Welcome to the forum!
If ever you have a doubt about the validity of an email that claims to have been sent from PayPal, you can forward it to email@example.com to have it reviewed.
You did the right thing by checking your PayPal account to see if there was a transaction. That will always be the safest barometer of legitimacy.
I hope this helps!
