It had images in it like a regular email like when they send ones out for promotions and such... i had my account hacked into before but it was done through paypal... i never clicked on anything...

I've gotten very official looking spam email about eBay in the past but nothing like that one. Guess all you can really do is check your "My ebay" and see if someone has hacked you (assume you already did that)? and send the letter on to eBay and wait for your form letter :)

Ya I did... no reply from them yet...

It looks soooo real... i'm comparing it to the road trip one but the road trip had my name on it not my id name...

Oh well... hopefully... eBay gets back to me to let me know...
