StubHub! Where fans buy and sell ticketsTM
Origins: In October 2011 spammed e-mails went out purporting to be notices of impending purchases of expensive tickets to a boxing match through the StubHub ticket reseller site. The notices were part of a phishing scam intended to capture personal information from alarmed recipients who attempted to use the phony links embedded in the messages to log in to their accounts and cancel charges for what appeared to be mistaken or unauthorized purchases.
StubHub has since posted a warning about the scam on its site:
If you have not clicked on any of the links contained in the email, you can safely delete it.
