Why would you even post this here?
All you have to do is log in to ebay, and look under your 'messages' section, all offiail mail from them is kept there.
i was just bringing this to members attentions,i have emailed ebay about this but i think other hukd members may benefit from knowing about this
When in doubt forward to spam@ebay.co.uk and they will confirm legitimate or not within 24 hrs
i have emailed ebay,but to suspend you and not let you create another account lol total fake,plus as said above i checked my messages thru ebay and none in the inbox plus this was in my spam box
As you have left your email address in the op you will be getting a few more
lol,i dont look worried
i get spam email anyway,some people have nothing better to do with there time
At least I'll thank you for bringing this to my attention.

I used to get these all the time, plus fake spoofed e-mails saying that they had payed for my goods, like the other dude said check your ebay e-mail account and also log onto paypal to check if the person has actually payed for your goods. Also you can change your seller settings so time wasters with no feedback cannot bid on your auctions. One more thing I would filter the e-mail your getting straight into the trash folder.
yeah my hotmail does filter these emails,this was sittin in my junk and i also have the bit where sellers with zero sales cannot bid on my stuff
