Default eBay phishing scam

Just received a couple of e-mails from ebay - apparently I'm in trouble from a user for not delivering items, and the person is going to report me to eBay and the police.

Which is odd because I've never used eBay for anything.

Yep, it's another phishing scam.

Here's how the text reads:

I have not received any item from you, what happend, I've sent you the money, now were is my item ? If you don't Respond Now I will contact ebay and I will report you, I will also go to the police !Lett me know, I am not a fool !

Thank you !
