Advice on dealing with a phisher

  1. Ok, so this guy is spoofing an email message from eBay and has sent
    several such messages to my wife asking to have her account "verified".
    An obvious scam, since my wife hasn't even USED eBay before. I check
    out the source code of the HTML message, and sure enough, the URL you
    select isn't the one embedded in HTML, but directs you to the domain, not even remotely related to eBay. I did a whois query
    on it, and it appears to be a real name & address, not some spoof name.

    I don't want to take a retaliatory approach to this, but I am pretty
    steamed. Is there some sort of state regulatory agency in the
    registrar's home state I should contact, or perhaps I should just
    forward the info with message to the tech support/legal people at eBay,
    and let them deal with it?

    C'mon you sages and wizards, whaddyathink?
