Spam email from PayPal with my name on it!

Very real looking

I received a very authentic looking email allegedly from PayPal, this had my full name on it.
the only thing that made me suspicious was that it had a like to recover my password if I had forgotten it

I forwarded to spoof@paypal.com and they have just confirmed that it is spam - take care

I got the same one, I didn't know it was spam! I deleted it anyway because I don't use paypal much. Thanks for letting us know.

Get them frequently too.
However it's often telling me I've paid a high amount for some fictitious item and to log in here if there are any queries.

very sneaky.

don't log in on their link. I go to my own paypal account and log in and of course there is no such thing
