    Yes, I too have received those scam emails reporting to be from Paypal saying there were unresolved issues with my account. They were spam and false. You need to report them to paypal and always do your homework in regards to spam!!!!!!!!!!!

    Paypal NEVER puts a link in their emails. If you get a legitimate email from them, it will tell you to log onto your account. It will NEVER link to Paypal, as a safety feature. It's a phishing scam- they set up a site to look just like Paypal, and when you log in- they capture your username AND password. Bad bad bad.
