eBay aims to thwart phishing

Friday, 7 January 2005, 12:24 AM EST

eBay is rolling out a private messaging service to customers to make it easier to distinguish official announcements from fraudulent 'phishing' emails.

My Messages was launched in the US late last month and will roll out to the UK later this quarter.
