Thank you for writing to eBay regarding the email you received.

Emails such as this, commonly referred to as "spoof" or "phished"
messages, are sent in an attempt to collect sensitive personal or
financial information from the recipients.

The email you reported was not sent by eBay. We have reported this email
to the appropriate authorities.

In the future, be very cautious of any email that asks 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. If you ever need to
provide sensitive information to us, please open a new Web browser, type into your browser address field, and click on the "site

password into a Web site based on a request from a spoofed email, you
should take immediate action to protect your identity and all of your
online accounts. We have developed an eBay Help page with valuable
information regarding the steps you should take to protect yourself.

i've not yet received one email from paypal or ebay about anything that was actually sent from them. I just delete it anymore..
if you think it might be true, go to your account and see if it's been suspended or whatever.

Some others coming around are the e-mails for Citi-Bank and Sun-Trust Banks.

They want you to verify your passwords, accounts and such. Its amazing, I recieved both of the e-mails and don't even have accounts with them. Scams and Scammers:boxing:

I get that crap all the time when I am ebaying alot. I get paypal ones too. They try and put the squeeze on saying **** like "we need to update your files ot your account will be deleted" I foreward everything to [email protected] and usually within 20 minutes or so they send a reply saying it didn't come from them blah blah blah, but I don't think they actually take any action over them. Just mkore B.S. you have to learn to filter out when you deal with ebay.
