Interesting you got that message at all. Is eBay now being attacked by spammers?

"Interesting" is not exactly what flooded into my mind when I received it. I was out-and-out paranoid!! Just got this EB account up & running. Feel like I should be wearing black & sk-mask when I list

I don't think it's a big issue. Just ignore it.
