Sounds very much like a phishing email.
Have had x2 in the past 9 days. Hate them

Log into paypal via your browser. See what, if anything is there.

Be careful.

Good Luck.

yea when i open paypal my notifacation says add mobile number which it always has,then right below that it asks me to confirm my email.

What should i do click the confirm link in my email then erase my cookies before going to any other window user ?

i dont know it just sounds fishy to me for them to ask after so long to confirm my email
again i havent added any new emails the ebay!

do you have a user specifically for this account, if yes, do it and confirm your email address as requested by them. Still odd them asking for that.
