eBay phishing - phishers are getting better
From: John Gateley <gateley () jriver com>

I just got another phishing scam (targeting eBay).

The twist is that the subject line included my eBay username,
and it was sent to my eBay e-mail address. The Phishers have
figured out how to get one from the other, I don't know how.

I sent it on to eBay but just got a standard form letter
back.

Is this happening to anyone else? Anyone know how they
were able to figure out my e-mail from user name (or
vice versa)?
