Exclamation Warning PayPal phishing scam alert

I just got an email to one of my old PayPal email addresses, I spotted it straight away as I used to study computer security
so I know what these look like and how to track them back to the owner. It might catch a lot out though.

( This is defiantly a phisher even though it has by the look of it PayPal's real info )

Here are the details

I got one yesterday, was different to that but definitely a scam. It said my account was limited, I logged in to PayPal & there was no limitation message there. The email wasn't addressed to the full name on my Paypal, just the email address. I know PayPal always include your full name in an email. The email was off support@noreply.co.uk.

Always check the return e-mail - headers and footers of e-mails.

I never click pp or eb links from e-mails /period - only when logged INTO the website
