    ebay will never ask you for your password except when obviously logging in normally. theres no reason you would need to verify your name and password if they were suspending the account anyways they would just do it.

    delete the email. i bet you the link you see isn't really where it goes.

    Hoover over the link below and look in the lower left to see where it really takes you.

    I did a trace of the webpage that you posted and the ebay webpage that I know is legit. And it appears legit. But if you want to calm your worries, you can got to the security center area on the Ebay website. Once you send the email to them, they will let you know if it is fake or not. Usually they let you know within a couple of hours.

    Yeah I would have said for you to send it to spoof@ebay.com but I couldn't remember how the process went. I believe you just froward it. Maybe somebody that has done this recently can chime in. It has been a while since I had to do this. When I sent mine in, Ebay gave me an answer in less than an hour and they verified that it was fake. On second thought, don't take my word as to it being legit. I don't know if it is possible, but it might have some kind of coding within the email that would reroute it. I don't know for sure. But I would send it to ebay since if it is fake they themselves will try to track down and prosecute the source.
