When you checked your account was the same message there? Any email they send you also appears in your account messages. If you don't have a copy in account messages the email is fake.

the same thing happened to me a couple of months ago what NOT to do is open any links to ebay via the email.

NEVER EVER open the links from the email - EBAY emails are one of the commonest scams at the moment.
