    and the hyperlink from this pic is:

    I've received similar notices. Sneaky, huh?

    I usually send them to eBay to investigate, I'm sure they must have a full time staff to deal with this garbage!

    I don't get it, I put all of my info there and it worked fine. Redirected me back to ebay when I was done...

    Sneaky, using a fake URL in the message like that. There's now also an IE exploit that can more effectively fake the URL address too.
