Default Spoofers almost gave me a heart attack today!

Been up and running again for about a month. Took my son Christmas shopping this morning and checked my e-mail on the way home from my Blackberry and got this:

"Subject: FPF NOTICE: eBay Registration Suspension -Section 9-

From: eBay Safeharbor Department SD38 <suspension@ebay.com.cn>
Date: Sat, Dec 06, 2008 8:53 am
To: ****

I've been on eBay since '97, so I'm normally pretty good at spotting spoofs, but since it was on my Blackberry, I couldn't really tell. I was about ready to cry! Had to call my wife at home and have her log into eBay and make sure it wasn't real. Thank god it wasn't. Until my accounts got taken down last month, I never would have even thought it would have been real, but I am sure you guys can understand why I am scared every time I open up my e-mail!
