    Credit/Debit Card Payment Declined!


    Hello Dear Member,
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EBay Account ID: E15524297001-USD
    Card number: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-1738 (Not shown for security purposes)
    Outstanding Payment Due: $1.15

    We are writing to alert you that your monthly eBay seller fees have not been paid because
    credit/debit card declined eBay's attempt to automatically deduct the amount due.

    Because eBay will not be able to collect funds for payment from this credit/debit card, based
    on the transaction decline reason, it has been taken off file from your account. Please sign in to
    your eBay account and update your billing information:

    Please note that this notice may not reflect payments made within the past 5 business days.
    If your balance is $0.00 or you have recently made a payment, please disregard this message.

    As a reminder, past due accounts may be restricted from buying or selling until payment is received.

    This is the key. ALL legitimate e-mails will use your username/name.

    In 99% of cases e-mails which don't address you by name and which want info from you will be fraudulant :)

    Yours fondly,
