Paypal Scammer

The emails are very similar to the ones i occasionally get from ebay trying to tell me that my account is going to be shut down.

Anyone else beet getting emails that look a little something like this:

Quote:
Dear PayPal user,

We are currently performing regular maintenance of our security
measures. Your account has been randomly selected for this
maintenance, and you will now be taken through a series of identity
verification pages. Protecting the security of your
PayPal account is our primary concern, and we apologize for any
inconvenience this may cause.

We recently received a report of unauthorized credit card use
associated with this account. As a precaution, we have
limited access to you PayPal account in order to protect against future
unauthorized transactions.You can check your
transaction details in attachment.

Case ID Number: PE-901-449-020

Please understand that this is a security measure intended to help
protect you and your account.
Thank you,

they come from the email address [email protected] and have an attachment with a ".exe" ending. I havent clicked it and dont plan to, just wondering if anyone else is getting these.

Yeah, in your e-mail program you can easily have the 'From' take on the appearance of any registered domain.
