In email it is a never ending chore of working out what emails are genuine send via ebay system or some lousy mug trying to steal and take over your account,
USE MY MESSAGES
I have been getting good at working out whether an email is genuine or phishing for information about me.
don't click on any links in email. especially if it comes to your private email inbox, Ebay messages sent from Ebay are normally found in your My Messages.
if you are unsure send to spoof at ebay.com they will let you know if it is genuine or not
