I also recieved a few of these, only mine stated "Your account has been flagged after numerous attempts to log in to your account from different IP addresses. Contacted Paypal and was told those are fradulent e.mails, and to be careful not to click on any of the links. Just a heads up!

I got a lot of emails saying that a yahoo email address was added to my account and that i needed to verify that. The first time i went to the paypal website and found out that it was fake. Somehow they got spyware on my computer and found my password to ebay and post the Volvo xc70 for $70,000. I talked to ebay and they noticed that someone from a different IP that i usually dont use got into my account. Just beware not to click on the links that they added in the emails.
