    I get about 3 of these things a day. Definitely a dodgy email mate.

    If you put your mouse over the links, you can plainly see that they actually link to nowhere near Ebay.

    I get Barclays emails every day telling me to log in to my account and change my password. Shame I never had or ever will have a Barclays bank account.
