I can confirm that this email is not from PayPal.
If you ever receive a payment to your account you can check this by logging in as normal and reviewing your payment history. Though a payment may be held you will still see the money in your pending balance.
You’ll know that an email is not from PayPal when:
I hope this helps.
I receive one today, and yeah it was really so strange to have this.

I got this email a couple of days ago and only came across it today (it was in my Spam folder). It told me I had to reply by 10 January, when it was only sent just before 9pm on 9 January. It also addressed my by my full email address and not my name/s. these things both made me suspicious enough to look carefully at the sender's email address [removed] I did note that it was not a Paypal address or any attempt to be one but it did have the Paypal logo at the top and "Copyright © 1999-2017 PayPal Inc. All rights reserved." at the bottom.. So, I forwarded it to email@example.com and have now had a reply from them (very promptly too) to say
Thanks for taking an active role by reporting suspicious-looking emails.
Unfortunately, we're unable to determine if this email is considered
phishing because the email did not claim to come from PayPal.
Nonetheless, we are grateful for your concern. "
So I then search engined the email address and I can't find anything on anything (maybe I'm just too stupid to do it right?!) So long story short, I'm still confused, I'm going to delete the email and hope that nothing happens with my well used Paypal account, payments or my bank cards!
Maybe someone else can help with more info for us?????
When PayPal send you an email we will always address you using your full name and we never put links in our emails. However as the email address seems to be addressing someone elses name I would suggest that you contact us to confirm the emails you have been receiving.
To contact us please click on the contact us link at the bottom of every PayPal page.
I hope this helps
i got an email with the same email address and i sent it to firstname.lastname@example.org. can you please send the correct link of Paypal where we can register. is there a fake website of this?
Guys. When getting an email like this, click forward and check the actual email. This is one I got today from [removed]So the name on the email account is a correct PayPal account but the actual address is a fraud. Always check for the actual address. What you see is basically a title. Always be vigilant, I learnt the hard way.
I received a similar email this morning. On closer inspection, I noticed the email was from intl.paypa"i".com. (without the quotes). The last letter in paypal was cleverly replaced with a capital "i". Most definitely a scam.
This morning I just received an email similar as graham01 had received. "Welcome to Paypal...." from [removed]
I do use Paypal with another email address, but Paypal recipient email address has never been used to sign up on Paypal ! Also email is addressed to "tom lee" with chinese address. Of course it is not my name and I do not leave in China.
What is the next process to be sure that no Paypal account will be used with my email address ? (Moreover my email address is build with firstname+lastname@companyname) .
What about the confirmation code within Paypal message ? How to contact Paypal and tell them to delete this account ?
Please help !
