You may hear much about the importance of email headers - well they are important, but also sometimes difficult for the average computer user to interpret or understand. As discussed in our article on Online Identity Theft involving hoax email scams, almost an entire email header can be forged or spoofed and text, graphics and links 'robbed' from genuine sites, BUT it is possible to see that an email has NOT come from the people that it purports to by examining the header data.
Despite the hidden elements that prove it to be a hoax, tracing the perpetrators of these email scams can be even harder. It is possible, for instance, to relay email through more than one open SMTP server (i.e. those that do not require user authentication to send email through) and also through anonymous mail clients and remailers by which point the true origin is completely lost. Please take a moment to read our article and always be suspicious of any email which asks you to provide user, bank or credit card data.
The email seems genuine, and even includes eBays own graphics...
