
security files.  To fix this problem I must log on to their site and 
provide my full name, address and credit card information to verify it's 

I know from using online banking for well over 7 years now that your 
bank no matter who they are will never ask for this type of information 
like this and on top of it send an ip-only address to log on to.

Your warning is certainly warranted but if people use a little common 
sense they will be safe.  One note about those paypal users.  The real 
payapl will always address you by first and last name, if you get email 
claiming to be from paypal and they start off with Dear Paypal user, or 
Dear paypal customer, then they are spoofs.  You should forward those to 
spoof@xxxxxxxxxx  There are other addresses one can use for citibank, 
ebay, etc if one chooses to do this but who can say if the banks really 
do anything about it.
