I've had so many PayPal people tell me it's not their domain despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
Doesn't inspire confidence at all...
That's what I thought, until I received a link towards epl.paypal-communication.com .
After some digging around, that domains is also registered by paypal, but it gave me quite the scare.
So it is legit? Really strange PayPal does this, as I only (tend to) trust 'paypal.com'.
I've just had one of these.
It looks suspicious due to the target URL but has my real name on it which is very unusual for a scam.
The site's SSL certificate is an Extended Validation one issued by DigiCert to "PayPal, Inc. [US]" which would suggest it is actually legitimate but the domain is registered to "Epsilon Data Management" (whereas paypal.co.uk and paypal.com are not) which is suspicious again!
I've sent a help email about it through my account and forwarded the email to email@example.com
I'll update this thread if I get a definitive response.
My complete experiences of trying to get PayPal's opinion on emails with links to epl.paypal-communication.com are summarised here in the following link. I hope it's OK to post it here.
I've given up!
