This looks ok as i can not log in on ebay what worries me is they have advised me that if i use this password for anything else then to change them as well !!!!! how the hell has this happend.
Did you try to log on via the email or using your normal browser > eBay log-on ???
If the former you MUST go to eBay (via your normal browser log-on) and change your password from there NOW, and as fireman328 says do the same for PayPal !!
NEVER, EVER follow links in emails, even if you think it is genuine. If there is a problem with your accounts eBay / PayPal will advise you when you log-on normally through your browser.
