People have been doing that for paypal and best buy etc for a while. They get really sneaky when they actually link the emails pictures and links to the home site.

Oh yeah good call, I wasn't saying anything about your post, but that stuff just bothers me.

One time i got an email from "best buy" Asking for my username and password because of a "database crash". I had never created a user/shopper at best buy.com....

I got a fake eBay message like this, what tipped me off was when it asked for my e-mail address.
