"Etsy Account Scam Alert...

"Etsy Account Scam Alert...

I just want to put out an alert to everyone with an Etsy account. This has happened to me twice in the last few days. I received an e-mail from Etsy saying that  I need to sign in to recover my account. There's a link in the e-mail that's provided. Once you click on that link and sign in you will be taken directly to a page where you are required to update your info including credit card numbers. I was curious and clicked, checked the link to see where it originated and know that it was a scam. The second time I received an e-mail I rolled over the link to see the web address and it's not an Etsy address at all.
Times are tough, please be careful
