Personal account, Not Business


I have a personal account, have had for a long time. I also have a PayPal debit card, which makes life easier. And I have one subscription that I use PayPal for to pay it, nothing big, it’s just easy to not have to think about it.


However, today I got an email for my “business”. I don’t have a business! My friends and I use friends and family to send to each other for holidays, to help each other out, birthdays, etc. So wondering why I got this: “Our ongoing focus is to help your business thrive” at the bottom of the page. Is this a generic email sent out to all PayPal users?
