Anyone else receive a similar e-mail (below) today??? Did MPWR@YAHOO.COM change his eBay id to mpwr2@migente.com or has his identity actually been stolen?

I didn't get that one. But a few days ago I got one they said I had bid auctions I didn't bid on, and if the bids were inaccurate that I should contact eBay.

My guess is that it was an ant-eBayer hoping to get people to complain to eBay and clog their complaint lines. They obviously underestimated my laziness.

As if ebay's own conduct didn't generate enough complaints to clog their system...

It contained a virus file attachment!

Check the date and the name of the winner - I suspect it's a new virus that finds old emails on an infected computer and sends them to people in the infectee's address book.
