There doesn't seem any justification

for closing your Paypal account, simply because someone decided to send you a phishing email. It happens all the time, and there's absolutely nothing PayPal can do about it, other than issue repeated warnings - which they have, on many occasions.

Pretty well every major financial institution and all online auction companies have had to contend with this kind of thing, and if everyone closed their accounts simply because a criminal tried to get their details the banks would all be out of business.
