to this conclusion, please know that we took this action in order to maintain the safety of your account.

However, your account is marked for too many successful logins last week (January, 20-28, 2005).

It is more interesting that the hostnames are from different countries:

Sweden (c213-100-93-27.swipnet.se)

Thank you for using eBay!

Do not click on the link and enter you're debit/credit card details. This has been reported to eBay and i'm awaiting a response but know its not right becasue the email address they used is not one I use anymore.

:mat: Be careful.

I get about 2 of these a week from eBay and about 3 sometimes more a week from pay pal. All have suspended my accounts and want me to re-enter password and bank details :huh:

eBay and pay pal say they would NEVER send anyone an email either asking for personal information or with a link to logging in

some really basic tips.

1 - use firefox - not internet explorer. Many of these scam sites using a floating layer to position the eBay / paypal url over your address bar.

Firefox has a different layout - so this does not work

2 - there is a firefox extension called Spoofstick.

This extension shows you the true domain of a page in a bar at the top of your browser. If you are ever in any doubt as to if you are on a "real" site, or a scam one - the spoofstick bar will tell you.

lol!

thats because the original poster posted a link to eBay!

presumably, thats the text of the link - so it looked like an eBay link, but was directed to another scam site, a bit like the one below.
