Hi.Not sure if this is the right forum or not but here it is anyway. Have received an email supposedly from Paypal asking me to open an attachment and filling out a form to re-establish access to my paypal account.
Well, I still have access to my account via their web site as normal. I have forwarded the email to Paypal as they suggest in their security section.
The email is not addressed to me personally but to 'customer' and is not signed by any one except 'Paypal Review Department'.
This is just a heads up for anyone receiving something similar.

Delete it, It's spam...

If they had really needed you to submit anything you could view the forms after logging in + you would have suspended your account suspended until you had submitted them.

I have been getting a few of these as well, and pay for what you bought invoices when I bought nothing. Just report it to paypal as you have done and they usually get back to you in about 2 weeks.
