Default Bogus Ebay email???

Have not had any activity in months...

Dear broncobirdy,

Due to recent activity, including possible unauthorized listings, we have temporarily suspended activity on your account in order to allow us to investigate this matter further. If you believe that this action may have been taken in error, or, if you feel that your account may have been tampered with, please contact our Live Help team so that we can provide additional information and work with you to resolve this issue.

You can reach the Account Theft Live Help team by taking the following steps:

- Click on the "Security Center" link at the bottom of most eBay pages.
- Click on the "eBay Account Protection" link in the eBay Marketplace section, within the Online Security Resources box.
- This will take you to the help page entitled Securing Your Account and Reporting Account Theft.
- Scroll down the help page to the section entitled Contacting eBay.
- Click on the "Live help" link.

Once you have clicked on the "Live Help" link, you will be prompted to enter a chat name or email address along with a topic related to your reason for contacting eBay. After you have entered this information, the next available representative will assist you.

In the event that you are unable to contact eBay through Live Help after taking these steps, respond directly to this message to request assistance. We will contact you by email after we have received your response.

Please allow at least 72 hours for an email reply. Emailing us prior to receiving our reply will result in an additional delay. In order to handle your concern as quickly and efficiently as possible, we encourage you to contact us through Live Help if you are able to do so.

If you received this notice and you are not the authorized account holder, please be aware that it is in violation of eBay policy to represent oneself as another eBay user. Such action may also be in violation of local, national, and/or international law. eBay is committed to assist law enforcement with any inquiries related to attempts to misappropriate personal information with the intent to commit fraud or theft. Information will be provided at the request of law enforcement agencies to ensure that perpetrators are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Don't ever open an email from "ebay" from your email page. all legit ebay mail will be listed in "my ebay" when you log on.

Just got off with live chat. Verified with a phone call. "Yeah its me" was about all it took. My account was suspended because of a third party intervention.
Password reset. Hard to tell from emails or messages sent from ebay on their site.
Was assured CC info was on a seperate sever and secure.
Thanks for the help...
