I opened my email one day and saw an email from Pay Pal.

It read:

Dear  Valued  PayPal  Customer,

Suspicious  activities  were  caught  by  our  security  team  that  indicates
someone  was  trying  to  use  your  account  without  your  permission.

When  an  account  has  been  limited,  PayPal  often  need  some  form  of
verification  from  its  customers  to  solve  the  problem.

To  remove  the  limitation  on  your  account,  you  will  need  to  verify  your
account.  It  would  take  #-##  minutes  to  do  this;  the  procedure  is  very
simple.

We  have  sent  you  a  form  through  which  you  may  download  (see  attachment).
We  kindly  ask  that  you  provide  some  information  in  regards  to  your
account.

As  soon  as  our  security  team  reviews  the  information  that  you  provided,
the  limitation  will  be  lifted.

We thank you for your attention to this matter.  If  you  still  have
questions  about  account  limitations,  contact  customer  service  by
clicking  Contact  at  the  bottom  of  any  PayPal  page.

Best Regards,
PayPal  Account  Review  Department

 

It looked suspicious to me. So I contacted Pay Pal. They Suggested I forward it to them at: Spoof@paypal.com I did so and then I deleted the email.

Within a half an hour I got this email from Pay Pal:

Thanks for forwarding that suspicious-looking email. You’re right – it 
was a phishing attempt, and we’re working on stopping the fraud. By
reporting the problem, you’ve made a difference!
Identity thieves try to trick you into revealing your password or other
personal information through phishing emails and fake websites. To learn
more about online safety, click “Security Center” on any PayPal webpage.
Every email counts. When you forward suspicious-looking emails to
spoof@paypal.com, you help keep yourself and others safe from identity
theft.
Your account security is very important to us, so we appreciate your
extra effort.
Thanks,
PayPal

Please, Learn from my experience.
