Me, too, but why bother? My "notification" was sent
to an email addy I donīt use for evilBay, so it felt suspicious immediately.
Same thing goes for bank notifications etc. Ignore them, thereīs nothing you
could do about them except maybe report them to eBay (but they also didnīt stop
two scammers on eBay UK from selling fake Linn LM-1s...).
Lifeīs great, the worldīs bad.

wouldnīt believe the things they do." (Gary Numan / "Down in the Park")

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.
