Is this a scam? Asking for my bank details... but they already have them??

If you sell on eBay, it could be the change to payments going directly into your bank account, rather than back to PayPal.

I wouldn't click on any links in the email, just log onto eBay directly, and see if you get the same message on there?

Buy something dirt cheap & no postage and see what happens.
And yes, it’s a scam.

I do not take notice of anything like that in case it is a scam.

I received the same request but ignored it. The Facebook police haven’t appeared as yet!

Not a scam, i kept ignoring mine until i lost my account. All to do with PAYPAL. Needs to acted on of you want to continue using the site.

Whatever you do, don't click on any links in the email. Close it down and go to Paypal separately, making sure that the site name starts with https (s for secure). If you need to do anything, you can do it from there without risking being sent to a scam site.
