Phishing is like fishing and a person or persons who does this can make off with a pretty good haul. The haul can be access to your accounts using your password and thief of your credit card numbers. Not to mention the spoof emails about your paypal account where someone is really spending your money as your reporting the spam emails. What can you do? Change your passwords and change them often. Do not use the same password for different accounts. Example: Don't use the same password for your ebay account that you use for paypal account. The same can be said with etsy. Change your passwords on a regular basis. If your like me you will have to use a note book to write them down in. That one brain cell doesn't work well while watching your money go down the drain!!
