This is one of the least convincing Ebay scams. I hope no-one falls for it. If you do make the mistake of filling in the attached form, you will be giving the scammer all your bank and credit card information – contact your bank immediately if you think you have given this information to a scammer.
NEVER click on a link in an email that claims to come from Ebay (or a bank – or anywhere else). Enter the address of the Ebay website DIRECTLY into your browser. If there is a problem with your account you will see it on your account page. If you think you have given your Ebay details to a scammer – contact Ebay immediately. Scroll down to see a screenshot of that scam page.
