If this is the first time you have gotten one of these your are extremely lucky (or just opened an email account.
Do not click the link, just delete it.
This is a form of spam call phishing where when you follow the link you go to a site that looks just like eBay, but it ain't eBay!
They will record what you try to log-in with and then use youe eBay
account for nasty things.

DON`T DELETE IT. Forward it to "spoof@ebay.com" they will try and track it.

I agree, forward to ebay so they can at least try to catch these @rseholes.

BTW, NO reputable organisation sends out emails asking you to confirm security details.
