Pfishing without a clue

Okay, there is someone or something I think is lower than Sen. Kennedy or Sen. Boxer.

I present to you a classic example of pfishing for a credit card:

Place or Update Credit Card on File
Dear eBay Customer ,This is your final warning about the safety of your eBay account. If you do not update your billing informations your access on eBay will be restricted and the user deleted. This might be due to either following reasons:
- A recent change in your personal information (i.e. change of address) - Submiting invalid information during the initial sign up process. - An inability to accurately verify your selected option of payment due an internal error within our processors.
Your credit card on file with eBay

Card number: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-4322 (Not shown for security purposes)
Expiration date: 11/05
Please sign in to your eBay account and update your billing information: deleted URL just in case, it came from Russia

If your account information is not updated, your ability to sell or bid on eBay will become restricted.
Thank you,eBay Billing Department

Luckily for me I see through their nefarious plot since:
a.) eBay would never ask for my credit card via email.
b.)What they do show as being 'my' credit card number is wrong.
c.)Expiration date is wrong also.

So sad, now go back flipping burgers you pizdi wankers while I report you.
