I've received another email - different sender but it's obviously a fake.

services@intl-paypal.com

saying:

Your Account Has Been Limited. 
 
 
Your PayPal account has been limited because we've noticed significant changes
in your account activity. As your payment processor,we need to understand these
changes better.

Please log in to your PayPal account and provide the requested information.
If we don't receive this information, we will be unable to remove this limitation.
Once we receive and review your documentation, we will email you regarding
the status of your account.
 
It's got a link supposedly to log into your PayPal account, but goodness knows where it goes or what it does really.


I logged in - No, not by the link - and there is no limit on my Paypal.

They don't have the paypal details it is just a random selection of email addresses generated by software. it is a hit and miss thing. but if you respond then it is known that the email address is genuine and that gets passed on to other scammers

NEVER click a link in an email unless you know the source can be trusted.

OK. I just got an email inviting me to partake in a Paypal survey.

Is this genuine? Does PaPal do that?

It ask to click on link to do the survey. Another link says 'opt out'. Either way, you have to click on a link, which I am not prepared to do.

yes they do, but do not click on any links, especially considering the recent history of the other PayPal emails.

If you really want to do the survey, report the email to PayPal, and if they say it's legit, go for it.

"How do i know if an email is from PayPal"

https://www.paypal.com/selfhelp/article/FAQ914/1

(well I think they do, I have received invitations for surveys on various occasions, usually after i have contacted their customer support, but I have never opened the emails, just read the opening line and then hit delete LOL)

I don't do surveys, or enter invitations to enter for overseas holidays, cars, free tickets whatever.
Every time I've done that I've received increased phone calls from telemarketers.
