EBAY and AMAZON

I have gotten them from "amazon" stating "order number X was cancelled and please click on the below file for more information".  Because I order so much on amazon, I almost thought it was real and clicked on it but then went to the amazon site and looked at "my open orders".  It always pays to goto the site, not believe email.

I think it might just be coincidence. I've gotten about 10 of them and 
haven't been to ebay or amazon in months.
Most of them have been for >60 dollar books.

I have received bogus emails from both of the above on Friday. 

These look like I bought something that in both cases I did not buy.
The EBAY was a golf club for $887 and the Amazon was a novel for $82,
far more than I would have spent on either.

I think I looked at the novel on Amazon and I remember the golf club
came up on a search with something else on Ebay.  

How this information could get to someone spoofing is a little
disconcerting.  

I have changed EBAY and Paypal Passwords as instructed.
