EBAY fraud alert

I recently got an email from the "Ebay security audit team" or something to
that affect. Says they periodically verify contact information, and couldn't
verify mine, asking me to follow a link to update my account or it would be
disabled in 5 days.

I followed the link, noticed it wasn't in secure mode, and wondered why EBAY
would need my bank account number, routing/ABA numbers, not to mention SSN and
home address and credit card numbers, etc. The form asked for everything
imaginable. Yikes!

Upon getting suspicious I checked the headers and html links in the message -
needless to say - NOT ebay. Watch out for this one! I did report it to the
spoof team at Ebay.
