Phone them up and ask, to see whether it is legitimate.

08707 307 191

Better to log in then go through contact us on paypal site, as the give you a temporary pin number to chat about your account.

Have you been sent a phishing e-mail?

I have the answer to this for you. all you need to do is accept 1000 nigerian dollars from my cousin benson then once you have the cheque send me £50 in cash in return and I will email the reason why this has happened to your account sir.

As if paypal or anybody else is going to ask for that sort of information.

If you were asked in an e-mail purporting to be paypal, forward the e-mail to 'spoof@paypal.com' and they will tell you if it came from them. Which is extremely unlikely.

Don't ever click a link in any ebay or paypal e-mail or answer it. Most are fakes but they look authentic.

Indeed, and add any email claiming to be from a Bank to that list too...
