    Got this one today...very real looking. I actually did sign in and it took me to a page to reenter all my info. I smelled scam then. I closed that window and went straight to ebay to change my password. I've already report it to ebay. Beware! Here's the email sans all the ebay graphics around it.

    Dear eBay User,

    We recently noticed one or more attempts to login into your eBay
    account from a foreign IP address and we have reasons to believe that
    your account has been hijacked by a third party without your
    authorization.


    In order to protect your sensitive information or unauthorized listings we temporarily suspended your account for further investigations. To reactivate your account, click on the link below and confirm your identity by completing the secure form that will appear.


    If you recently accessed your account while traveling, the unusual
    login attempts may have been initiated by you.

    Take our apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.


    Thank you

    This one has been going around in one form or another for a few weeks. You are right, it looks damn real .. even comes from an ebay.com email address.

    Be careful ...
