    I think it was. I just deleted it. The link in it did not lead to PayPal's website, but actually somewhere's else.

    Your link doesn't work, but NEVER log into Paypal or ebay through a link, they are always a scam.

    Link doesn't work because I realized the message was a phish attempt. Figures then. Whenever PayPal has legitimately contacted me, they've always used a plain-text email. This one had their logo and everything. I'd personally like to find some of these scam artists, bust down their door with a shotgun and haul 'em off to the jail myself.

    Here's one I got. I forwarded it to Paypal. Dont think the link in thepost works any more. Pay pal prolly had it shut down . But it took you to a log on page exactly like Pay pals page. If you loged on they got your password and access to your account Very well done. Phishing at its finest. NEVER LOG ON TO PAY PAL FROM A EMAIL LINK!
    always go to paypal.com.

    Yeah I got one from paypal the other day to verify another e-mail addy on my account. When I clicked the link I noticed the title in the blue bar on top of the window said like 10.32.236...something, but the address bar said service.paypal.com or whatever. First time I have gotten one, but glad i caught it:D
