Sounds like a phishing email to me, designed to steal your personal information

Did it ask you to click on a link?

Do not do that !

 

Forward the email to

spoof@ebay.com

Look at the properties>details on the email. If it doesn't say ebay.com then it is probably not from Ebay. Look in your messages to see if the same email is in there. It sounds like phishing.
