    a good way to check is hover over the link and see if the hover over link points to ebay or an ip address or different domain, theres no way to fake that
    It is Inevitable.....

    scam all the way

    i lol when i received 3 within a few weeks, onto my email address where the ebay account was closed! quite funny!

    one thing, is that, any site that asks you to enter in your details to 'check' or revalidate is (prob) most definitely a fraud!

    at least u spotted it!

    If it says "Dear eBay Member" then it's a scam. Official mailings will use your real name, and ask you to visit the homepage to login and read more about the issue.
