    Got an email from PP with the title "Your Paypal account could be suspended"
    the email looks like a legitimate mail from paypal, this is what it said-
    Code:
     [COLOR=#c88039][B]Security Center ![/B][/COLOR] 
         Dear valued PayPaI member,
      [B]Attention! Your PayPaI Account Could Be Suspended! [/B] 
     Identity protection matters. And PayPaI works day and night to help keep your identity safe. 
     That?s why it has come to our attention that your PayPaI account  information needs to be updated as part of our continuing commitment to  protect your account and to reduce the instance of fraud on our website.
     If you could take 5-10 minutes out of your online experience and  update your personal records you will not run into any future problems  with the online service.
     However, failure to update your records will result in account suspension.
     Once you have updated your account records, your PayPaI session will not be interrupted and will continue as normal.
     To login to your PayPaI account and update your records click on the following link:
     
    update
    
    Updating your billing information and security questions will prevent unauthorized third party access, and possibly unauthorized purchases. We thank you for your cooperation. 
      Sincerely, 
    PaypaI  
    
    
    BUT it was sent from "service [at] paypal-marketing[dot]co[dot]uk"
    and when clicking the update button it leads to a site that looks exactly like PP but it's address is as seen on this screenshot i attached.

    This is definately a paypal phishing scam, isn't it?

    100% phishing.

    Paypal will always address you by your full name.

    "Dear valued customer..." meh, fucking scammers. get the IP address and run a trace, see if they are mailing from a server and contact the company hosting the servers.
