    Never click a redirect link on such e-mail. 9 out of 10 are hoax and fake. If Paypal or eBay ask you to do some thing like confirmation or re-enter particulars, they will also ask you to do it by logging on their site but never through a redirect link on the e-mail. They also will have mail system within your account, just log to the site. If you don't see any mail in the site mail system regarding this then the e-mail you recevied is a fake. Also you say hotmail. eBay will never sent thing to public free e-mail provider account.

    Actually, not to scare you or anything, but the good ones, when you clicked on the link and got to a site that appears to do nothing, there may already be Bad Things (tm) done in your computer....
    So use some some anti-virus or spybot or something to do a quick scan just to be abit kiasu....

    Hi I received something similar:

    Dear eBay Member,

    We regret to inform you that your eBay account will be suspended due
    to concerns we have for the safety and integrity of the eBay community.

    "Abusing eBay" of the eBay User Agreement states, in part:

    "...we may limit, suspend, or terminate our service and user accounts,
    prohibit access to our website, remove hosted content, and take
    technical and legal steps to keep users off the Site if we think that they are
    creating problems, possible legal liabilities, or acting inconsistently
    with the letter or spirit of our policies."

    Due to the suspension of this account, please be advised you are
    prohibited from using eBay in any way. This includes the registering of a new
    account.

    To avoide this suspension please login into you account and follow the instructions:

    https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI...d=siteid=0page

    Please note that any seller fees due to eBay will immediately become
    due and payable. eBay will charge any amounts you have not previously
    disputed to the billing method currently on file.



    Thanks for your patience as we work together to protect your service.

    Regards,

    And stupidly, I went to the link and filled up all my details asking for credit card details and stopped when they also asked for a PIN number.

    I immediately thought that something was fishy and wrote to ebay itself and they told me that they never sent me any such email and NOT TO GIVE ANY DETAILS out.

    Luckily I did not do anything - it was a close call!

    If in doubt, write to ebay and ask them yourself.

    Just delete the mail. No point notifying anyone else in hotmail as that will create more unnecessary mail.
    Mine is even a joke... I never have ebay account then my webmail recieve such email

    I wonder you need to re-issue your credit card with a new number? As you have given some/all detail to them already

    Sayonara, prepare to see ur credit card go bust as it makes its way into the hacker community.

    Inform ur credit card company about this incident, get them to re-issue u a new card and cancel ur card immediately. Monitor ur bill closely from now onwards.
