    I received this email yesterday. Weird since I have never opened a Paypay account.

    Could this be a moronic advertisement technique for me to contact and get persuaded to open one??

    This is a scam. Do not respond. I received the same letter about 6 months ago. The link sends you to a bogus page that looks like the real paypal page.They are trying to steal your account info.

    Never open any link from an email. Always goto a the website manually and you should be ok.

    I called PayPal about this and they once told me to send it to this paypal email address and I did this for 6 months and they told me it would stop but they kept popping in my Email So I said hell with this I never sent one again.
    I look at it this way that's why they have a delete button so you don't even have to look at it.

    It's a phishing scam. I get half a dozen per week in my various email accounts. I have also received similar emails phishing for IDs for CitiBank, Regions, Wells Fargo, and any number of other banking methods.

    I pity the unwary.

    Hi BingoT! I understand your reaction. I got one of these too. It is a scam. I called PayPal rather than open it, had a nice long talk with the Csr. They warned to keep up our guard and forward any others we get to them, for every one, there are a hundred more. They are prolific! Somehow this group is getting your email address. If I were you, I'd keep on sending this off to Paypal.:)

    Yes these scams go with virtually any business that does transactions online. No legitimate e-commerce web site would ask you to click on links to verify info. Never click on these links...EVER. You can tell it's fake by hovering your mouse over the link (not clicking on) that is displayed. You will then see the true link. Then send the email to the support/security email address, so that the security teams can get the website shut down, and possibly prosecute the crystal meth smokers.
