I got an eBay one in September saying my account had been suspended as it had been used fradulently or something like that. It looked quite convincing and had the eBay buttons etc. Follow this link to continue which probably would have asked me to log in.

It was in a Hotmail account that I had never registered with eBay.

I have had a few of these emails saying 'click on the link to update your details as your account is about to expire' they are spoofs. I rang them about this, which confirmed this was a spoof email and they advised the following:
Never click on any link, this confirms to them that is your email address,
Once you have registered with paypal and ebay, they will never ask you your personnel details or account details ever again,
Always forward the emails to: [email protected] or [email protected] and they will investigate them.
Hope this helps a few of you out there that receive them.
