Yeah ebay has been in the habit of pissing of alot off memebers the last year or so! Raising fees. I know alot of people are now trying to open online stores instead of using ebay.

According to paypal, that site in question IS NOT LEGITIMATE. The email seemed a bit like a robot responding,


This is part of the email,

The website linked to this email is not a registered URL authorized or used
by PayPal. We are currently investigating this incident fully.


The toalt response is the typical stuff you might receive and very generic which leads me to believe that they may have not actually looked at the site but sent out their standard email.

In the meantime it's probably better you stay away from that site

I just checked my email address that I have registered with Paypal and have an email from Paypal (their Feb 07 newsletter) and this offer is actually listed in their email to me. I think it might actually be legit. The link in the email looks like this:

http://email1.paypal.com/blahblahblahblahblah (except blah's are a bunch of letters and numbers)

When I click on that I go to Paypal's site and then get:

Quote:
Welcome to PayPal. You are now being redirected to PayPal's shopping site hosted by a PayPal partner.
That's when it's redirected to the http://paypal.promotionexpert.com/gr...?route=email.s

I'm usually skeptical, but again this was from an actual Paypal email (they addressed me by name in the email, not "Paypal Account Holder" or something like that). If anyone wants the email, let me know and I'll forward it.
