While I have never received an email saying that my card couldn't be
charged, I have received numerous correspondance with my customer
account number written in the email (it follows the same format as the
one your mother-in-law received).  The most recent one was for an
invoice that I received November of last year.

I can't be sure about the CC thing, but I think that whoever was
handling support at EBay is a bit confused as to what they do/don't send
via email.
