    Just an FYI - I had an email supposedly from Pay Pal today saying there was a lot of activity on the credit card I use for them. It's a separate card I use for nothing else and I'm going to call and be sure, but I haven't used it in months. I didn't go any further on the email, but imagine they wanted the card number to verify it.

    forward the e-mail to: spoof@paypal.com

    They will let you know if it was from them or not.

    I fell for one of those phishing e-mails - it sure looked genuine!

    It was a scam....I have received one. Paypal warns that they would never send an email to you like that. Paypal does suggest you open a new window (not from email) and check your account.
