50% ... though as I was giving my answers, I guessed one was legitimate and all the rest were phishing (I am suspicious).

Better to err on that side than the other way.

80%. But one of the reasons given that it was legit was that it was addressed to the recipient by name. That doesn't seem to hard to do .

90%, but the one I got wrong was because the link was showed on the bottom or so

I never open emails from ebay paypal or whatever bank, since I"m not a member of either...

It might not seem hard to do, but keep in mind, they're not just writing a single email to you, they're writing a generic email and spamming it to a million people (literally).

Also keep in mind that they might not know your actual name. If all they have is your email address (jfk@foo.net) they have no idea what "jfk" stands for.

^Actually, I get a ton of spam addressed to a name that looks like it could belong to my address. I think the spammers' database has email address plus a guess as to what the real name is.
