    Hi all Clickers,

    I don't work with CB, but saw this scam warning on another forum and thought I would pass it on. It sounds like the PayPal fraud where someone was trying to fool you into giving them your Paypal log-in info.

    POSTED ON ANOTHER FORUM:
    -----------------------
    I received an email that look like it came from Clickbank. The text read:

    "Dear ClickBank Vendor, we have recently updated our Payment Policy. Please login to your account to read the updated payment policy for clickbank vendors.

    http://clickbank.com/login.html

    Thanks for using ClickBank!"

    I clicked on the link and it looked just like the ClickBank login page. Just as I was about to enter my username and password to log in, I noticed the address was a geocities site.

    This same thing has been tried recently with PayPal. The user is tricked into entering the username and password then the scammer has those for whatever use he wants.

    DON'T Fall for it - it's easy to make a mistake.

    I have sent an email to Clickbank.

    If you click on the link I provided in the first post, you do seem to be taken to the Clickbank login page. The link in the email I received does not take you to the Clickbank page, it takes you to a geocities page.

    I'll post the geocities address so you can see the similarity with the Clickbank site - http://www.geocities.com/clickbankpo...ank-login.html
    --------------------------
    END QUOTE

    Hope this helps someone avoid a problem

    I just sent an abuse / fraud / impersonation report to Geocities.

    I was aware of Paypal scams but I always type in urls now just in case.
