So today I got an email from some auction site called congratulating me on winning a auction. I checked them out online and they sound like bad news. Anyway, here's the email:

Dear iwantsome123,

You are the WINNER of a Auction!

Listing # a_13891367

Listing Description:
Darling Earrings With Genuine Garnets in Solid Yellow Gold

Winning Bid (Your Price): $4.00 USD American Dollars

Your Credit Card will not be charged automatically. Credit Card
charges will apply only after you enter all the necessary information
on our secure
payment page:

If you won a Certified Merchant item, you need to pay the Certified
Merchant directly.


When you place a bid on, you are entering into a legally
binding contract.
We ask you to please bid only on items that you intend to purchase.

Payment is due upon receipt of this e-mail. If an item is not paid for
within 5 days, it will be re-listed.
Non-payment for 1 (one) or more winning bids will result in suspension
and/or termination of your
bidding privileges.

I've never heard of these guys, and certainly never signed up. My question is, did someone get ahold of my CC info, or is this a marketing ploy?

Posts: 583 is a legitimate online auction site. I would contact them and let them know about this so that if an auction was indeed bid on using your credit card, they'll put a flag on the account and close it so that it can no longer be used. I would also call your credit card companies to activate a flaud alert. They will most likely recommend that you cancel your cards and send you new ones.
