TKO NOTICE: Compromised Accounts - eBay Registration Suspension - firstname.lastname@example.org
In an effort to protect your eBay account security, we have suspended your account until such time that it can be safely restored to you. We have taken this action because your password may have been compromised. Sometimes this happens when members respond to an email asking for personal information. Although those emails appear to come from eBay, they are really sent by people attempting to gain access to your account. Although we cannot disclose our investigative procedures that led to this conclusion, please know that we took this action in order to maintain the safety of your account.
Please change the password that you use on the EMAIL account that you have registered to your eBay account. Make sure that it is also different from the password that you use on your eBay account. By doing this we can ensure that you are the only one that can access any further communication we may have with you.
Once you have taken steps to secure your email, please fill the following form for restoring access to your account. You can reach the Restore Form by viewing the page below:
Programs that block pop-up windows may prevent you from accessing Restore Form. If this is the case, you may be able to temporarily disable the program or configure the program to allow pop-ups on the eBay site in order to use Restore Form. Additionally, Restore Form may not work with some web browsers. If you continue to experience difficulties, you may be able to use Live Help by updating your browser to the most recent version or by using a different program to access the eBay site.
If you are unable to contact eBay through Restore Form 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 be aware that there may be a delay in responses sent by email. In order to handle your concern as quickly and efficiently as possible, we encourage you to contact us through Restore Form if you are able to do so.

What Is This?
This Email with the Subject "TKO NOTICE: Compromised Accounts - eBay Registration Suspension - firstname.lastname@example.org" was
received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 27 Aug 2006 23:28:36 -0700 and has been classified as a
Generic Scam Email. The sender shows as "eBay" <email@example.com>,
although that address was probably spoofed. We recommend that you do not attempt to contact any persons or organizations referenced in
this email, as you may expose yourself to scammers and, at the very least, you will be added to their email address lists for spam purposes.
Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.
And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we
hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
