its a faux email. don't click any links. Its the links that hack into your account when you use them to log in....

BUT.. you can get out of email, then open up a new page for paypal, log in. If there is no transaction there, then you def know its a scam.

But, if your paypal has already been hacked, then you might have to do something about it before the money comes out of your account.

I bought a book and Picked it up from the seller about 3mths ago. last week, I received an ebay email.. (real one) saying congrats on your purchase (same book, different seller)....  I thought WTF??
I logged into ebay, no purchase. So I logged back into email and forwarded it to spoof@ebay.com.au
Still not sure why I got the ebay email. Its a real EBAY email too.... on my safe list! So weird.

anyway, be careful mate.  mwah

how do I do that?

In Hotmail or live.com, mark the email as junk....
then go into your junk box, and tick the email, then hit the *block* tab.  (or sweep tab, cant quite remember off top of my head)
It will bring up a window with the senders email address asking if you want to block the following senders, and you click yes.
