If you have received this email, please remember that it is very
common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly
different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different
provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common
place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first,
although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
The Spoof Email ...
Dear eBay Member,
Your bank has contacted us regarding some attempts of charges from your credit card via the eBay system.
We have reasons to believe that you changed your registration information or that someone else has
unauthorized access to your eBay account Due to recent activity, including possible unauthorized listings
placed on your account, we will require a second confirmation of your identity with us in order to allow us
to investigate this matter further. 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 laws. 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.
