How about this -- when you get an e-mail supposedly from PayPal or
eBay, you shouldn't use the built-in links, just go to
http://www.ebay.com *MANUALLY* and sign in.  Once you get there, if
there really was a problem with your account, they would go from

eBay has no right to shut down your account when they didn't warn you
through a reliable method -- and no, e-mail IS NOT reliable.

If you enter the URL yourself, you shouldn't be worried.  Unless
there's been a MAJOR DNS hack, you'll end up at the right place.
