MAINZ – Computer users should be wary of certain emails made to appear as if they have been sent by eBay.

Cyber criminals have adapted these to spread damaging software, according to the consumer centre of Rhineland Palatinate in Mainz, central Germany.

The email appears to deal with legal fees in connection with purchases on eBay which prompts readers to open an attachment. Once opened, the virus which is attached to the computer will infect the computer.
