Pretend Paypal Emails

By Susan

I have started receiving what I think are emails from someone pretending to be Pay Pal.  These emails started coming again this past 8 days. I got 3 of them.  I have copied one of these emails below:

Subject: E-Mail ID #17281 PayPal Security Notification of Limited Account Access [Tue, 02 Aug 2005 01:46:12 +0400]
From:  View Contact Details ,
Date: Wed, 3 Aug 2005 00:49:10 -0400 (EDT)
