Ok, this has probably come up before (although I haven't seen it while searching...) Email threatening action against me for a purchase I haven't paid for... Any ideas? I'm not even sure if it will display properly, so might be better to upload as a pic. Any suggestions on how to go about that? Or will just forward to anyone interested if that's better... PM if that works...

Generally a phishing scam. You end up at a phishing site where you enter your eBay/PayPal info.

^^^^ Tried that last time - nothing happened... I'll let them know, but the thing is they didn't seem to be able to do anything about it, as it was just someone taking a user's address and using it from a different location. But it's all good!
Cheers,

If you can, you can also try the extra mile of seeing where it's hosted. Sometimes it's on an unsuspecting company's server/website who was hacked or exploited. If that's the case, and you contact them, they can remove the offending files.

Edit: Fixed some horrible grammar. Too many 419 emails ruining my English!

I'll take a look into that. Do I need to do a whois?

It can be helpful. Also, sometimes they throw these things /under/some/deep/_directory and you can just hit the main URL and see it's some poor schmoe's website or company. If you have any problems, let me know. You can PM me the URL they are trying to send you to if you want.
