It’s a scam. If it’s like what I received the other day, it’s also an extraordinarily well constructed scam, down to a perfect clone of the PayPal home page and a domain that’s really close to the domain. This isn’t some kid putting the scam together in his basement either, it’s very well done.

But you wouldn’t have to worry about it if you follow my basic rule of thumb: Never click on a link in an email message.
