sorry, but this is a big, stinky pile of bullsh!t.  they simply are not
enumerating all the valid addresses in their posting.  cgi3.ebay.com has
been a valid subdomain for ages.  they even talk about it as a valid url on
their security page:


i still think the email your relative received was genuinely from ebay.  the
proof is in the headers of that email.
