I just got an email from a customer of mine asking me if this was a
At first glance it appears to be a legit email, but I'm not familiar
with eBay that much and this link:
Here is the email she forwarded to me:
> *From:* Meg Whitman <mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
> *To:* [EMAIL PROTECTED] <mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]>

> Dear xxxxxxx,
> As you know, I almost never reach out to you personally with a request
> to get involved in a debate in the U.S. Congress. However, today I feel
> I must.
> Right now, the telephone and cable companies in control of Internet
> access are trying to use their enormous political muscle to dramatically
> change the Internet. It might be hard to believe, but lawmakers in
> Washington are seriously debating whether consumers should be free to
> use the Internet as they want in the future.
> The phone and cable companies now control more than 95% of all Internet
> access. These large corporations are spending millions of dollars to
> promote legislation that would divide the Internet into a two-tiered
> The top tier would be a "Pay-to-Play" high-speed toll-road restricted to
> only the largest companies that can afford to pay high fees for
> preferential access to the Net.
> The bottom tier -- the slow lane -- would be what is left for everyone
> else. If the fast lane is the information "super-highway," the slow lane
> will operate more like a dirt road.
> Today's Internet is an incredible open marketplace for goods, services,
> information and ideas. We can't give that up. A two lane system will
> restrict innovation because start-ups and small companies -- the
> companies that can't afford the high fees -- will be unable to succeed,
> and we'll lose out on the jobs, creativity and inspiration that come
> with them.
> The power belongs with Internet users, not the big phone and cable
> companies. Let's use that power to send as many messages as possible to
> our elected officials in Washington. Please join me by clicking here
> <http://click3.ebay.com/306460395.64016.0.94684> right now to send a
> message to your representatives in Congress before it is too late. You
> can make the difference.
> Thank you for reading this note. I hope you'll make your voice heard
