    Just received this email with the heading "Your account paypal will be limited":

    Code:

    Notice of changes to the PayPal User Agreement

    How do I know this is not a fake email?
    
    An email really coming from PayPal will address you by your first and last names or your business name. It will not ask you for sensitive information like your password, bank account or credit card details. Most fake emails threaten that your account will be in jeopardy if you do not take action immediately. An email that urgently requests you to supply sensitive personal information is usually an attempt at fraud. Also, fake emails often contain misspellings and grammatical errors or are written in a language which you did not set as preferred for your PayPal account. Remember not to click any links in suspicious looking emails.

    The Click here part redirects to:
    Code:
    http://karabaglarhaliyikama.com/paypal.php/
    All the other links point to paypal.

    The footer of the mail clearly mentions that "An email really coming from PayPal will address you by your first and last names or your business name." whereas this mail does not.
    The email address to which the email came to is NOT associated with my paypal.

    LOL

    That's a phishing email so don't click a single thing. PayPal never addresses it's clients as "Dear"....grammar mistakes too.

    For those who've advised me not to follow the links and the email is a spam and phishing email: I really appreciate your concern guys.

    I think most of you missed my last line in the post. BTW it was:

    The sad part, of course, is that a portion of recipients of that email would fall victim to it.
