its a scam mate...

I just delete these kinda emails straight away... no point..

COMMON SENSE !!! if a message is that urgent. You will have an alert message when you log into your paypal account.. Again, whenever you log into your paypal account.. enter the address... do not use a search engine..

Another good thing about Internet Explorer 7 is that it has got a Phishing filter which also helps.
