    I've recieved that one already.
    In the past 4 months I've recieved a few that were far more cleverly crafted than that one is.

    When you get one of those, forward the entire message to;

    spoof@ebay.com

    They will deal with these things.
    But, I do think it would be nice if they put that address to report these things to in a more prominent place on their site - it just wasn't easy to find at all.

    One of the emails I got seeking "renewal" of my personal info linked me to a very well crafted site that looked amazingly like eBay's. Within just a few hours of my forwarding the email to the above address, the site was no longer available.

    I do think eBay works hard to protect their community, and thanks to The Register too for helping to make people aware of these scams:thumb:
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
