I received a email from "paypay"days ago,at least I thought it was from paypal at first.It said that my paypal acount had been accessed by an unauthorized third party.So in order to protecr my account I need to click the link in the email and anwer some security questions blah blah blah.I was very careful about that.I login in my paypal acount with"www.palpay.com",nothing went wrong with my acount.According to paypal,that email is a scam,tried to steal my paypal acount if I happend to click the link they offored and answerd the so called "security questions". Has this ever happened to you?God forbidden!So be careful next time you receive an email from "paypal",never click the link it offer,login in safely with "www.paypal.com".

very Very good advice Gxnfly, this kind of scam goes on repeatedly. Everyone will do well to heed your warning and do as you have doen, go straight to your paypal account. Remember that any real financial account you have will never ask for your personal account information in an email or phone call for that matter.

Yes, the same thing has happened to me. When I went to my account everything looked fine. I notified PayPal and they wrote me back immediately saying that there was a scam going on. They had me change my password and were very helpful. Now, whenever I get an email from "PayPal" I will write them and ask if it was from them. You are not alone. This is happening to thousands.
