More Confused than Usual

The scam below almost caught me this morning. Suspicious to the point of being paranoid, having received what looked like an email from eBay, telling me my account had been used for fraud, I went to the URL to have a look. Ten seconds later I was convinced that it was a scam so I closed my browser but not only are such emails common, they are increasingly sophisticated and plausible enough to stimulate a reaction from even the super suspicious among us!

eBay Fraud Investigation Fraud Investigation ! Fraud. Without limiting any other remedies, eBay may suspend or terminate your account if we suspect that you (by conviction, settlement, insurance or escrow investigation, or otherwise) have engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the Site.
