Me too........If I have any doubt I always forward it to patpal for verification.

Remember that the paypal address will always have the prefix HTTPS. If it has to do with anything that is secure

You can just look at the email headers and see where the IP came from. I always trace them back to places like India and Africa...plus whenever you see a word spelled wrong like in that message, right off the bat its a joke. I just delete em. Anyone who would actually take that email seriously (peolpe do) is a moron and should not be using a computer in the first place.

Well, to the newb user it can seem legit cuz they don't know what to look for. I forward them so that Paypal can be aware and investigate if they so choose. I don't ever use those links that any email provides.
