eBay Auction Page Leads To Fake Login Page

Luckily I had read about this but was still surprised.
Doing an ebay search I went to view a page which after a few seconds flicks to the ebay login page.
First thought was of course just login I'm on ebay after all. Except the address is fake.
I'm willing to bet thousands are falling for this phishing because it's direct from a genuine ebay page.
I was going to put the links up but maybe it's safer just to stick up a couple of pics.
I thought ebay was supposed to be stopping these script timer scam pages.

And of course they are also "selling" an iPad and an iPhone 6.
I suppose the ads are posted late (11:39pm) so they have a free overnight reign to gather logins before sleepy ebay staff start appearing at 6am.

Re: eBay Auction Page Leads To Fake Login Page

Considering ebay don't allow any javascript tags in their auction html it makes me wonder how this has been achieved.
Surely someone in ebay must be a little shady perhaps?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
