Morning all, just to inform those who are not aware of it, an e-mail purporting to come from e-bay customer support is cropping up, the link takes you to a genuine looking site which asks for all the standard registration details plus a few more.

This was recived by my wife this morning who got half way through filling in the details before giving me a ring at work as she thought it all seemed a little odd ;-)
