Two things about these scams. There are a lot around at the moment.
1) No matter what emails I receive from Ebay I never click on the link in the email. Always use a bookmark/favourites in your browser that you know links to the valid site.
2) Always refer any suspect emails to the firstname.lastname@example.org address and they will soon advise you if it was indeed a genuine ebay message or a scam.
