Paypal scams - coming in thick and fast now

Three emails from Paypal in two days. All telling me that my Paypal account has been accessed by a third party.

To deal with it please click on the Link below etc....

Well, first of all I don't have a Paypal account so it would be difficult for even me to access it, let alone a third party.

Have forwarded it to spoof @paypal.co.uk and deleted it (again).

Thanks for warning us, pj123.

Looks like it is eBay as well. Had 5 emails so far today about my eBay account.

Again, I don't have an eBay account so I just forward them to spoof @ebay.co.uk and then delete them.

If you do have an ebay or paypal account, don't answer any emails you get. Log in to your ebay account and check "My Messages" from there. If the same emails don't show up, they are scams, delete them. Do the same for your Paypal account.
