Wow, that's a new one. Sounds odd, though. Why would someone pay for or even click on a link for an item they know they never purchased? Maybe someone used your ID.

That email address isn't even associated with my ebay account.

I've had that happen. I think I even posted it in this forum. I'd received emails from eBay at an email address that wasn't even the one associated with my ID. Even more reason to wonder why they would even bother trying something like that. You'd have to pretty senile (or buy so much you don't even remember your purchases) to take it seriously.

They are probably looking for people that click to log in to dispute the claim without thinking about what email address is associated with their ebay id or if they've even been on ebay recently. With all the identity theft stuff on TV and the threat of being hacked, they want to try to avoid that from happening to them.
