I agree . . . it has all the trappings of a hoax to harvest accounts and
their log-in passwords.
The site address (ww16.brinkster.com) translates to an IP address of
22.214.171.124 which is part of a block (126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52) assigned
to Brinkster, Inc. Brinkster's upstream provider is HiSpeed Hosting (has a
much larger IP block, 184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11, that includes Brinkster's)
and is also known as (or is part of) "datapipe.com" or "datapip.net" which
sounds a lot like a DSL or similar provider.
The more I dug, the more suspicious I got. You have a good radar
system. The first tell-tale is what looks to be a URL for one site when
it's "href" in the HTML is actually a completely different URL.
BTW, "www.ebay.com" has an IP address of 18.104.22.168 in a completely
different block, assigned to "exodus.net" which is part of Cable & Wireless
