I'm sure you guys have seen these before, but here's an email I just received from "ebay"

Well, it's nice that ebay is policing such things, but unfortunately I've never done what they are suggesting. Ergo, I believe this to be a scam of the first order. The form to fill out is quite nice with all sorts of ebay links and logos, all of which would be pretty easy to duplicate with pretty minimal knowledge of HTML. Well, that and a click and paste.
If indeed it turns out to be true, no big deal to me. Though I would like to know where this supposed violation occurred? Ahem.
