Auctiva balance due scam email

Asking for money for listing items on Ebay. Since I have never listed an item on ebay, ever, seems unlikely that I owe $128.61 for that purpose. I don\'t have an Auctiva account. Not too concerned about the associated threat as I don\'t plan on listing on ebay. If I was a regular lister on ebay, I might have fallen for this one. Third party scam? I think so - the CLICK HERE takes you to //annwcraven1.com/www.auctiva.com/signin.php. It doesn\'t take you to Auctiva.com.

Here\'s the email:

You Have a Balance Due!

Because you have a past due balance in the amount of $128.61, your account has been restricted.

Until your balance is paid in full, you will continue to see this message when you log in, and your account will remain limited to our Free Tools Plan features, such as the Auctiva Scrolling Gallery. However, you cannot post new listings to eBay, you cannot upload new images, and previously uploaded images may be deleted.

Please pay this balance today, which will allow you to pick an account plan to restore your Listing Service and Image Hosting.
