My dad got this in his email and since I do the ebay thing he asked me to look at it. I told him it's a scam and to delete it immediately.

I deleted the http part of the address so no one here would inadvertently click it.

I’ve read warnings by both ebay and paypal that if you deal with them the URL must always be the start with their name (www.ebay.com/……anything before that like in this scam is fake.

Thank you very much for letting us know, it is really good to know all the ways these scammers tries.
