Default instantly report phishing with gmail


As I was hitting the "Show Original Message" link on my gmail account,
I noticed that there was a "Report Phishing" link on my gmail account.

Very cool.. Anyway here is the latest phishing attempt I got.
This one is supposedly from ebay. It is saying that some has added a
seller to my account. The only thing is that I don't have an ebay
account attached to this email.

So view the source of an email from your gmail account click "Show
Options" Then "Show Original Message":

In the message below, the original message was sent from

Here it is:
