    It says that if I don't sign in and update within 72 hours that my ebay account will be considered fraudulent and suspended! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Do they really think that I'm that stupid? I clicked on the link and it opened a new window with the ebay "sign in" stuff, I didn't type anything (no user name, no password) and hit "sign in" and it took me to the credit card update page (on a non-secure site) as if I had signed in. What a bunch of idiots...

    Dear eBay member,

    You have received this email because you or someone else had used your identity to make false purchases on eBay. For security reasons, we are required to open an investigation on this matter. We treat online fraud seriously and all cases which cannot be resolved between eBay and the other involved party are forwarded for further investigations to the proper authorities. To speed up this process, you are required to verify your personal information against the eBay account registration data we have on file by following the link below.

    Please save this fraud alert id for your reference.

    When submitting sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL.
    Please Note - If your account information is not updated within the next 72 hours, we will assume this account is fraudulent and it will be suspended. We apologize for this inconvenience, but the purpose of this verification is to ensure that your eBay account has not been fraudulently used and to combat fraud.

    This has been up a few times in the past few weeks in this forum. IIRC, it is a scam.

    Ya, it's a scam alright, and a poor one at best. I'm no wizard, and even I caught this one /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
