FPA NOTICE: eBay Registration Suspension

How do I know this email is a scam?  First – it doesn’t address you by your registered eBay username.  Second – if you hover a mouse over the link in the email and don’t click, you will see that the web address displayed is not ebay.  This is a scammer who is after your credit card details.  Look what you are asked for – I’ve taken screenshots.  NEVER click on a link in an eBay email, even if you think it is genuine.  ALWAYS type the address of the your local eBay website directly into your browser.  If there is a problem with your account you will find a message in your account area.
