We got hit with this one today, came in to the corp. site, same deal the
alarms went off when the URL failed to match up.....wondering if it's the
same chap that's being looked at by E-Bay ?

on this question anyone have opinions on the best HTML mail
sweeper/guard/spam guard for corporate usage ?

Thanks

Chris

I got this very message today as well.  It looks very authentic, and I have
to admit my heart skipped a beat because I do have a bestbuy account.  The
thing that tipped it off though was that the listed link doesn't match the
linked URL and so the "instant fraud" bells strated going off.
