It then takes you to a sign in screen asking for your Member Name and password. From there it probably goes on to ask for Credit Card or other vital info. I didn't click anymore.

*** If you have an eBay account, they will have any emails sent to you by the real eBay under "My Measages" in your account. Simply go to eBay .com and sign in etc.

So If you don't see it in your real account, guess what, its fake.

Send those to [email protected] I think and they will take it from there. I get those on a regular basis from clowns fishing for my info.
