Possibly fake email/transaction

Hey guys, I woke up this morning to a email from ''PayPal'' saying I had recently made a transaction and that this was my receipt, it didn't look like the normal emails.. I'm just worried because it was a lot of money apparently spent, do you think I should chase this up or just ignore?

Thanks for your help!

Emails from PayPal will always address you by your first and last names or business name. If you're unsure of an email, don't click any links in the email. Go to the website directly to log in and check for any notices or transactions in your account. If you see any unauthorized transactions you can dispute them.

 

Here is a PayPal link with details on fake emails and a PayPal email address you can forward them to.
