I got a note from E-bay (links confirmed) warning about this message,
decrying it, and suggesting that I look into their privacy management page
for their full particulars. Specifically, their page says they'll never ask
for any of this information, and that any such requests *should* be reported
to them.

Subject: 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
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.
