I hope you can see immediately that this Ebay email is a fake. It starts by telling me that my “registered name is included to show this message originated from eBay.” I’m sure you can see that your registered name is nowhere to be seen. This notice did not come from Ebay.
NEVER click on a link in an email that tells you there is a problem with your Ebay account. ALWAYS enter the Ebay web address directly into your browser.
If you click on the link in this email you will find a scammer asking for your credit card details.
