    I have been banned from EBAY. No reason or explanation given and the step by step ebay query guide is useless.

    I wasnt even active and I was banned. Hate Ebay.

    Al, I get those too - They are not from eBay!

    Hold your curser over the eBay link on the email and check the status bar at the bottom - it wont be eBay, its a scam to get you to put your details in.

    Strange that only one of those 4 members actually seem to exist on ebay.

    Sounds like someone might be trying it one with you, or you've been cloned for naughty purporses - might be worth seing what ebay can do for you

    I don't trust Ebay. I don't even use it cuz of all the scams people try with you. They should do something more secure so nothing like that happens.

    log in to ebay - are those emails in your ebay inbox?

    Check fro there for your listings of items sold by you to see if you have been cloned identity - also check your address too - as if it has been cloned - they will change this too.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    If you 'right click' on the email, select 'properties' then general. You can see the exact path the email has come from, and it's obvious when it's not a genuine ebay email

    Send these details to e-bay Al.

    Any quieries like this, they're very good at sorting out.

    Sounds like a scam for your details to me.
