Just thought I would make people aware that some unscrupulous ijit is sending out emails claiming to be Ebay asking if you would like to upgrade your account to Power Seller Status.  These emails state, due to your feedback as both a seller and a buyer, you can upgrade your account to show as a Power Seller.  To access this one time offer you must click on the link included in the email.  The email seemed suspect so I checked http://pages.ebay.co.uk/safetycentre/index.html , and sent the email to spoof @ ebay . co. uk and they confirmed that the email was a spoof email, and had not been sent by them.  The two main things that caught my attention were the lack of using my offical name, and the email address ending @reply3.ebay.co.uk.  Hope this helps anyone else avoid getting caught out.
