    i would check my credit card statements if i where you. Also, you should check out paypals site and see if they have any news about a fake letter, also check to see what their email policy is.

    guys read the link

    you know www this and dot com?

    well that is dot ch

    china

    so some one went ahead and created a website called "pass.cgi.security.user.member.pals.secure"

    only the website is a pay pal clone designed to get you to log in to your account and thus if you do you unknowingly gave these spammers your paypal info and it's happy shopping for some dudes.

    paypal always works. It is very rare for paypal to be down.

    check that you have the correct link.

    If your account is at zero that might be good but crooks can find away to use your account.
