I thought this was legit today from paypal for a split second when using a family laptop to check my emails, as my own email address was showing for who it was sent to, unlike the majority of spam that have "undisclosed-recipients" or similar-almost clicked! click here

I realised at the last min that it was not being sent to the right email associated with my paypal membership-with its real address showing at the bottom of the page, which appeared as "email0.paypal" as I highlighted "click here" from part 1-just a little suspect! So almost caught out as I have recently sent off for a few items through paypal (the money really did come off though, I checked today). im assuming that the official emails do not show "email0..." or im going to get caught out one day! Looks like another fresh email registration will be on its way soon to avoid these mails :(
