I got them as well, it's scam mail and you need to email the company that you are receiving them and they will fix it for you.

Good lord man... DO NOT COMPLETE THEIR FORMS.

They will simply trap your UN and PW and purchase things on your account. Also, they will have access to your credit card. Best thing to do is contact ebay directly.

According to eBay, PayPal, banks, etc. the EASIEST way to tell when it's phishing -- the REAL company e-mails will use your name, not your user ID. Just FYI.

That's not to say ALL e-mails that use your name are legit, but that's at lease somewhere to start.

It's a scam, Mr. ROYC75. Definately.

Whatever you do, DO NOT OPEN THE EMAIL. This is critically important.

Email them back with a virus in the email. That would be funny.

I'd like to help, but I don't have time. It seems that I just won the International European E-Mail Lottery, and I've only got 24 hours to send them my bank information or they'll select another winner.

I'd give them the info the requested. I just recently took an offer of splitting $20 billion that some nice man in Ecuador got from his Uncle's friend. I think he owned some part of a rainforest that a large foreign bank wanted. Anyways, I'm still waiting on my cash, but it should be here any day now.
