Ebay warning

I received an Email today saying that it was from Ebay and they wanted me to update my credit information. There is a link to go to with a form to fill out. I believe it is someone wanting to steal personal identity. I have sent a copy to Ebay. Here is the email I received.If you receive one of these DO NOT GIVE THEM THE INFORMATION.

I've never placed a bid on Ebay anyway, for that particular reason. I don't like the idea of putting any account information out over the web.

I was thinking of opening a seperate bank account with seperate credit card for internet transactions, otherwise I also do not give info over net.

Discover card does a "virtual credit card" system, where they give you a "temporary" credit card number that's only good for one transaction. (They map that number to your real number, but the person that you're paying doesn't get your real number).
