RE; emails pretending to be PayPal.

Hi guys.I’ve received a deluge of emails pretending to be PayPal, so the other day I’ve forwarded one of the emails to their spam section on here is a copy of the email I received back read important that everybody reads it.

Here is there an email address to report any suspect emails

Dear Bob Hoswell,
Thank you for partnering with PayPal to combat fraudulent emails. We take reports of suspicious email very seriously. Your submission helps us identify potentially malicious activity and take the appropriate action needed to protect our customers.
Did you know that approximately 90% of all email sent worldwide falls into the spoof, phishing, spam, and general junk category? By submitting reports of suspicious email to us you are helping to address this problem.
To help you identify suspicious email, below are a few things that PayPal will never do in an email communication:
1. Send an email to: "Undisclosed Recipients" or more than one email address 2. Ask you to download a form or file to resolve an issue 3. Ask to verify an account using personal information such as name, date of birth, driver license, or address 4. Ask to verify an account using bank account information such as bank name, routing number, or PIN number 5. Ask to verify an account using credit card information such as credit card number or type, expiration date, ATM PIN number, or CVV2 security code 6. Ask you for your security question answers without displaying each security question you created 7. Ask you to ship an item, pay a shipping fee, send a Western Union Money Transfer, or provide a tracking number before the payment received is available in your transaction history Any time you receive an email about activity to your PayPal account, the safest way to confirm the validity is to login directly to the PayPal website and review the relevant section. If you see suspicious activity, you would do the following:
1. Open a new browser and type in ""
2. Log in to your PayPal account.
3. Click "Activity" near the top of the page.
4. Click on the suspicious transaction to expand the details.
5. Click "Report this as unauthorized"
6. Complete the report process on the next screen.
If you have any other questions about PayPal security, please visit the PayPal Security Center.
Thanks again for your help.
PayPal Security
