    The mail looks almost real and a normal person would fall for this type of email.

    Cheers for the warning, I've had a few of those emails myself, including a very convincing one from "GoDaddy", the trick is to open the browser and log into eBay from there

    Seen something similiar last month. A mate of mine was trying to buy a boat off ebay from a seller who offered to do a buy it now offer including delivery. He sent the proper invoice with payment details very similiar to the above.

    Boat was too cheap so I knew it was a scam but still had to read through the invoice twice to find a redirect email address and two simple grammar mistakes.

    They are not winning but they are getting more pro
