I got burned by a similiar email last year! Do Not Resond!


Here is what ebay said when I sent the email to them today:




Thank you for contacting eBay's Trust and Safety Department about email

solicitations that are falsely made to appear to have come from eBay.

These emails, commonly referred to as "spoof" messages, are sent in an

attempt to collect sensitive personal information from recipients who

reply to the message or click on a link to a Web page requesting this



The email you reported did not originate from, nor is it endorsed by,

eBay. We are very concerned about this problem and are working

diligently to address the situation. We have investigated the source of

this email and have taken appropriate action. You may rest assured that

your account standing has not changed and that your listings have not

been affected.


We advise you to be very cautious of email messages that ask you to

submit information such as your credit card number or your email

password. eBay will never ask you for sensitive personal information

such as passwords, bank account or credit card numbers, Personal

Identification Numbers (PINs), or Social Security numbers in an email

itself. If you ever need to provide information to eBay please open a

new Web browser, type www.ebay.com, and click on the "site map" link

located at the top the page to access the eBay page you need.


If you have any doubt about whether an email message is from eBay,

please forward it immediately to spoof@ebay.com and do not respond to it

or click on any of the links in the email message. Please do not change

the subject line or forward the email as an attachment.


If you entered personal information such as your password, social

security number or credit card numbers into a Website based on a request

from a spoofed email, you need to take immediate action to protect your

identity. We have developed an eBay Help page with valuable information

regarding the steps you should take to protect yourself.


To get to the "Protecting Your Identity" Help page from the eBay site,

please click on the "help" link located at the top of most eBay pages

and select the following topics when the "eBay Help Center" window



Safe Trading > If Something Goes Wrong > Identity Theft


We encourage you to review additional information about protecting your

identity found in the eBay Help system. Please click on the "help" link

located at the top of most eBay pages and select the following topics

when the "eBay Help Center" window appears:


Safe Trading > If Something Goes Wrong& > Account Theft > Account



Once again, thank you for alerting us to the spoof email you received.

Your vigilance helps us ensure that eBay remains a safe and vibrant

online marketplace.

Yeah be wary of those. Remember that ebay NEVER asks you in an email for personal info. I read the first part of one of those before, and linked to it and it actually went to ebay, but when you read further down it asks you for EVVERRRYYYTHHINNNG...almost down to underwear and shoe size. Thats when you KNOW its fake.
