Mate that spoofstick thing is wicked. Altho its very simple i dont think many people know about it. I think you should put it in downloads or something. Rep points awarded for it anyway cheers for that!

I have actually had emails from paypal like this that were genuine BUT I treat all of them as spoofs. That's the safest way.

If you are unsure - navigate to paypal / ebay manually by typing in the URL and loging in as normal. If the email was genuine they will normally have a notification come up on the screen when you log in. But remember...

NEVER FOLLOW AN AUTOMATED LINK GIVEN IN AN EMAIL.
