The hackers using a coffe place IP address in Paris for the crime.
You just have to track down the sender.I guess this is bunch of kids trying ther hacker skills.
I got one too! It was in my Spam folder but I almost fell for it (I had a negative balance for a few days and I thought to have read somewhere that this could negatively affect my Paypal account) but in the end the 'download this and fill it out' instead of a 'go to the website and fill something out' got me suspicious.
Received this email today but noticed that when I clicked on the link a secure bar wasn't on the address and it said paypel....
so glad I didn't enter my bank account information but I did enter my password. I hope they can't hack into my email.

This is what the email I recieved today looked like.
It is very clean and well presented, and I would have fallen for it if I hadn't checked the email it came from and saw that what had looked correct when I initially saw it in the email list was actually showing up as service @ intl.paypaI.com once I got into the actual email. That is a capital I, rather than a lowercase L, and is not supposed to be there.
Going through my bookmarked page rather than the link provided showed there was nothing wrong with my account, and thankfully I knew already to send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is mainly just to show what I recieved, cause paypai be phishin.
