suspicious email

I received an email telling me mu PayPal account access was suspended and to click on the link to reactivate my account

 

Is this for real or is it an attempt to access my account.

 

I had no trouble logging into my account. I did not use the link in the email

Re: suspicious email

When in doubt:

* Forward the entire email to:    spoof@paypal.com.
* Do not alter the subject line or forward the message as an attachment.
* Delete the suspicious email from your inbox.
* Never click on any links within the email or open any attachments.

 

Look at the email address domain and wording in the email, grammar, salutation, spelling, etc.  If any of these are questionable, it's most likely a spoof.
