    I think I had one too but I just went into my paypal account to see - nothing needed changing.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Cheers.

    The link I sent you isn't a paypal link.. It takes you to the site you purcashed off and shows you a paypal button...

    Its very different to a direct paypal link in a email...

    That make sense seahorse ?

    There's always loads of spoof emails going round. Any that look suspicious from PayPal I just forward to spoof@paypal.com. Even if I get a genuine one from PayPal I never click on the email link but rather log in from the web site.

    Got one today about my Halifax account - amazing, I never knew I had an account with them!
