Re: security issue: eBay Account Suspended

Title: Dear eBay Member
Me, too, but why bother? My "notification" was sent to an email addy I don´t use for evilBay, so it felt suspicious immediately. Same thing goes for bank notifications etc. Ignore them, there´s nothing you could do about them except maybe report them to eBay (but they also didn´t stop two scammers on eBay UK from selling fake Linn LM-1s...).

Dear loopdwellers
This is a rare occasion that I post a HTML mail to this forum.
But it is the second putative mail I get from a sender pretending to be eBay.
The worst trick is that he tries to make me click on a link that looks as if it were originating from eBay http://signin.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayIsession.dll?userconfirm&ssPageName=h?-fom:sin_US, yet when you look at the underlying HTML-source code, you see it's actually pointing to the location: http://lounge.roomfour.net/image/index.html.
The domain roomfour.net is actually registered in Germany.
Since I know that my email address was harvested from loopersdelight archive, I presume that other victims are to be found on this list.
What I want to say: DON'T react to this mail if you received it,too.

From collectibles to cars, buy and sell all kinds of items on eBay

Dear eBay Member,

Due to recent account takeovers and unauthorized listings, eBay is introducing a new account verification method. From time to time, randomly selected accounts (seller and/or buyer) are subjected to an advanced verification process based on our merchant accounts/bank relations and customers credit card. eBay may also request in an email message scanned/faxed copies of one or more photo ID's. Your account confirmation may go wrong if your credit card/bank account is expired, or if you have changed your credit card number, billing address etc. without notifying us about the change. Subject of this verification process are also the accounts that have unpaid dues to eBay.
Your account is not suspended, but if in 48 hours after you receive this message your account is not confirmed we reserve the right to suspend your eBay registration. If you received this notice and you are not the authorized account holder, please be aware that it is in violation of eBay policy to represent oneself as another eBay user. Such action may also be in violation of local, national, and/or international law. eBay is committed to assist law enforcement with any inquires related to attempts to misappropriate personal information with the intent to commit fraud or theft. Information will be provided at the request of law enforcement agencies to ensure that perpetrators are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Note: If this is the second time you receive this notice, it might be because you have made a mistake when you entered your details or that the account was not updated at all.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you and we would like to thank you for your cooperation as we review this matter.
