Its totally bogus!!


I have gotten about 4-5 of these "security check or update your info" type emails.


Ebay says they will never email you asking you for this type of info.


The tip off is when they ask for your bank account numbers and SS number.


I use ny email address for my Ebay name which gives these people an easy way to do this.

Not Legit! This is one of the ways people can take over your Ebay account.
