    On one of those links I shared, someone listed common characteristics of these scam emails.

    1. They often contain bad language. Remember badly written sentences and spelling and grammatical errors. Pay attention! The trend is that fewer errors are false email.
    Check!
    "... An unusual activity", the space before the comma after the word "password", "informations", no space between click and dispute, etcetera. Check!

    2. Often lacking a personal salutation. You will be addressed as "Dear Customer" or "Dear Sir / mevrouw'.Toch there are fake emails which can indeed be addressed with your name, so stay alert.
    "Hello". Check!

    3. A vague e-mail address that was used as a shipping address.
    Probably.

    4. Scammers want you to click on a link and use frequently. They also put colorful buttons.
    Big orange button. Check!

    Like said above, the email you have recieved is most likely a scam email. Somebody is probably targeting you..

    Phishing scam. Paypal will always address you by your first and last name. Never just "Hello," or "Dear Paypal User,". There are tons of spelling and grammar issues with this as well. This is NOT from PayPal, if you click the link and try to log in, it will record your keystrokes and will give the attacker the info needed to login to your paypal account. Please disregard this email or send it to [email protected] without altering anything so they can investigate and try to catch the attacker.

    What if this guy is the scammer him/herself?
    I mean... If I was that person, I'd warn the people as well, so they check their emails if they have notifications from pp and..
    So, I don't think he is that stupid..
