I just received the following email, suppoosedly from ebay...

Question about Item #547414276682 - Respond Now

eBay sent this message on behalf of an eBay member through My Messages.
Dear member,

eBay member timeautoparts has left you a message regarding item #547414276682

clicking their link takes you to what appears to be an EBAy signon panel but with the following URL..

looks like a fairly unsophisticated Phishing attempt to get userids and passwords. Just thought it was something our membership might like to avoid.

When I get this sort of message, I go directly to ebay and check my Messages in my Account.

Best way to avoid and scammers/phishers.

Meanwhile, jacko, thanks for the heads up...
