Subject: RE: SP91011 - Your recent report to eBay's Trust and Safety
Department. (KMM5038333V37068L0KM)

Hello,

Thank you for writing to eBay regarding the email you received.

Emails such as this, commonly referred to as "spoof" or "phished"
messages, are sent in an attempt to collect sensitive personal or
financial information from the recipients.

The email you reported was not sent by eBay. We have reported this email
to the appropriate authorities.

In the future, be very cautious of any email that asks you to submit
information such as your credit card numbers or passwords. If you are
ever concerned about an email you receive from eBay, simply follow these
steps:

1. Open a new Web browser and type www.ebay.com into your browser
address field to go directly to the eBay site.

2. On eBay, click on the "My eBay" link at the top of the page and sign
into your account.

3. Check the "My Messages" link located on the left side of the My eBay
page. If an email affects your eBay account, it's now in "My Messages."
Any email sent to your registered eBay email address from eBay or from
another eBay member via eBay's member-to-member communication system
will also appear in "My Messages."

Just remember, if you get an email regarding a problem with your account
or that is requesting personal information, and the email looks like it
is from eBay, please check My Messages first. If it's not there, it's a
fake email.

If you still have any doubt about whether an email message is from eBay,
please forward it to spoof@ebay.com immediately. Do not respond to it or
click any of the links. Do not remove the original subject line or
change the email in any way when you forward it to eBay.

If you have already entered sensitive personal information, financial
information, or your password into a Web site based on a request from a
spoofed email, you should take immediate action to protect your identity
and all of your online accounts. We have developed an eBay Help page
with valuable information regarding the steps you should take to protect
yourself.

To review eBay's new tutorial about Spoof Emails, please see the
following Web page:

To help you better protect yourself from fake eBay and PayPal Web sites,
we have developed a feature for the eBay Toolbar called "Account Guard."
Account Guard includes an indicator of when you are on an eBay or PayPal
Web site or a known spoof (or "phishing") site, buttons to report fake
eBay Web sites, and a password notification feature that warns you when
you may be entering your eBay password on an unverified site.

To learn more about the eBay Toolbar with Account Guard, please go to
www.ebay.com, click on "Downloads" at the bottom of the page, and then
click on the "eBay Toolbar" link.

We also recommend that you keep your browser, operating system, and
virus protection software up to date. Check for updates at the "Windows
Update" link on www.microsoft.com and scan your computer for viruses
often.

Once again, thank you for alerting us to the spoof email you received.
Your efforts help keep eBay a safe and fair place to trade.

Regards,

Ande

Stef, thanks so much for sharing my website ,
My hears desire is to win soul and to be a blessing .
I wanted to let you know I really am thankfull for such a friend as you.
God has blessed you so much,
I know he is proud how you have given him all.
How you have growned in grace and knowledge, wooohooo, somefolks and the devil himself is disapointed.
But to God be the glory!
The bible says a fool would say the Lord delayeth his coming.
I say even a fool stuck in a form of traidtion and religion needs to get their hearts right.
My there is still some is not being lead by the spirit of God
there all wraped in racesm and so many things to mention.
Well I have doubt one can enter the kingdom of heaven with this kind of ignorance in the heart , not the head.{Big difference}
The bible tells me no sin will enter the kingdom of heaven.
If thy has something against some1
better get it under the blood , and you need renewing of the holy spirit to be lead and guided the way God would have you , get that fleshly sin covered by the blood.
this is where the bible speaks on , not every1 that says Lord ,Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven but the one that does he's will . {Get self out of the way.}
WELL I HAD NO INTENTION OF SAYING ANYTHING WHEN I MADE COMMENT TO SIGN YOUR BLOG,I AM PRAYED UP AND WANT TO BE LEAD BY GOD SO I WILL CONTINUE.
I HAVE A FEW OLDER FOLKS IN MY FAMILY, WHO HAS A PROBLEM WITH
BLACKS AND MEXICANS, I WANT TO TELL YOU WITH MY HEART BURSTING WITH LOVE FOR YOU AND SUCH CONCERN,
I AM WONDERING HOW YOU THINK YOU GOING TO HEAVEN AND YOU THINK YOU ARE BETTER THEN SOME1 ELSE.
YOU BETTER GET THAT MESS UNDER THE BLOOD B4 YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD AND STAND B4 GOD . THAT IS SIN AND IT CAN NOT ENTER HEAVEN. YOU ANT NO BETTER THAN THAT MAN LAYING OUT THERE IN THE GUTTER.
MY GOD LOVES HIM JUST AS MUCH
AND TO THINK YOU CAN JUSTIFY A COLOR OF A PERSON SKIN, MY JESUS WAS AND IS A JEW. {DIDN'T KNOW IF YOU KNEW}
MY, MY THIS JUST BREAKS MY HEART
AS LONG AS ONE SAYS OH YEA I BEEN A CHRISTIAN , AND HAVENT RECEIVED KNOWLEDGE FROM GOD ABOUT THIS MATTER. [ ???? ]
IF IT IS PRIDE THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO ADMIT YOU WRONG, WILL FOLKS ARE SLIPPING OFF INTO HELL EVER DAY BECAUSE OF PRIDE.
I TELL YOU THATS HOW I KNOW I AM SAVED , I LOVE THE BRETHREN!!!!!!!!
I JUST WANT TO SAY I LOVE YOU AND
I HOPE YOU GET TO READ THIS.
BEFORE IT'S TO LATE.
I AM NOT TALKING TO JUST ONE PERSON
HERE I KNOW OF FIVE OR MORE PERSONALLY THAT FEELS THIS WAY ,
MY, I HOPE YOU WAKE UP.
I WANT US TO BE TOGETHER IN HEAVEN.
MY , MY AT THE SOULS HAS BEEN BROKEN AND TORN and to offend one of his littleones.
PLEASE GET IT UNDER THE BLOOD ! PLEASE!
I LOVE YOU.
example .....
ALL MY YEARS I WENT TO SCHOOL , I WAS TAUGHT AN ORANGE WAS AN APPLE
LATER IN YEARS EVERYONE TOLD ME I WAS WRONG , I KNEW WHAT MY TEACHERS TOLD ME , BUT I HAVE EVERYONE NOW TELLING ME NO THAT ORANGE IS A APPLE.

