Yeah same thing happened to me, you need to change it slightly, it cannot be exactly the same.

I'd like to address a common question we hear - How do scammers get a bidder's email address? Unfortunately, a high percentage of eBay members have registered an email address that is very close or identical to their User ID. Fraudsters attempt to send emails to the bidders they are targeting by using the User ID, plus several of the most common domain names – i.e. userid@yahoo.com , userid@gmail.com, userid@hotmail.com, userid@aol.com. This combination yields a very high success rate for them. Subsequently, too many eBay bidders get fooled – and lose their money - as an unfortunate result.

Choosing a user ID


Your answer is here. This is not on ebay (USA) although mentioned at length in their forums.

HI: They do not want you to use a similar ebay name to your email address for security reasons..
