Well at least it's new to me. Just got the email this morning. Of course it had the typical ebay banners to make it look legit. Don't fall for it.

Dear eBay User,

We recently noticed one or more attempts to login into your eBay
account from a foreign IP address and we have reasons to believe that
your account has been hijacked by a third party without your
authorization.


In order to protect your sensitive information or unauthorized listings we temporarily suspended your account for further investigations. To reactivate your account, click on the link below and confirm your identity.


If you recently accessed your account while traveling, the unusual
login attempts may have been initiated by you.

Take our apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.


Thank you

Not just eBay...

I have received scam emails like this supposedly from PayPal and credit card companies like Citibank as well. The link in the email might look like it's from eBay or whatever but when you look at the actual URL address linked, it has a foreign DNS like ".ru". The one I got that was supposed to be from Citibank was full of spelling errors.