OK, SO IF I BELEIVED ONE WAY WHEN I WAS GROWNING UP AND LATER FOUND OUT IT WAS JUST WHAT I HAD BELEIVED IN ALL THESES YEARS.
I WAS WRONG AND DEEP NOW I KNEW IT.

YOU TELL ME GOD HAS BLESSED THESE MINSTRIES ON TV WITH 1000sssss
of people, DONT YOU THINK GOD WOULD HAVE STOPED THEM IF IT WAS WRONG. YOU SEEN THEM ALL MIXED WITH RACES AND {YOU} GOING TO SPEAK SUCH THINGS.
THE TOUNGUE CAN GIVE YOU LIFE OR DEATH THE BIBLE SAYS.
HEY, GOD HAS BLESS THOSE MINISRTY
EVER GOOD GIFT COME FROM ABOVE.
I HAVENT CALLED ANY NAMES TO WHO THIS MAY BE FOR.
BUT IF THE SHOE FITS WEAR IT.
{There is no where in the bible of such ignorance you speak!}
JUST GO TO DOCTOR JESUS AND GET A CHECK UP , THATS ALL YOU NEED .
A CHILD OF GOD WILL SEEK GOD ON THIS IF YOU FEEL I AM WRONG .
GOD WILL SURE LET YOU KNOW.
BUT I HAVE BEEN TO DOCTOR JESUS !

I WANT TO PRAY RIGHT NOW.
MY PRAYER.
OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AS I COME HUMBLE AS A CHILD , WITH DEEPEST CONCERN OF SOME SOULS , THAT I LOVE DEARLY AND YOU HAVE BROUGHT
MY WAY KNOWLEDGE TO WARN FOLKS.
I AM SO THANKFULL, I HAVE THIS CHANCE TO DO SO.
I WANT TO ALWAYS OBEY YOU AND DO YOUR WILL.LORD I DONT WANT TO OFFEND NO ONE AND CAUSE ANY PROBLEMS, JUST LEAD BY YOUR SPIRIT.
I KNOW YOU HAVE LEAD ME TO SAY THIS , IT HAS BEEN ON MY HEART FOR SOMETIME NOW. I HAVE PUT IT OFF NOT SAYING ANYTHING.
LORD AND I ASK FORGIVENESS AND THANK YOU, I WAS LEAD TO SAY THIS TONIGHT.
LORD I HAVE LOVEONES THAT NEED A TOUCH IN THEIR BODY.
LOVEONES THAT NEED TO GET THEIR HEARTS RIGHT.I AM GOING TO THANK YOU [IT IS ALL TAKEN CARE OF.]
YOU TELL US TO SPEAK THOSE THINGS AS THEY SHOULD BE , NOT AS THEY SEEM.
I SPEAK NOW ON A TRUE REPENTANCE
FROM LOVE ONES , THAT THEY WILL ASK AND SEEK KNOWLEDGE FROM YOU LORD.
TO BE LEAD BY YOU AND GET THAT FOOLISH MESS OUT OF THE WAY.
MAY WE ALL GROW IN GRACE AND KNOWLEDGE. IN JESUS NAME ,
AMEN, AMEN
