3. Click the "Seller Account" link (below My Account in the left navigation menu).
4. Click the "Invoice" link.

The link leads to a lookalike eBay login page hosted in Australia. Fortunately, this clown didn't know enough HTML to disguise the link, so let's hope it won't fool many recipients before the hosting service takes it down.
